About Listeria Poisoning:
The bacteria that cause Listeriosis (Listeria poisoning) most often produce a gastrointestinal illness that can be quite serious or even fatal. Listeriosis in pregnancy, for example, may cause a miscarriage or fetal death. In other cases, people can develop Septicemia (a serious blood infection) or Meningitis (an inflammation of the covering of the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges).

If you suspect your food is contaminated, do not eat it. Contact the retailer for a refund or replacement. Wash your hands, contaminated preparation surfaces, cutlery and serving dishes thoroughly with hot soapy water and dry. Contact your MD immediately if you experience Listeriosis symptoms.

Formosa Pork Jerky Recall [US]

US/Washington: Formosa Food Company recalls approximately 1,133 pounds of Pork Jerky due to undeclared wheat, a known allergen. USDA: http://ht.ly/jYhbQ

Direct link: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/News_&_Events/Recall_027_2013_Release/index.asp

Additional information:
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following product is subject to this recall:

  • Formosa Brand Pork Szu (Cooked Seasoned Dried Pork Product) 16-oz. individual packages

Additional information:
According to the USDA, the recalled Pork Jerky bears the establishment number or “EST. 2446” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label. The foodstuff was produced on various dates through November 29, 2012. There is no expiration date on the product. The product was distributed via Internet and direct sales nationwide.

About Wheat Allergies:
For some people, wheat (and wheat products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, wheat products may not “look” or “sound” like wheat. People with a wheat allergy would suspect products such as all breads, cakes, breakfast cereals, pasta, crackers, beer, soy sauce and even condiments, such as ketchup, as having wheat unless specifically declared otherwise.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to wheat or wheat ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call-9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.

About Salmonella Poisoning:
Salmonellosis (Salmonella poisoning) is a very common type of food poisoning caused by the Salmonella bacterium. Although there are thought to be over 2,000 different kinds of these bacteria, only a comparative few make humans sick. Salmonella serotype “Typhimurium” and Salmonella serotype “Enteritidis” are thought to the two most common types seen in human cases.

In young children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems, Salmonellosis may cause serious and sometimes deadly infections. Even in otherwise healthy people, Salmonellosis may cause high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. In rare cases, however, Salmonellosis can cause more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected Aneurysms) Endocarditis and Arthritis.

If you suspect your food is contaminated, do not eat it. Contact the retailer for a refund or replacement. Wash your hands, contaminated preparation surfaces, cutlery and serving dishes thoroughly with hot soapy water and dry. Contact your MD immediately if you experience Salmonellosis symptoms.
