Salmonella contamination prompts Florida grower to recall tomatoes

Very Important Recall, just a heads up, my grandmother is currently suffering from ecoli in the bloodstream, it is so very important to wash your fruits and veggies and scrub them.  I remember as a kid picking fruits and veggies and eating without washing.  It should NEVER be done.  E-coli and Salmonella are deadly!

A Florida tomato grower is voluntarily recalling its grape tomatoes after a sample tested positive for salmonella.

Six L’s Packing Company Inc. said in a statement Monday that no illnesses had been reported in connection to the recall as of April 29.

The Immokalee, Fla.-based company says the recalled product was packed on April 11 under the Cherry Berry lot code DW-H in clam shells or 20-pound cardboard containers. The tomatoes were distributed to California, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia, as well as Canada.

The tomatoes also were used in deli salads made by Tracy-based Taylor Farms Pacific Inc. The salads were sold in Albertsons, Raley’s, Safeway, Savemart, Sam’s Club and Walmart stores across the West and some Midwestern states.

Thanks for the heads up Jay 😉

Recall Deli Meat

 

 

Giant supermarkets has announced a recall of a type of Lebanon bologna due to an E.coli investigation by the USDA.

The bologna is sold by the Palmyra Bologna Co., and sold under the name Seltzer’s Lebanon Beef Bologna. The meat would have been produced in December 2010, according to the company. The recall does not affect any products packaged since then.

Both the supermarket chain and the manufacturer said the meat is likely no longer on shelves.

“While most of the product being recalled has been consumed weeks or months ago and is likely no longer in retail stores, the decision to recall the bologna was made out of an abundance of caution after consulting with the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA),” Palmyra said in a news release.

14,000 pounds of ground beef recalled in 10 states due to E. coli – National working moms | Examiner.com

 

 

The United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced thousands of pounds of ground beef products are being recalled due to the possibility of E. coli 0147:H7 contamination.  According to the FSIS press release issued March 8, 2011, the Kansas-based Creekstone Farms Premium Beef is recalling more than 14,000 pounds of ground beef products including:

  • Approx. 40-pound cases of “BEEF FINE GRIND 81/19 NATURAL,” containing 10-pound chubs with identifying product code of “80185.”
  • Approx. 40-pound cases of “BEEF CHUCK FINE GRIND 81/19 NATURAL,” containing 10-pound chubs with identifying product code of “80285.”
  • Approx. 40-pound cases of “BEEF SIRLOIN FINE GRIND 91/9 NATURAL,” containing 10-pound chubs with product code of “80495.”
  • Approx. 40-pound cases of “BEEF FINE GRIND 90/10 NATURAL,” containing 5-pound chubs with product code of “85165.”
  • Approx. 60-pound cases of “BEEF FINE GROUND 93/7,” containing 10-pound chubs with product code of “86191.”

Each case label bears the establishment number “EST. 27” inside the USDA mark.

Products involved in the recall were produced on February 22, 2011.  Because the products were shipped to Arizona, California, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, North Caroline, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Washington, the items may have been repackaged and sold under different brand names.  FSIS will post the retail distribution listings when they are available.

Lab results confirmed a positive test for E. coli, a potentially deadly bacterium.  No reports of illness have been reported. According to FSIS, the only way to ensure ground beef is cooked to a high enough temperature to kill harmful bacteria is to measure the internal temperature of the product.

Images of the labels are available for viewing.  For more information, contact Jim Rogers at (620) 741-3352.
