Recall: Cumin spice

2/20/2015 11:45:00 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Hundreds of products are being pulled from store shelves after traces of peanut were found in cumin spice -- a life-threatening danger to people with peanut allergies.
The recall has been ongoing since December, as more retailers identify products that contain the cumin.
The Food and Drug Administration is now warning all people with peanut allergies to avoid cumin and products that contain cumin.
While such large allergy-related recalls are rare, undeclared allergens like peanuts are the leading cause of food recalls in the United States.
According to the group Food Allergy Research and Education, or FARE, 15 million Americans have food allergies, including 1 in 13 children.
Eight foods account for more than 90 percent of the allergies -- peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, wheat, soy, fish and shellfish.

Recall: Bidart Bros. apples

1/13/2015 9:23:00 AM

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the results of findings from additional tests performed on samples collected from Bidart Bros. apple processing plant. Test results confirm two strains of Listeria monocytogenes were found at the apple processing facility and are believed to be the same strains associated with the outbreak.
Given the findings from the latest test results, and out of an abundance of caution, the company has instituted a voluntary recall of all Bidart Bros. Granny Smith and Gala apples still available in the marketplace.
Consumers should not eat the Granny Smith and Gala apples being recalled by Bidart Bros. These apples can be sold under the brand names “Big B” and “Granny’s Best,” though, they could also be sold under other brand names or with no brand at all. Consumers who are buying or have recently bought Granny Smith or Gala apples should ask their retailers if the apples were supplied by Bidart Bros. Other varieties of apples and apples from other growers are not affected by the recall.
Consumers should avoid eating commercially produced, prepackaged whole caramel apples including those various brands and types containing nuts, sprinkles, chocolate & other toppings that were manufactured using Bidart Bros. apples. Consumers who are buying or have recently bought caramel apples should ask their retailer if the caramel apples were manufactured using recalled apples.
