"Publix recalls deli popcorn chicken over 'foreign material' concerns"

Quote

A popular grocery chain has issued a recall for its deli popcorn chicken over concerns that it may be contaminated with “foreign material.” Publix Super Markets has issued the recall for products sold in Florida, parts of Georgia, southern and coastal areas of South Carolina and southern Alabama.

According to an alert posted to Publix’ website, the voluntary recall involves popcorn chicken sourced from Pilgrim’s Pride, which is "doing business as Pierce Chicken." The products were sold between Jan. 17-31, and was found in both the hot and refrigerated cases.

 

And for any eGer's in Europe:

"Beef scare: Polish bad meat spreads to 11 EU states"

Quote

Eleven EU countries have imported beef from a Polish abattoir accused of handling sick cows, and urgent checks are now under way, EU officials say.

Poland has identified 9.5 tonnes of beef from the plant, now closed down, 2.5 tonnes of which was exported.

"Withdrawal and destruction of the meat is ongoing," the EU Commission said.

Is it just me or don't there seem to be a lot of "contamination" recalls happening lately? I guess it's better they find them to report than for us to find out on our own.

Has anyone alluded to where all this rubber is coming from?

In the US, there is a limit on how much mouse droppings are allowed in our food.  That fact has always skeeved me out.

People in 19 states infected with brucellosis after drinking raw milk

Quote

Although it’s illegal to sell unpasteurized milk across state lines, federal officials say people in 19 states have been infected with drug-resistant brucella after consuming raw milk from Miller’s Biodiversity Farm in Pennsylvania.

In a nationwide food safety alert, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned that anyone who has consumed raw dairy products from the farm in the past three years should check in with their doctors. The outbreak strain of Brucella — RB51 — is resistant to rifampin, one of the antibiotics that is typically be used to prevent or treat brucellosis.

The CDC and state officials are urging consumers to throw away any raw dairy products from Miller’s Biodiversity Farm that they have in their homes.  

“People who consumed raw milk or raw milk products from this dairy farm since January 2016 may have been exposed and should talk to their doctor,” according to the CDC food safety alert.

There is an even more immediate health threat to people who have had unpasteurized, raw dairy products from Miller’s Biodiversity Farm in Quarryville, PA, in recent months. Even if they haven’t developed symptoms of Brucella infection, they should immediately seek medical attention, according to the CDC. [....]

 

Emphasis is mine. More reading at the above link.

This one actually stood a chance of affecting me, because I buy this particular sweet kale salad occasionally. Listeria monocytogenes is the culprit, and it's possibly national (Canada).

Thanks CD.  Are you taking on this task of reporting food recalls for Canada as Toliver does for the USA?  If so, many thanks.

I'm attempting to, with the caveats that a) I may not always remember; b) I'm sometimes traveling between provinces and won't always do so in a timely fashion; and c) I'll probably post only the pathogen-related ones rather than the allergy-related ones.

"Green beans, butternut squash recalled for listeria risk in 9 states; Walmart affected"

Quote

Bagged green beans and butternut squash shipped to nine states – and retailers including Walmart – are being recalled for the potential risk of listeria contamination...
Most of the Marketside bagged green beans (12-ounce and 32-ounce sizes) and butternut squash cubes (16 ounces) were caught before being shipped. But about 200 cases, with an average of five bags per case, shipped Feb. 17 to one retail distribution center, the company says.
That product may have reached stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. Walmart, on its website, is listing the product as having been sold at some select stores.

See the article for specific bag info/codes.
