Public Health Alert for Foster Farms Chicken [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Washington:201405 - USDA Logo small The Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issues a Public Health Alert due to concerns that illness caused by strains of Salmonella Heidelberg are associated with Raw Chicken Products produced by Foster Farms at three facilities in California. USDA: http://ht.ly/pAI7H

Direct link: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/home/!ut/p/a1/04_Sj9CPykssy0xPLMnMz0vMAfGjzOINAg3MDC2dDbwsfDxdDDz9AtyMgnyMDf3dDIAKIkEKcABHA0L6w_WjUJX4Wxq6AZWEBfp7OzsbWPgZwxTgtqIgN8Ig01FREQBCfym8/?1dmy&page=gov.usda.fsis.internet.topics&urile=wcm%3apath%3a%2FFSIS-Content%2Finternet%2Fmain%2Fnewsroom%2Fnews-releases-statements-and-transcripts%2Fnews-release-archives-by-year%2Farchive%2F2013%2Fpha-100713
Additional information:

The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports following Chicken Products are subject to this recall:

  • Raw Chicken Products from three Foster Farms facilities in question bear one of the establishment numbers inside a USDA mark of inspection or elsewhere on the package:
    • P6137
    • P6137A
    • P7632

The products were mainly distributed to retail outlets in California, Oregon and Washington state.

According to the USDA, this Public Health Alert is being issued after an estimated 278 illnesses were recently reported in 18 states, predominantly in California. This outbreak is continuing. The investigations indicate that consumption of Foster Farms brand Chicken and other brands of Chicken produced at Foster Farms plants are the likely source of this outbreak of Salmonella Heidelberg infections.

Illnesses were linked to Foster Farms brand Chicken through epidemiologic, laboratory and traceback investigations conducted by local, state and federal officials. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) is partnering with state health departments to monitor the outbreak while FSIS continues its investigation.

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 in North America. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) estimates more than 3,300 Americans may get Salmonellosis every day.

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.

Foster Farms Chicken Breast Strip Recall [US]

United States FlagUS/Washington: 201405 - USDA Logo smallFoster Farms recalls approximately 6,165 pounds of ready-to-eat (“RTE”) Grilled Chicken Breast Strips due to undeclared soy and wheat, both known allergens. USDA: http://ht.ly/lp5JE

Direct link: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/News_&_Events/Recall_036_2013_Release/index.asp

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

  • 4.5 pound cases containing 12 – 6 ounce trays of “Foster Farms Grilled Chicken Breast Strips Boneless & Skinless With Rib Meat 97% Fat Free”, with an identifying case code of “000606”

According to the USDA, the recalled Grilled Chicken Breast Strips bear the establishment number “P-20923” inside the USDA mark of inspection and a Use-By Date of “JUN 22 2013” printed on each tray. The recalled Chicken Strips were produced on April 23, 2013 and was distributed to retail establishments in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington.

About Soy and Wheat Allergies:
For some people, foods made from soy and wheat ingredients pose serious and potentially life-threatening conditions. Worse still, it may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from either of these food products. Many foods, for example, have soy-based ingredients including edamame (soybeans in pods), hydrolyzed soy protein, miso, soy protein isolate, soy sauce, tamari, tempeh, teriyaki sauce, textured vegetable protein (“TVP”) and tofu. In addition, lax labeling laws in many countries allow manufacturers to use (but not declare) small amounts of soy in “artificial flavoring”, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, vegetable broth and others.

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 soy 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.
