Three Other FDA Recalls You Haven't Heard About
Among the offending items: potentially salmonella-infested products including alfalfa sprouts in Brooklyn, raw pistachios in Eugene, and pet treats in Amarillo. There were even a couple recalls (aside from the egg fiasco) this week that affect Arizona. So we thought we'd share.
1. Montalvan's Sales, Inc. of Ontario, California, pulled "La Nuestra" brand frozen mamey pulp off shelves in many states this week -- including Arizona! -- due to a potential health risk from, get this, Salmonella Typhi.
Okay, people, that's not the garden-variety salmonella afflicting the eggs. It's the kind that causes Typhoid Fever. To be honest, we weren't planning on trying mamey pulp anytime soon, but still, glad to have this information.
(More recalls after the jump)
2. If you've got a milk allergy, you'll want to chuck any Milton's Whole Grain Bread with an expiration date of August 26 or earlier. (Or spend more than what you paid for it in gas, we're betting, to get back to the store to fetch your refund.) Oopsie, the Carlsbad, California-based company failed to include milk on the packages of between 5,000 and 10,000 loaves of its bread sold in several states, including Arizona. The FDA has all the details.
As for us, we're going back to reading the surprisingly entertaining -- and appetite-suppressing -- recall press releases.
