    Default Consumers are reminded not to eat uncooked dough or batter made with raw flour

    The recall into the Flour is expanding. Now it is warning about eating uncooked cookie dough.

    July 25, 2016

    Due to four new confirmed illnesses, General Mills is adding additional flour production dates to the previously announced U.S. retail flour recall that was originally announced on May 31, 2016. The illnesses reported to health officials continue to be connected with consumers reporting that they ate or handled uncooked dough or ate uncooked batter made with raw flour.

    The addition of new flour production dates is the result of General Mills conducting proactive flour testing and new information from health officials who are using new whole genome sequencing techniques to trace illnesses. E.coli (several sub-types) has been detected in a small number of General Mills flour samples and some have been linked to new patient illnesses that fell outside of the previously recalled dates.
    At this time, it is unknown if we are experiencing a higher prevalence of E.coli in flour than normal, if this is an issue isolated to General Millsí flour, or if this is an issue across the flour industry. The newer detection and genome sequencing tools are also possibly making a connection to flour that may have always existed at these levels.

    I saw this when it first came out, but I thought "Gel Spice" was not a very well known brand. Now it is updated to include additional brands.

    Update: Gel Spice, Inc. Issues Expanded Recall of Ground Tumeric Powder Due to Elevated Lead Levels

    August 5, 2016

    Gel Spice, Inc. is expanding its recall of ground turmeric powder to include additional brands because of elevated lead levels. Lead can accumulate in the body over time. Too much can cause health problems, including delayed mental and physical development and learning deficiencies. Pregnant women, infants and young children especially should avoid exposure to lead. People concerned about blood lead levels should contact their physician or health clinic to ask about testing.
    The additional products being recalled are identified in the table below.
    Brand/Description and Net Weight Lot/BB code UPC NUMBER
    Spice Select/8 oz 03/18/19 076114007730
    Market Pantry/0.95 oz 05APR2019 085239211038
    Gel/15 oz 04/18/19 076114800867
    Gel/15 oz 05/16/19 076114800867
    Clear Value /0.75oz 04/27/19 036800354920
    Lieber’s/2 oz 05/13/19 043427006361
    Spice Supreme/2 oz 05/17/19 076114364628

    The products were distributed by various retailers throughout the United States.
    Sampling and testing of another product, produced from the same bulk turmeric, revealed the elevated level of lead.
    No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
    Consumers who have purchased the ground turmeric powders identified above should discard the product.Consumers with questions about the recalled product may call (201) 564-0435 between the hours of 8 AM to 4 PM Eastern Time, Monday-Friday.

    Sam’s Club bakery supplier denies it is endangering consumers


    BY CORAL BEACH | AUGUST 19, 2016
    Orange Bakery Inc., whose customers include Whole Foods Market and Sam’s Club, this week denied claims in a federal civil case that allege the company stopped required food safety testing and has been forging third-party certifications for more than a year.
    The bakery company, based in Irvine, CA, has several facilities across the U.S. It supplies fresh and frozen baked goods and dough to retailers and distributors nationwide, including Rich Foods, US Foods Service and Sysco, according to the complaint. The latter two companies are the nation’s largest foodservice suppliers, with customers that include thousands of schools, restaurants, hotels, hospitals and other foodservice operations.

    3 brands of frozen corn recalled in 15 states because of Listeria

    A Pennsylvania company is recalling three brands of its frozen corn that were distributed to 15 states because a package sampled from a retail store tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.
    Cambridge Farms LLC of Lancaster, PA, has ceased the production and distribution of the frozen corn and is working with the Food and Drug Administration to find out what caused the problem, according to the recall notice posted early this evening.

    Three brands — Laura Lynn, Key Food and Better Valu — are included in the recall. There is concern that consumers may have the product in their home freezers because of its long shelf life, which reaches well into 2018.
    -snip-
    The recalled corn was distributed to 15 states: North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Maryland and Florida.

    How does lead manage to find it's way into spices ... or any other consumable for this matter?

    ICAPP Voluntarily Recalls Certain Lots of Frozen Strawberries


    For Immediate Release

    October 30, 2016

    The Bolding text below is mine.


    Announcement


    The International Company for Agricultural Production & Processing (ICAPP) is voluntarily recalling certain lots of its frozen strawberries out of an abundance of caution in response to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) investigation of an outbreak of Hepatitis A. For more information about this investigation, please visit FDA’s outbreak investigation website at http://www.fda.gov/Food/RecallsOutbr.../ucm518775.htm.
    The recalled products were all distributed for sale to and use in food service establishments nationwide -- not for use in food products offered for retail sale to consumers. Nonetheless, ICAPP is issuing this news release publicly to help mitigate any possible risk to the public health and to fully ensure that all recalled products are recovered. Although none of ICAPP’s own testing through an established surveillance program or through third party testing of retained samples has identified the presence of Hepatitis A in any of its products, ICAPP has decided to recall all frozen strawberries that it has imported into the United States since January 1, 2016 out of an abundance of caution.
    No other ICAPP products, frozen or fresh, are covered by this voluntary recall.
