Congressional duo continues push for switch to single food safety agency

By News Desk on Jun 21, 2019 12:07 am Describing the US food safety system as “hopelessly fragmented and outdated,” a congresswoman is pushing for the creation of a single federal agency to secure the nation’s food supply. Currently the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture each have jurisdiction over food, with the FDA responsible for everything except meat, poultry

Amos Miller’s Organic Farm ( Amish godly ‘ practice’s” not above the laws )

Amos Miller and Miller’s Organic Farm must appear before U.S. Magistrate Judge Marilyn Heffley on July 18 for a settlement conference about whether the operation is subject to federal food safety laws, according to court documents.

Miller and Miller’s Organic Farm, based in Bird-in-Hand, PA, were named on April 4 as defendants in a 97-page civil complaint by the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Miller is accused of selling meat and poultry products — which are misbranded and have not been federally inspected — to consumers throughout the United States.

The civil action is the latest attempt by USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) to get the man called an “ethical Amish farmer” on his Gofundme page to comply with some of the federal government’s primary food safety laws and regulations.

Miller responded to the lengthy complaint with a one-page hand-written statement on April 26.

“Defendants Answer the Complaint as Follows: We do not have legal counsel yet. We are looking for representation. We reserve the right to amend this answer after counsel is retained. The defendants deny all allegations in the complaint and ask the court to dismiss this action,” Miller’s letter to the court says. Miller continues to represent himself and Miller’s Organic Farm in the matter.

U.S. District Court Judge Edward G. Smith did not dismiss the case, nor did he grant Miller’s request for a continuance before the initial pretrial conference on June 13.

U.S. Attorney William M. McSwain in April said that his office filed the civil lawsuit to enjoin Miller and Miller’s Organic Farm “from continuing to violate federal food safety laws.” Assistant U.S. Attorney Gerald Sullivan is pursuing this case on behalf of the United States.

Salmonella Count Skyrockets - Backyard Flocks Dangerous

6/13/2019 - The number of people confirmed with Salmonella infections from backyard poultry flocks has increased more than 400 percent since May 10, with a third of the sick people younger than 5 years old.  

In an update this afternoon, the CDC reported that as of June 7 there were 279 people across 41 states who have been infected. In a previous update posted May 16, the agency said that as of May 10 it had received reports on a total of 52 people across 21 states who had been sickened in multiple multistate outbreaks this year.

Of the 152 patients for whom the information is available, more than a fourth had to be admitted to hospitals because their symptoms were so severe, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. No confirmed deaths have been reported. 

“(Whole genome sequencing) WGS analysis of 24 isolates from ill people predicted antibiotic resistance to amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, ampicillin, cefoxitin, ceftriaxone, fosfomycin, gentamicin, kanamycin, streptomycin, sulfisoxazole, tetracycline, or trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.”

Victims told investigators they got chicks and ducklings for their backyard flocks from agricultural stores, websites, and hatcheries. People can become infected with pathogens such as Salmonella bacteria from touching poultry or their environment, according to the CDC. Birds carrying the bacteria can appear healthy and clean.

Diapers And Salmonella

County public health officials in Omaha, NE, have confirmed they are investigating a Salmonella outbreak at a daycare center, but they have not reported how many of the 100 children enrolled at the center are sick.

Health department spokesman Phil Rooney said it could be something as simple as employees not properly washing their hands after changing a child’s diaper and then handling or serving food.

The implicated Elite Childcare Academy location has closed until further notice for cleaning and employee training. The daycare center cannot reopen without permission from public health officials. 

The business operators sent a notice to parents and guardians of children enrolled at the daycare center asking that they complete a survey to help determine the source of the Salmonella.

Last Summer’s Outbreaks Turn Attention TO CYCLOSPORIASIS

It’s uncomfortable to talk about intestinal illness known as cyclosporiasis for many to think about because it’s caused by the microscopic parasite Cyclospora cayetanensis. And as recently as the late 1990s, Americans did not have to worry about it unless they traveled abroad. The world, however, changed in 1996 when Guatemalan-grown imported raspberries gave the Clyclospora parasites the ride they needed to cause a first of its kind cyclosporiasis outbreak across both the United States and Canada.

That first North American cyclosporiasis outbreak in 1996 “was an early warning to public health officials and produce industry that the international sourcing of produce means that infectious agents once thought of as only causing traveler’s diarrhea could now infect at home.”

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention did confirm 2,810 cyclosporiasis patients. That means there were likely thousands of additional people infected, but they were not verified.

