On October 13, 2017, Relish Foods, Inc of Culver City, California voluntarily initiated the recall of Frozen Newport Brand Tuna Loins. The recall was the result of sampling by FDA which revealed that the product has potential to contain the bacteria Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. Relish Foods Inc is continuing the investigation with FDA as to what caused the problem.

Product was distributed in Washington, Oregon, Northern California, Nevada, Idaho, and Arizona states between 8/15/2017 and 9/25/2017, through food service operations, retail stores, and restaurants. Product was distributed as 5 to 8 pound, vacuum packed, frozen whole tuna loins packed in 30 pound Newport brand master cases. Master cases are labeled with the production lot codes of MTNT 0947C, MTNT 0957B, MTNT 0967A, and MTNT 0977D.

On the retail side this product would have been distributed to retailers Basha’s, Randall’s Fine Meats, Yokes Fresh Market, CalMart, Raley’s, Concord Produce Market, Bel Air Market and Speedy Market and Nob Hill.

Product was distributed to the following retail locations and may have been sold in an unbranded form:

Product from the recalled lots will have been displayed at their seafood departments where the product sold is likely to have been sold as steak loins or pieces of loins on a tray with clear plastic wrap cover. It may also have been sold out of the fresh case and wrapped in “butcher paper” to the customer’s order.

Consumers concerned about whether the tuna they purchased may contain the recalled tuna loin product should check with the store where they purchased the tuna. That store will be able to determine if it used the recalled product to prepare the tuna. At this time Relish Foods does not believe that the recalled product made with the recalled product is available for purchase by consumers.

Mann Packing of Salinas, California is voluntarily recalling minimally processed vegetable products listed below because they may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes. Mann Packing is issuing this recall in response to a single positive result found during random sampling by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Mann Packing is issuing this recall out of an abundance of caution. To date, public health officials have not reported any illnesses associated with these products.

The recalled product has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recalled products were distributed throughout the United States and Canada with “best if used by” dates from October 12 to October 20 listed on the front of the packaging. For recalled products distributed at retail and foodservice, product names, UPC codes and “best if used buy” dates are listed below.

Clair D. Thompson & Sons, Inc., a Jersey Shore, Pa. establishment, is recalling approximately 700 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The ground beef items were produced and packaged on Sept. 27 – 28, 2017 and Oct. 2, 2017. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 5-lb. plastic bags of “Thompson’s GROUND BEEF.”
  • 10-lb. plastic bags of “Thompson’s GROUND BEEF.”

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 9681” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to institutions in New York and Pennsylvania.

The problem was discovered on Oct. 2, 2017 when the firm notified FSIS that the firm’s sample of ground beef had tested positive for E. coli O157:H7 by a third party lab. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2–8 days (3–4 days, on average) after exposure the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.

FSIS and the company are concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them.

Greencore, USA, LLC is voluntarily recalling egg salad sandwiches, ham salad sandwiches, and seafood stuffing as listed below. The products are being recalled because Listeria monocytogenes was found in environmental sampling conducted by FDA.

No finished products have been found to have Listeria present and no confirmed illnesses have been reported.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Greencore is recalling lots distributed between September 24 and 27, 2017. Sandwiches were only distributed to American Food and Vending, Hannaford Brothers, Target, and Turkey Hill in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and New York. The “Use By Date” of sandwiches is listed on the back panel of the sandwich. In addition to fresh ready to eat sandwiches, Hannaford Brothers Seafood Stuffing is being recalled with Lot Codes between 10/2/2017 and 10/19/2017.

This public health notice was initiated after routine sampling by WSDA found salmonella in bottled organic retail raw milk collected from the Pride & Joy Dairy in Toppenish. The product has a best-by date of October 4 (OCT 4). WSDA and the company continue to investigate the source of the problem. Currently, there are no reported cases of human illnesses associated with this product.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in humans. Young children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems are especially at risk. Healthy persons infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. Anyone experiencing these symptoms should immediately contact a health care provider.

The company sells its products in pint, quart, half-gallon, and one-gallon plastic containers. This public health notice includes all container sizes.

King Soopers said today it has recalled its chicken salad sandwiches that are sold in King Soopers and City Market stores, located in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Wyoming. The product may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

No confirmed reports of illness or injury have been reported to date.  Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.

The chicken salad sandwich is the prepackaged 6.8 oz item sold in the deli department at King Soopers.  King Soopers has removed this item from store shelves and initiated its customer recall notification system that alerts customers who may have purchased recalled products through register receipt tape messages and phone calls.

King Soopers was notified on September 21st  by the manufacturer, Journey Cuisine, that the recalled product may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.  The company has ceased production and distribution of the product pending an investigation.

Salmonella:  Shore Lunch brand fish breading and batter mix is under nationwide recall in Canada because of possible Salmonella contamination.

No illnesses in Canada had been reported.

Two flavors of Shore Lunch brand breading and batter mix are included in the recall. Consumers and retailers should look for the following label information to determine if they have recalled product in their possession:

  • Shore Lunch “Fish Breading/Batter Mix – Cajun Style” in 255 gram packages with a product code of 1064828, a date code of 1/18/2018 and a UPC number of 0 24739 19363 5; and
  • Shore Lunch “Fish Breading/Batter Mix – Original Recipe” in 255 gram packages with a product code of 1064839, a date code of 1/17/2018 and a UPC number of 0 24739 19362 8.

Anyone who has eaten or handled any of the recalled mixes recently and developed symptoms of Salmonella infection should seek medical attention and tell their doctors about the possible exposure to the pathogen.

Symptoms can include fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections.

Listeria:  The Danish public were placed on alert over the weekend after one person died and at least three others were taken ill after eating smoked salmon, thought to be affected with Listeria.

Stores and suppliers throughout Denmark are now recalling stocks to try to contain the outbreak. The Danish Authority said the salmon came from a single factory in Poland which has been supplying the country for some time.

Tests have shown that only two or three packets of smoked salmon were infected.

All the casualties are thought to be elderly, the age group most vulnerable to this type of food poisoning.

It can take up to three weeks from a person eating listeria infected food to symptoms of the illness starting to show up.

Listeria is a food borne infection usually found in chilled or cold stored products with a long shelf life that are eaten without additional heat treatment. Listeria can also spread to other foods stored in a refrigerator.
