Food recalls

Bean sprouts seem like a chronic offender.

Sprouts of various kinds, yes. Sadly the warm, moist conditions they require for growth correspond very closely to the conditions favored by pathogens.

OK.  Just spoke to the produce manager in our local downtown FreshCo and he knows about the bean sprouts issue.  He says ours are not on the contaminated dates but to bring them in if I felt better...and somehow I think I'll feel better not eating them.  Thanks CD for always being there.

"Listeria outbreak: 4 deaths, 30 hospitalizations linked to recalled enoki mushrooms"

Quote

Sun Hong Foods recalled the mushrooms Monday because they may be contaminated with listeria, according to the Food and Drug Administration's website.

Four deaths have been reported in California, Hawaii and New Jersey, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC has gotten 36 reports of infected people from 17 states...

"Do not eat, serve, or sell any recalled enoki mushrooms distributed by Sun Hong Foods, Inc." the CDC said on its website.

I'm guessing this is related to the previous sprouts recall, but a Sobey's/Foodland Asian vegetable mix is also being recalled in Ontario for salmonella.

A hard cheese called "La Napoleon," from Quebec's Fromagerie Blackburn, has been recalled for possible listeria contamination. At present, only Quebec is affected.

Is it my imagination, or do the majority of food recalls in Canada originate in Quebec?

Another cheese from the same producer has been added to the recall.

Forgot to post, but in April, I believe, we had a message on the home phone from Shoprite...since I used the loyalty card for our purchase, an item that was recalled was tracked back. I was pretty happy that the system worked...and that said item was still in the freezer.

An explanation of how the e coli outbreaks are started.  One thing not mentioned in this article and which I have read elsewhere, is that the land areas defining the edges of the romaine fields are cleared of all vegetation which might otherwise have prevented the airborne fecal matter from reaching the vegetable fields.