Hometown Food Co… Recalls Pillsbury Flour  Multi-state E. coli outbreak
For the second time this year Hometown Food Co. is recalling some of its Pillsbury flour because of bacterial contamination. This time the pathogen is E. coli and the flour is from a mill linked to an outbreak.

The new recall includes more than 4,600 cases of Pillsbury “Best Bread” flour. Hometown Food shipped the implicated flour to retailers and distributors in 10 states. Federal officials are urging consumers to check their homes for the recalled flour, according to an outbreak update posted by the Food and Drug Administration.

Consumers should look for 5-pound bags of “Pillsbury Best Bread Flour” with a UPC number of 0 5150020031 5 and one of the following lot code and use-by combinations:

•  Lot Code: 8 342 with Use-By Date: JUN 08 2020   •  Lot Code: 8 343 with Use-By Date: JUN 09 2020 

The date codes are printed on the side of the package below the “Nutrition Facts Panel.” Hometown Food’s recall notice says the company shipped the flour to retailers and distributors in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. 

Hometown Food initiated the recall amidst an eight-state outbreak of E. coli O26. there are at least 17 people confirmed sick, according to an update this weekend by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Three of the patients have required hospitalization. As of June 15, no illnesses had been confirmed in connection to Pillsbury flour

ADM Milling Co. manufactured the recalled Pillsbury flour at a mill in Buffalo, NY. The same plant was used to make Baker’s Corner brand flour that has been linked to the E. coli outbreak. ADM produced and packaged the Baker’s Corner flour for Aldi. 

6/13/2019 -  King Arthur is the second brand of flour, following Aldi’s Baker’s Corner, to be recalled in less than a month because of E. coli contamination in flour from Archer Daniels Midland Co. King Arthur Flour Inc. distributed its recalled flour nationwide.

People in eight states have been confirmed with infections from E. coli O26, according to an update posted today by the Food and Drug Administration. Three of the 17 patients have required hospitalization. No illnesses had been directly linked to the King Arthur brand flour as of the posting of the recall today. 

6/10/2019 - Seventeen people are sick with E. coli infections and three have been hospitalized in an outbreak traced to flour recalled yesterday by the Aldi grocery chain.

The Rhode Island Department of Health has isolated the outbreak strain of E. coli O26 in an unopened bag of Baker’s Corner all-purpose flour. Aldi recalled some 5-pound bags of the flour this week after the state officials informed company officials about finding the pathogen. That was before federal officials announced the outbreak.The flour was produced and packaged for Aldi by ADM Milling Co., which is a subsidiary of the Archer Daniels Midland Co.

The flour may have been used to produce Aldi baking mixes. Some of the outbreak patients reported tasting raw batter made from such mixes in the days before becoming ill.   Consumers should not use or eat flour from 5-pound bags of Baker’s Corner all purpose flour packed for Aldi, including all lot codes and all best-by dates.

On an undisclosed date, the Rhode Island Department of Health collected and analyzed an unopened sample of the flour and determined it contained E. coli O26. The department issued a public warning Wednesday to consumers not to eat the flour.

Mushrooms Picked By Asian Immigrants

Immigrants face higher risks for poisoning from foraging wild foods on May 31, 2019  A recent mushroom poisoning case in Minnesota illustrates how people who set out to gather nature’s bounty can find themselves carrying home a basket of toxins, especially if they are not well versed in local species.

Following a mushroom hunting walk in Minnesota in October 2018, a forager suddenly fell ill and went into respiratory failure. The fight of his life began a couple of hours after eating mushrooms he had gathered near his workplace.

“He said this was the first time he had picked mushrooms since arriving in Minnesota in 2015 and that he had selected the mushrooms because they resembled the Ochre mushroom — Amanita hemibapha var. ochracea — from his native Burma,” according to a report published in the CDC’s Mortality and Morbidity Weekly Report. 
The particular species the man and his daughter ate — Amanita muscaria var. guessowii — can contain ibotenic acid and muscimol. In general, the species can cause gastrointestinal symptoms. 

Specifically, ibotenic acid can cause central nervous system symptoms including hallucinations, agitation or seizures. Musimol causes central nervous system depression, which can lead to a variety of complications, including respiratory failure.

