FDA finds Salmonella in crackers amid recall flurry

first_imgJan 19, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – The company implicated in the national Salmonella outbreak has recalled more of its peanut products, some distributed beyond US borders, as Kellogg Corp. announced today that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has found the pathogen in one package of its peanut butter sandwich crackers.National peanut butter brands sold through retail stores have not been linked to the Salmonella outbreak, but the FDA has warned consumers to avoid any commercially made products containing peanut butter—such as crackers, cookies, and ice cream—and any peanut butter served in institutions such as schools and nursing homes until investigators determine more about the scope of the contamination.Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), based in Lynchburg, Va., said yesterday in a press release that it is expanding the recall of peanut butter made at its Blakely, Ga., facility and is voluntarily recalling peanut paste made at the same plant. The company said the peanut butter and peanut paste were distributed to institutions, food services industries, and private-label food companies in 24 states, the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, Korea, and Haiti.”In addition, affected product was used as an ingredient in other products that may have been distributed in other states,” the company said, emphasizing that none of its recalled peanut butter is sold to consumers through retail stores.The peanut butter and peanut paste involved in the expanded recall was made on or after Jul 1, 2008, at the Blakely, Ga., facility. The company said tests on environmental samples and a small number of unopened containers have yielded Salmonella, though the company did not say if the pathogen matched the national outbreak strain of Salmonella enterica serotype Typhimurium.The recall affects 200 lots of peanut butter and peanut paste as well as 52 lots of coarse natural paste, according to PCA.PCA is advising companies to segregate and hold the product and call PCA for further instructions.Meanwhile, Kellogg Corp. said in a press release today that Salmonella has been found in one package of its Austin peanut butter sandwich crackers, one of the brands the company has already recalled. The company did not indicate if the Salmonella found in the package of crackers matches the national outbreak strain.On Jan 14 customers and consumers were advised by the company to hold certain cracker brands pending more information from PCA. Two day later Kellogg recalled the products and said it has asked its salespeople and a retrieval company to remove the recalled products from store shelves.In other developments, more companies recalled products that may contain possibly tainted peanut butter or peanut paste supplied by PCA. The companies include:Ralcorp Frozen Bakery Products: Wal-Mart Bakery peanut butter cookies, peanut butter no-bake cookies, and peanut butter fudge no-bake cookies; Lofthouse brand peanut butter cookies, peanut butter no-bake cookies, and peanut butter fudge no-bake cookies; Parco Foods’ Chuck’s Chunky food service peanut butter cookies; Pastries Plus gourmet cookies; Food Lion Bake Shop peanut butter cookiesMeijer: cheese and peanut butter sandwich crackers, toasty peanut butter sandwich crackers, peanut butter and jelly ice cream, peanut butter cup ice creamGeneral Mills: Larabar peanut butter cookie flavor snack bars, JamFrakas Blisscrisp peanut butter flavor snack barsSo far the outbreak strain has been connected to 474 illnesses in 43 states, according to a Jan 17 update from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The outbreak may have played a role in 6 deaths, and 107 case-patients have been hospitalized.Agriculture officials in Georgia and Connecticut have isolated Salmonella in unopened 5-pound jars of King Nut peanut butter and are awaiting further test results to determine if the pathogen matches the outbreak strain. Earlier this month, public health officials in Minnesota found the outbreak strain in an open container of King Nut peanut butter, a bulk brand that is produced by PCA but is distributed to food service institutions by King Nut Corporation.See also:Jan 19 Kellogg press releaseJan 19 General Mills press releaseJan 18 CIDRAP News story “FDA warns not to eat selected peanut butter products”Jan 19 Meijer press releaseJan 18 Ralcorp Lofthouse press releaseJan 18 Ralcorp Wal-Mart product press releaseJan 18 Ralcorp Food Lion press releaseJan 17 CDC Salmonella outbreak updateJan 18 FDA outbreak updatelast_img read more

Moses is not Hughes’ main focus

first_img Hughes said: “We had a poor day on Wednesday, with a couple of breaks. Dionatan Teixeira got stood on and broke a bone in his foot, so he is going to be out for six to eight weeks I think. “Marko Arnautovic has broken his hand, but we’re hopeful the cast he has got is going to be okay for him and he will be allowed to play with it.” Teixeira has joined Robert Huth (calf), Glenn Whelan (broken leg) and Peter Odemwingie (knee) on the sidelines. Whelan was included in the Republic of Ireland squad announced last week and Hughes has emphasised that Stoke do not feel the midfielder is ready for action. Asked if Whelan had been withdrawn from the Ireland squad, Hughes said: “No, I don’t think so, but as a club we don’t think he is ready. “He is training with the physios and making good progress, but he has not joined in any training sessions with us and there is not a plan to do that. “Probably Ireland are within their rights to call him up to be assessed, but our view is that he is not ready – if we had a game this time next week, he wouldn’t be playing for us because it would be too much of a risk. “I’m sure Glenn will meet up with Ireland and then their FA will have to make the correct decision. “Our medical department have spoken to their doctor, giving updates. We haven’t tried to influence that decision as yet.” Meanwhile, Hughes is set to speak to referees’ chief Mike Riley next week about “observations” he has made in recent Stoke games. The Potters boss was critical of referee Chris Foy for taking taking no action over West Ham midfielder Alex Song’s rash-looking tackle on Stoke forward Mame Biram Diouf in the build-up to the visitors’ first goal during last weekend’s match. And in terms of speaking to Professional Game Match Officials Limited head Riley, Hughes said on Friday: “I think there are meetings planned for next week, just because we felt we had observations that we made as a club in certain games, and we just need a little bit of clarification. “We’re pleased they have accepted our invitation and we can have conversations early next week I think.” Press Association Asked for his thoughts about the situation at his press conference to preview Sunday’s Barclays Premier League clash at Tottenham, Hughes said of Nigeria international Moses: “He is absolutely right in saying that he is still a Chelsea player. “We are delighted with what he is producing and that was the key from everybody’s point of view – that he would come here, play games, and get back on track. “Chelsea wanted him to get his confidence levels up again. So as we stand here and now, I think everyone is winning. “But further than that, you can’t really comment. “He is certainly enjoying his time here, but his parent club have benefited as well and we are not at the point yet where we are going to have conversations about Victor’s future, because it is not the right time to do it.” Stoke have striker Peter Crouch and defenders Phil Bardsley and Marc Muniesa back available for Sunday’s game, while forward Marko Arnautovic remains in line to feature despite breaking his hand. Former Spurs man Crouch and Bardsley sat out the 2-2 home draw with West Ham last Saturday due to suspensions, while Muniesa was nursing an ankle problem. Although Arnautovic is not expected to be kept out by the injury he suffered in training earlier this week, the same cannot be said of defender Dionatan Teixeira, who broke his foot on the same day and is set to be out for six to eight weeks. Moses has shone in Hughes’ team since joining on a season-long loan from the Blues over the summer. But it was suggested this week that the 23-year-old winger currently views his long-term future as being with the London outfit, with him being quoted as saying on the matter: “I’m still a Chelsea player.” Stoke boss Mark Hughes has stressed now is not the right time for discussions with Chelsea about whether Victor Moses might stay with the Potters beyond his current loan deal. last_img read more
