Baby Carrot recall
This just showed up on the Hav Health Forum....I know some of you feed baby carrots as treats.
Sweet baby carrots recalled in six states
WASHINGTON, Aug. 23 (UPI) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration cited possible contamination for the reason for the recall of sweet baby carrots produced by the Los Angeles Salad Co.
FDA officials said the carrots might be contaminated with bacteria (Shigella) that poses a serious health risk from some people, especially the very young or elderly.
The product was sold under two labels -- "Los Angeles Salad Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots" and "Trader Joe's Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots."
The "Los Angeles Salad Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots" label was distributed by Kroger Co. and King Sooper stores in Tennessee, Kroger Co. and Ralph's supermarkets in California, Publix supermarkets in Georgia and Florida, and Get Fresh stores in Nevada.
All of the packages were sold in flexible plastic bags in 7- and 8-ounce sizes with a "sell by date" up to and including Aug. 16.
The second label -- "Trader Joe's Genuine Sweet Baby Carrots" -- was distributed by Trader Joe's stores in Arizona and California in 7-ounce flexible plastic bags with a "sell by date" up to and including Aug. 8.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered the same product sold in Canada was contaminated with Shigella.
