Contaminated tomatoes lead to recall of ready-to-eat salads

by Administrator 6. May 2011 01:08

Read-to-eat salads sold at Safeways and Walmarts across Arizona were recently recalled due to the salads containing grape tomatoes that were found to be contaminated with the Salmonella bacteria.

The tomatoes were supplied by Six L's, which then notified the distributors of the tomatoes, Taylor Farms Pacific, that the tomatoes were contaminated. The FDA, along with Taylor Farms Pacific, announced the recall of the tomatoes and the read-to-eat salads containing them on Monday.

The Salmonella bacteria, if consumed, can cause diarrhea, cramps, and fever. The elderly and infants are particularly vulnerable to the effects of Salmonella, which can be life-threatening.

Consumers are advised to throw out any contaminated items and can find the full list of recalled items on the FSIS website, which routinely lists products that have been recalled.

If you or someone you love has suffered an illness after consuming a contaminated product, please contact the Phoenix toxic food product lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman, & McAnally, P.L.C., at 800-763-0964.

10,000 fruit pops recalled for fear of typhoid fever

by Administrator 30. August 2010 06:26

According to the Federal Drug Administration, Fruiti Pops Inc, of Sante Fe Springs has recalled 10,000 Mamey fruit bars due to fear of typhoid fever.

Several cases of typhoid have been reported this month, although it is rare in the U.S. Many of these cases have been associated with the Mamey frozen pulp sold by Goya Foods, Inc. Typhoid fever causes fever and severe abdominal pain and can be fatal in a small number of cases.

Mamey is tropical fruit that is grown in Central and South America and is used in the mamey-flavored fruit bars. The product was sold in Arizona, California, Texas in retail stores, ice cream trucks and other vending machines. Consumers are urged not to eat the fruit bar and to return to the place they bought it for a refund.

If you or a loved one has become ill after eating a defective product, contact the Phoenix toxic food products lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally P.L.C by calling 800-763-0964 today.
