    Default Hartz recalls chicken jerky pet treats, too

    The Hartz Mountain Corp. is recalling some 20,000 packages of chicken jerky pet treats in the U.S. after the firm's internal tests found trace amounts of antibiotic residue, the same problem that led to earlier recalls by top suppliers.

    Hartz Chicken Chews and Hartz Oinkies Pig Skin Twists Wrapped with Chicken for dogs have been pulled voluntarily from retail shelves nationwide, according to the Secaucus, N.J., firm.

    Company officials said they conducted internal tests after New York state agriculture officials found evidence of antibiotic residue in treats produced by Nestle Purina PetCare Corp. and Del Monte Corp. Nestle withdrew Waggin' Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats and Del Monte pulled its Milo's Kitchen Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats from shelves nationwide.

    In addition, two more firms recalled their treats as well, including Publix stores, which recalled its private brand Chicken Tenders Dog Chew Treats and IMS Pet Industries Inc., which withdrew its Cadet Brand Chicken Jerky Treats sold in the U.S.

    Hartz officials said they found evidence of antibiotic residue in about a third of the treats they tested, but removed all the products as a precaution. They were not contacted by the New York officials, but they found the same unapproved drugs including sulfaclozine, tilmicosin, trimethoprim, enrofloxacin and sulfaquinoxaline.

    Four of the antibiotics are approved in China, where most of the treats are made, and in other countries, but not in the U.S. A fifth is allowed in the U.S., but in virtually undetectable amounts in finished products.

    There is no indication that the detection of antibiotic residue is related to an ongoing investigation into deaths and illnesses of dogs and cats linked to chicken jerky pet treats made in China, treat manufacturers and Food and Drug Administration officials agree. The trace antibiotic pose no health threat to pets or humans, FDA officials said.

    The agency is continuing to investigate what may be behind reports of 500 deaths and more than 2,700 illnesses in dogs and cats who consumed chicken jerky pet treats made in China.

    Sectors | Wed Apr 15, 2015 10:07pm IST Beech-Nut baby food recalled over fear of glass contamination

    NEW YORK, April 15








    (Reuters) - Federal food inspectors have announced the recall of 1,920 pounds of sweet potato and chicken baby food made by Beech-Nut Nutrition, saying it may be contaminated with small pieces of glass.


    The problem was discovered after Beech-Nut received a complaint from a consumer who found a small piece of glass in the product, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement on Tuesday.


    Beech-Nut, based in Amsterdam, N.Y., also learned of an oral injury associated with consumption of the product, it said.


    "Outside of this single report, we have no indication that any other jar of our Classics Stage 2 Sweet Potato & Chicken is affected, but as a company of parents and families we are acting with an abundance of caution," Beech-Nut said in a statement.


    The 4-oz. glass jars containing "Stage 2 Beech-Nut CLASSICS sweet potato & chicken" were produced on December 12, 2014.


    They bear the establishment number "P-68A" inside the USDA mark of inspection, show an expiration date of "DEC 2016" and include product numbers "12395750815" through "12395750821."


    Beech-Nut, which is owned by Swiss-based Hero Group, said it was encouraging customers to return the recalled product to the store where they purchased it for a refund or exchange.

    Update 4/22/15:

    Through a review of DNA data from listeriosis cases, federal health officials have identified two more patients who were affected by a Listeria monocytogenes outbreak linked to Blue Bell Creameries products, increasing the case count to 10.
    The two cases occurred in Arizona and Oklahoma, states not previously known to be affected by the outbreak, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced today. The outbreak also includes five cases in Kansas and three in Texas. All 10 patients were hospitalized, and 3 of the Kansas patients died.
    Illness-onset dates in the outbreak ranged from January 2010 through January 2015, the CDC said. Patients with illness onsets through 2014 were identified through a retrospective review of the PulseNet database for DNA fingerprints that were similar to isolates collected from Blue Bell ice cream samples.
    One more isolate from a listeriosis patient is still being tested to determine if the illness is related to the outbreak, the CDC said.
    Meanwhile, Blue Bell yesterday announced a recall of all of its products currently on the market, including ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet, and frozen snacks, because of potential Listeria contamination. Previously the company had recalled products made at its Broken Arrow, Okla., plant from Feb 12 to Mar 27, 2015.
    In a statement, the company said that it now has had several positive tests for Listeria in various places and plants. "We're committed to doing the 100 percent right thing, and the best way to do that is to take all of our products off the market until we can be confident that they are all safe," Paul Kruse, Blue Bell CEO and president, said in the statement.

    FDA Warning Letter: Tennessee Seafood Processor


    August 10, 2015

    T-Ho Foods Inc., a seafood processor in Powell, TN, was sent a July 22 warning letter from the New Orleans District Office of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that is very precise about rodent excreta.
    In a June 1-3, 2015, inspection of the T-Ho Tennessee facility, the letter stated that FDA inspectors found:

    • At least seven apparent rodent excreta pellets (aREPs) on the floor along the southeast wall of the warehouse behind the vending machine for drinks and adjacent to a pallet holding various packaging materials and plastic tubs of powdered meat bases.
    • At least 13 aREPs on and under a pallet covered with a piece of cardboard along the southeast wall of the warehouse, which was holding cases of glass jar packaging materials and several paper bags of bread crumbs.
    • At least three aREPs on a pallet and 35 aREPs on the floor adjacent to a pallet holding flour and bread crumbs. The pallet was located adjacent to the lift along the northwest wall of the warehouse.
    • At least five aREPs on the floor in the west corner and at least six aREPs on the floor along the southwest wall of the spice room on the second floor.
    • At least four aREPs on the floor in the storage area adjacent to the northeast entrance to the spice room on the second floor.

    FDA noted that plenty of rodent pellets had previously been found at the T-Ho facility in both June 2013 and January 2014 in areas where food ingredients and packing materials were stored.
    Among the warnings, T-Ho co-owners Thuc G. and Thoai Ho were told that they needed to take effective measures to exclude pests from these areas as good manufacturing practices require.

    FDA also found that T-Ho failed to properly store equipment and remove waste and litter, nor was its building being adequately maintained as a food processing facility, particularly involving preventing drip and condensation from contaminating food.

    Four of the 13 areas which FDA called to T-Hos attention as violations involve Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) regulations and half were repeat violations, including monitoring and failure to conduct hazard analysis for each kind of fish or fish product.

    FDA gave T-Ho 15 working days to respond.
