Seafood, Sprouts Recalled For Contamination

khts_recallsSEAFOOD PRODUCTS

Frankly Fresh, Inc. of Carson, CA. is voluntarily recalling its seafood line of products, because it 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 shortterm symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Frankly Fresh has voluntarily ceased the production and distribution of these products as FDA and the company continue their investigation as to what caused the problem.

Consumers who have purchased Frankly Fresh Seafood Products are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company via email at we-care@franklyfresh.com and/or our hot line at 1-800-826-3322 MON-FRI from 9 to 5 Pacific Time.

SMOKED ROUNDSCAD

Arko Foods International of Los Angeles, CA is recalling Angelina Brand Smoked Roundscad, 8oz packs, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium which can cause life-threatening illness or death. Consumers are warned not to consume the product even if it does not look or smell spoiled.

Botulism, a potentially fatal form of food poisoning, can cause the following symptoms: general weakness, dizziness, double-vision and trouble with speaking or swallowing. Difficulty in breathing, weakness of other muscles, abdominal distension and constipation may also be common symptoms. People experiencing these problems should seek immediate medical attention.

Angelina Brand Smoked Roundscad was distributed in California, Nevada, Arizona, Washington, New York, Texas, Maryland, and Florida through retail stores, supermarkets, and wholesale distributors.

The product is in 8 oz bags with header indicating Angelina brand which were distributed to the market from 2009 to January 2011.

The product is imported from the Philippines and is uneviscerated. It may have the potential to cause Botulism. However, note that no illnesses have been reported to date.

Consumers who have purchased and who still has Angelina Brand Smoked Roundscad in stock are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers who have questions may contact the company at (323) 257-1888 from Monday to Friday at 9am to 6pm (Pacific Standard Time).

VEGETABLE SPROUTS

louiessproutsLouie Foods International of Fresno, California, is voluntarily recalling all Louie’s brand sprouts with a “Use By” date on or before 4/14/11, because they may be contaminated with Salmonella. To-date, no illnesses have been reported.

Products affected by the recall include:

Alfalfa Sprout Mix, 4 oz. cups (UPC 11324 04401)

Alfalfa Sprout Mix, 16 oz. bags (UPC 11324 16401)

Clover Sprouts, 4 oz. cups (UPC 11324 04406)

Clover Sprouts, 16 oz. bags (UPC 11324 04406)

Spicy Sprouts, 4 oz. cups (UPC 11325 04402)

Broccoli Sprouts, 4 oz. cups (UPC 11324 04407)

Salmonella is 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.

Products were sold to distributors located in the Central Valley and along the Coast of California. Within hours of being notified, Louie Foods International contacted all of its customers and advised them to destroy the affected products.

The contamination was detected during a random test conducted by the USDA, in a package of the alfalfa-clover sprouts. However, as a precautionary measure, Louie Foods International is recalling all sprout products produced during the same time period. Louie Foods International has temporarily ceased the production and distribution of the sprout products subject to this recall. The California Department of Public Health, FDA and Louie Foods International continue their investigation into the source of the problem.

Consumers are urged to destroy the above listed products or to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers may contact Jay Louie at Louie Foods International, 1-559-264-2745 for additional information.
