FDA’s Enforcement Actions For Last Week

The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) Enforcement Report for last week included some things that you might expect, including more reports on the recalls of peanut products with possible Salmonella contamination from the now defunct Peanut Corporation of America.

However, it also included some things we had forgotten about, like the canning products recalled by Michigan’s New Era Co. for possible botulism poisoning that was going on early in the year. Then there was Torres Hillsdale Country Cheese in Reading, MI recalling all that cheese.

Here’s the rundown on FDA Class I recalls and field corrections of food items for last week:

RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER


New Era Canning Co., New Era, MI, by press release, telephone and letter beginning on February 7, 2009. Firm initiated recall is complete.

REASON


Solid pack pumpkin is not likely to support the growth and toxin formation by Clostridium botulinum; however, if the can has loose seams, it may become contaminated post-processing with spoilage organisms that are not likely to pose a hazard to health.
