Food recalls

Here is a recall of 80,000 pounds of ham from my state in Johnston County. They do not say where it may have been shipped or sold.

Here' another article on that recall that does sort of mention where and what:

"1 dead as N.C. meat producer recalls ready-to-eat ham products for listeria concerns"

Quote

Johnston County Hams of Smithfield, North Carolina, has recalled the products, produced between April 3, 2017, and Oct. 2, 2018, according to the Department of Agriculture. The ready-to-eat deli-loaf ham items, which weighed between seven and eight pounds, were shipped to distributors in North Carolina, South Carolina, New York, Maryland and Virginia...

 

The ham products were plastic-wrapped and carried one of five different labels including "Johnston County Hams Inc., Country Style Fully Cooked Boneless Deli Ham," "Goodnight Brothers Country Ham Boneless Fully Cooked," and "Padow’s Hams & Deli, Inc. Fully Cooked Country Ham Boneless Glazed with Brown Sugar."

Hams labelled "Ole Fashioned Sugar Cured, The Old Dominion Brand Hams Premium Fully Cooked Country Ham" and "Premium Fully Cooked Country Ham, Less Salt, Distributed By: Valley Country Hams LLC" had specific sell-by dates from April 10, 2018 to Sept. 27, 2019.

 

The article lists at the end the plant manager's phone number if anyone needs more information.

A different hamburger recall than the previous one that was posted:

"6.5 million pounds of beef recalled due to salmonella outbreak"

Quote

Arizona-based meat producer JBS Tolleson, Inc. is recalling 6,500,966 pounds of "various raw, non-intact beef products" due to an outbreak of salmonella, the United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Thursday...
The recalled products were packaged between July 26 and September 7 and were sold nationwide under brand names Walmart, Cedar River Farms Natural Beef, Showcase, Showcase/Walmart and JBS Generic.

The USDA inspection mark on the packaging of the recalled products contains the establishment number "EST. 267."

"FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers' freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase," the agency said in announcing the recall.

The recall has expanded...more veggies may have been contaminated which has led to more ready-to-eat products being recalled from more stores.

This article lists the stores impacted and some of the products:

"Recall hits millions of pounds of food from Harris Teeter, 7-Eleven, Kroger and more"

Quote

I'm so glad I have access to local, farm-raised beef, pork and chicken.

 

 

Yes, kay.

 

I'm sure my access is not up to your locally sourced small farmers, but at least I was able to get a pound of ground chuck that was ground at Food Lion on the same day my grocery order was delivered.

 

I tried shopping at Walmart for groceries one time. It was a deal breaker when I came across packages of ground beef that were in deep, shrink-wrapped packages with expiry dates a week out or more. This is a sure indication they have been treated with carbon monoxide, although there's no requirement to inform the buying public.

 

Thank God we still have butchers at Food Lion. It's just less risky, I think. Of course it's a pain to have to patty and freeze the meat the same day you receive it, but so worth it to me. I do wonder how long the onsite butchers will last as things get trimmed down to the bone, seemingly in every aspect of life.

I will NOT buy meat at WalMart. It's loathesome. I've never had any luck with produce there, either. So I just don't go, except when I get to jonesing for their black bean and white corn salsa, which is pretty doggoned good salsa.

CDC takes aggressive and widespread action against new, widespread E. Coli outbreak: throw away any and all romaine lettuce. associated with any form of romaine lettuce, and says to throw it all away.

 

Quote

“This advice includes all types or uses of romaine lettuce, such as whole heads of romaine, hearts of romaine, and bags and boxes of precut lettuce and salad mixes that contain romaine, including baby romaine, spring mix, and Caesar salad,” the CDC said. “If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine or whether a salad mix contains romaine, do not eat it and throw it away.”

 

and

 

Quote

The Food and Drug Administration issued a statement saying it is making a special effort to test romaine for contamination across the country.

 

“The quick and aggressive steps we’re taking today are aimed at making sure we get ahead of this emerging outbreak, to reduce risk to consumers, and to help people protect themselves and their families from this foodborne illness outbreak. This is especially important ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, when people will be sitting down for family meals,” said FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb.

 

This strain of E. Coli is particularly virulent, and produces the Shiga toxin - which can cause kidney problems.

 

Edit: As I was typing this, we passed a double-trailer truck packed with boxes of romaine, going to market. It's harvest season near Yuma. I can't imagine what this will do to the farmers' Thanksgivings. CDC says so far they don't know the source of the contamination.

The first recall I am posting regarding prepared salads is a new recall:

"Recall issued for pre-packaged salads"

Quote

Several varieties of prepackaged salads are being recalled due to the possibility of Listeria, the Food and Drug Administration said. 

Apio, Inc. of Guadalupe, California is voluntarily recalling five varieties of Eat Smart Single-Serve Salad Shake Ups with a "Best Before" date of Dec. 14 after a random sample tested positive for Listeria Monocytogenes. 

The company said it is recalling all products produced on the same production line on the same day as that sample out of precaution. 

The salads were distributed in Florida, Arizona, California, Colorado, Kansas, Iowa, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington.

The article lists the specific products being recalled. Though at this point...the salad has passed its "Best Before" date so if you still have it in your refrigerator, you're not going to eat that, are you? :wacko: 

 

 

The second recall in the news is regarding the recent romaine lettuce recall. A farm which may have been a source of the contaminated lettuce has issued a wider recall of its produce:

"The Farm Connected To The Romaine E.Coli Outbreak Is Now Recalling Its Cauliflower"

Quote

The California farm at least partially responsible for the most recent romaine e.coli scare is now recalling its cauliflower, as well as its red- and green-leaf lettuce, USA Today reports.

The Adam Bros. Farms of Santa Maria, CA, were identified publicly for the first time by the FDA last Thursday...

The potentially affected cauliflower was harvested in California from November 27 through 30 and shipped to wholesalers across Arizona, California, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, as well as to Canada and Mexico. The lettuces went out to California, Colorado, Texas, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Canada.

I had second thoughts after I ordered an absolutely gorgeous salad with mandarin orange segments, sliced strawberries, toasted pecan halves, and grilled chicken yesterday for lunch. Didn't eat much of the lettuce, and have felt OK today.
