About Cold Chain Food Safety:
To maintain food safety, an unbroken “cold chain” is required between the production, transport, storage and distribution stages of all temperature-sensitive foods. Successful cold chain management depends on keeping foods cool enough to prevent bacterial growth that can lead to food poisoning.

Foods not kept at or below 40°F. (about 4°C.) can spoil quickly by allowing foodborne microorganisms to grow uncontrolled. Spoiled food may not look or smell rotten so these senses are generally thought of as being unreliable to judge the safety of a particular food item. If you doubt the safety of any food, do not consume it.

About Mustard Allergies:
For some people, mustard (and mustard-containing products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to foods containing mustard 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.
