What’s in Your Kitchen?  A Week in Recalls: Sausage, Salmon, Cereal, Chocolate Covered Cherries, Salsa Seasoning, and Chicken Salad.

Posted in Food Allergens,Food Safety,Our Blog,Outbreaks & Recalls on February 21, 2019

MakeFoodSafe.com would like to help you keep your family safe from unsafe foods.  Each week we bring together a list of the current recalls.  Putting recalled lots, UPC codes, and contact information for recalled products in one convenient place helps you evaluate the foods you eat, including the latest chicken salad recall.

Some recalls are issued due to undeclared allergens, which could cause serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if someone sensitive to the product consumes it.  Other recalls are issued due to contamination with harmful material such as plastic or metal. Some are due to other health risks such as contamination with a pathogenic bacteria.  Check back often and evaluate your fridge, pantry, and shopping list to make sure you can identify which foods to avoid.

Panola County Processing, LLC Recalls Smoked Sausage Due to Processing Deviation

Panola County Processing, LLC of Carthage, Texas issued a recall on February 11, 2019 for approximately 59 pounds of their smoked sausage products due to a processing deviation that could have led to underprocessing of products.

The recall was initiated after the deviation was discovered during verification activities performed by the establishment.

Affected product was produced on January 29, 2019 and bears the establishment number EST. 48219.  See table below for specific product information.

Smoked Alaska Seafoods, Inc Recalls Smoked Silver Salmon Due to Health Risk

Smoked Alaska Seafoods, Inc. of Wasilla, Arkansas issued a recall on February 15, 2019 for all jars and cans of their Smoked Silver Salmon due to potential contamination with the health risk, Clostridium botulinum.

Clostridium botulinum is a harmful bacteria that can cause life-threatening illness or even death.  Symptoms may include general weakness, dizziness, double-vision, and trouble with speaking or swallowing.  Difficulty in breathing, weakness of muscles, abdominal distension, and constipation can also be experienced with infection.  Seek medical attention immediately if you have any of these symptoms.

The recall was initiated after an independent audit paid for by Smoked Alaska Seafoods, Inc performed a review of the thermal processing records.  This review revealed the product did not receive the prescribed thermal process and was therefore under processed, leaving the product vulnerable to Clostridium botulinum contamination.

The recall only applies to the jars and cans of product and does not apply to the flexible retortable pouches.  Affected product was sold to distributors throughout the state of Alaska, primarily in gift stores in the Anchorage and Fairbanks area.  See table below for specific product information.

There have been no illnesses reported in connection with this recall.  Consumers are asked to not consume the product, even if it does not look or smell spoiled.

Lean Culinary Services, LLC of Hollywood, Florida issued a recall on February 19, 2019 for approximately 223 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken salad products due to potential contamination with the health risk, Listeria monocytogenes.
