Had to Google that one. 

 

Interesting (if I can use the word) foodborne illness in that it can take up to 70 days to appear.  By that time one would have no idea what caused the illness.

"Ground beef sold at Meijer stores recalled because it may contain pieces of plastic"

Quote

A multistate, voluntary recall has been issued for prepacked, 1-pound Meijer ground beef that may contain hard pieces of plastic.

The recall, announced Tuesday, includes all products produced and prepackaged by JBS Plainwell under the Meijer brand label with a sell-by date of April 10, 2019, the grocery store chain and JBS said in a joint statement.

The ground beef was sold between March 22 and April 9 in all Meijer stores in Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky and Wisconsin.

The emphasis of the states is mine. The article lists specific product codes.

"Pre-cut melon linked to US salmonella outbreak recalled in Tennessee and Kentucky"

Quote

Nearly 100 people have gotten sick in a salmonella outbreak involving cut melon. 

An Indianapolis-based company has issued a recall for melon products sold in 16 states after being linked to the salmonella outbreak.

The bold is my emphasis. See the article for the listing of the 16 states impacted.

And this is a link to the FDA's online article about the recall (click).

Hello all,  We checked the numbers on our package of Kirkland veggie burgers and although the UPC number is a match...the code on product is not at all.  So, I am assuming ours are completely fine.  

 

One always wonders how metal and rubber and plastic bits, etc, etc, etc, get into the mix.  Thanks again chromedome.  I am actually getting these Canadian recall warnings also but I do appreciate the trouble that you, and Toliver, go to on our behalf.  (Also I am still not actually 'online' until after I get hand surgery...if I do before the next millenium...)

This one's been in the news already, but it may affect some of us here. Glass fragments in some PC brand and Black Label sauces from the Loblaw's stores.

Would appear to be a good idea not to eat commercially prepared foods.  Ya think?

Well, as a general principle that's hard to argue against. :)

 

Realistically, the number of recalls relative to the volume of manufactured food is pretty low. I don't eat a lot of processed foods in the normal run of things*, but the odds aren't bad when I do.

 

(*That being said, a lot of my sweetie's favorite comfort foods include canned cream of mushroom soup and suchlike, so I eat 'em more than I used to...but still not much)

Your sweetie would not fare all that well in our house.  My memories of my Mother's cooking, besides the daily shoe-leather steak, were a lot of sauces from soups: cream of mushroom, celery and chicken.   My mouth forms that horrible shape of extreme rejection even when I think of them.  You are a brave and generous gentleman.

NP. I know you read them, I know you have problems typing. I won't at all be slighted if they get no response. :)
