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.

Contaminated foods, especially “protein foods” such as shellfish, raw meat, poultry and eggs that have not been properly cooked, are the most common source of Salmonellosis. Not washing fresh fruits and vegetables before eating them, as well as not thoroughly cleaning work surfaces (including cutting boards, counter tops and cutlery) used to prepare raw meat and other foods in the kitchen can also cause Salmonella poisoning. Food can also be contaminated by food handlers who do not thoroughly wash their hands with lots of soap and hot water after handling raw meat or visiting the bathroom.

Salmonella can be found in the faeces of many animals, especially those with diarrhoea. Exotic pets, such as snakes, turtles and reptiles, may carry Salmonella even when healthy. People, especially children, can become infected if they do not wash their hands after contact with these exotic animals or eat while playing their pets.

In young children, the elderly, people with compromised immune systems and those undergoing some Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, 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 diarrhoea. 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.

Yoder’s Country Market Honey Roasted Peanut Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: Yoder’s Country Market recalls some Honey Roasted Peanuts due to undeclared milk and wheat hazard. FDA: http://ht.ly/pPQcY

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm371002.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Foods are subject to this recall:

  • Yoder’s Country Market Honey Roasted Peanuts sold in custom gift boxes containing 11-ounce bags of Peanuts and distributed in December 2012.

About Milk and Wheat Allergies:
For some people, milk (and milk products) and wheat (and wheat products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, milk products may not “look” or “sound” as if they are derived from milk. Some examples of foods with milk proteins include artificial butter or cheese flavor; casein or caseinates; curds; ghee; hydrolysates; lactalbumin and lactalbumin phosphate; lactose, lactoglobulin, lactoferrin and lactulose; and finally, rennet (originally, ground calves’ stomach but more often now, by-products of genetically engineered bacteria, mold or yeast).

Likewise, wheat (and wheat products) can also be 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 should suspect products including 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 milk 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.

Please note: a person allergic to one type of food or other substance may also be allergic to others. Multiple undeclared allergens may compound symptoms in susceptible persons. Seek immediate medical care if you suspect you or someone else is suffering from Anaphylactic Shock.

You can learn more about food allergies from the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) at http://1.usa.gov/IZWUlm.
