Smuckers makes peanut butter? I've only seen their jelly.
Sorry for going off topic, but if this was mentioned in an ep of CSI, Nick or Grissom would be pissed.
Some of the hotels I have worked at usually have Smuckers single serving cups of peanut butter on the breakfast bar. But this recall only affects the jars.
Company Recalls Ground Beef Over E. Coli Concern
Dec 16, 2011 9:59 PM EST
A Nebraska meatpacker recalled more than 40,000 pounds of ground beef products distributed in 16 states after a test confirmed the presence of E. coli, the Agriculture Department said Friday.
The products were shipped to institutions and distributors in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Tyson Fresh Meats Inc. of Dakota City, Neb., recalled 10-pound chubs of chuck fine ground beef 80/20, packed in cases containing eight chubs.
USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement that the problem was discovered through routine monitoring that confirmed a positive result for E. coli. No reports of illness have been received.
E. coli is a bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and, in the most severe cases, kidney failure. The very young, the elderly and those with weak immune systems are the most susceptible.
FSIS advises all consumers to safely prepare raw meat products, including fresh and frozen, and only consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160 degrees.
The USDA referred consumer questions to the company at 866-328-3156.
Novartis Issues Recall on Excedrin, Buffrin
If you read it fast, it looks like NORVITIS. :lol:
I meant to post this the other day, but forgot. They've recalled expandable lunch bags (brand is CI) because the freezer pack that comes in them contains anti-freeze and is very dangerous. No kids have been reported as getting sick from them, so far. They're not only dangerous to kids, but also to pets. A dog got into one and died.
Here's the link to the story: Recalled lunch boxes.
Over 2,000 bottles of Aveeno Calming Baby Lotion has been recalled because it might contain too much bacteria that is similar to a staff infection. I can't find the article on HLN, but that's where they told about it.
Tuna linked to salmonella outbreak in 20 states
By WILL LESTER
WASHINGTON (AP) — A yellowfin tuna product used to make dishes like sushi and sashimi sold at restaurants and grocery stores has been linked with an outbreak of salmonella that has sickened more than 100 people in 20 states and the District of Columbia, federal health authorities said Friday.
The Food and Drug Administration said 116 illnesses have been reported, including 12 people who have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.
Moon Marine USA Corp. of Cupertino, Calif., also known as MMI, is voluntarily recalling 58,828 pounds of frozen raw yellowfin tuna. It was labeled as Nakaochi Scrape AA or AAA when it was sold to grocery stores and restaurants and is scraped off the fish bones and looks like a ground product.
The product is not available for sale to individual consumers but may have been used to make sushi, sashimi, ceviche and similar dishes available in restaurants and grocery stores. Many of the people who became ill reported eating raw tuna in sushi as "spicy tuna," the FDA said.
Reports of the foodborne illness caused by salmonella bareilly have mainly come from the Eastern Seaboard and South, though cases have been reported as far west as Missouri and Texas.
As of Friday, illness had been reported these states and the District of Columbia: Alabama (2), Arkansas (1), Connecticut (5), District of Columbia (2), Florida (1), As Georgia (5), Illinois (10), Louisiana (2), Maryland (11), Massachusetts (8), Mississippi (1), Missouri (2), New Jersey (7), New York (24), North Carolina (2), Pennsylvania (5), Rhode Island (5), South Carolina (3), Texas (3), Virginia (5), and Wisconsin (12).
The memo notes there is likely a 30-day lag time between when people become sick and when cases are reported to health officials.
The raw yellowfin tuna product may have passed through several distributors before reaching the restaurant and grocery market and may not be clearly labeled.
Previous outbreaks of salmonella bareilly have been linked to bean sprouts, which are grown in warm, damp conditions.
The most common symptoms of salmonella are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within eight to 72 hours of eating the contaminated food. The illness can be severe or even life-threatening for infants, older people, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems.
The FDA recommended that people be cautious about eating raw seafood, inquire about the source and "when in doubt, don't eat it."