Almost 35 Tons Of Catfish Recalled

J Deluca Fish Company Inc., doing business as Nautilus Seafood, is the second California based seafood importer this week to recall thousands of pounds of Siluriformes, also known as catfish, that was not presented for import re-inspection into the United States, according to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

According to the recall notice, the recalled 69,590 pounds of Nautilus brand catfish was produced at a Vietnamese establishment that was not eligible to export Siluriformes to the United States. The frozen Siluriformes products, specifically yellow walking fish, were distributed to retail locations nationwide. The recall notice says the fish products were imported from Vietnam to the United States on various dates from August 2018 to January 2019.

The problem was discovered on May 22 during routine FSIS surveillance activities of imported products.  “FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers or refrigerators or both,” according to the recall notice. 

Recall Of 95,000  Pounds Of Johnsonville Smoked Sausage

The iconic Johnsonville company has initiated an international recall of some of its smoked sausage after a consumer complained about finding hard, green plastic in some jalapeño cheddar smoked sausage.

More than 95,000 pounds of the smoked sausage, all produced and packaged on March 12, are subject to the recall. The 14-ounce packages have a best-by date of June 9 printed on the back. The sausage packages also have the establishment number “EST. 34224” printed inside the USDA mark of inspection on their labels.  

“Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.”

Perdue Recalls Chicken Nuggets About Bones

An unspecified number of complaints to Perdue Foods LLC and the federal government have led to the company recalling almost 16 tons of chicken nuggets, tenders and strips. Consumers reported finding pieces of bone in the products.

Purdue distributed the 31,703 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products to retailers nationwide. Some of the products are distributed frozen, others are refrigerated. Some are in consumer-sized packages, others are in bulk boxes.

Simply Smart Organics branded consumer packages and Chef Quik brand bulk boxes are included in the recall, according to the recall posted by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

“FSIS is concerned that some product may be consumers’ freezers,” the recall says. “Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.”


FDA - Frozen Berries Contaminated With  Hep-A, Kroger, Others

Federal officials issued a public alert tonight warning about frozen berries that have tested positive for hepatitis A contamination. Private Selection brand berries sold at Kroger stores and other retailers are consequently under recall. The FDA alert applies to all Private Selection brand frozen fruit.

Laboratory tests conducted as part of an ongoing special project revealed the contamination, according to the public alert from the Food and Drug Administration. The agency didn’t report how many packages or pounds of the frozen berries were distributed. The Kroger Co. recall notice says the implicated berries were “manufactured” by Townsend Farms. 

“The FDA is advising consumers not to eat and to throw away frozen fruit purchased from Kroger and other retail locations packaged under Kroger’s ‘Private Selection’ brand,” according to the FDA alert.

As of the posting of the alert this evening, neither the FDA nor the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had received notice of any confirmed hepatitis A illnesses in connection with the implicated fruit. However, it can take up to 50 days after exposure for symptoms of hepatitis A infection to develop. Some people don’t develop symptoms, but they are carriers of the virus and can infect others.

Whole Foods Market Recalls Pesto 

A consumer has reported an allergic reaction to “made-in-house” pesto sauce sold in Whole Foods Market stores in North America. The grocery chain has recalled two products in five states as a result.

The chain is recalling “specialty made-in-house basil pesto” and “specialty made-in-house sundried tomato pesto” because the products may contain undeclared milk and tree nuts, specifically walnuts and pine nuts. The company’s recall notice has been posted by the Food and Drug Administration. Consumers are urged to check their homes for the implicated sauces.

“People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to these allergens run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products,” the recall states. “Customers who purchased this product at Whole Foods Market can bring a valid receipt into stores for a full refund.”

Anyone who has Whole Foods made-in-house basil or sun dried tomato pesto in their homes that is no longer in the original container should exercise caution if they cannot determine if it is subject to the recall.

Costco’s Kirkland Berries for Hepatitis A 
Frozen berries packaged under Costco’s signature Kirkland brand are now part of a nationwide recall that began when government testing found hepatitis A contamination in frozen blackberries that are used in multiple products from Townsend Farms Inc.

Costco sold the recalled frozen berries in stores in San Diego, Los Angles, and in Hawaii, according to the Townsend Farms recall notice posted by the Food and Drug Administration. The recall notice urges consumers to check their homes for the berries.

“Members who have purchased the product should not consume it. Instead, photograph the product bag for your records, dispose of the product and contact your local Costco for a full refund,” the recall notice states.

Kroger Co. distributed similar products to stores nationwide. It has already recalled three frozen berry products that are packaged under its Private Selection brand. Kroger sent the berries to its banner stores and its stores operating under 26 other names. (See store list here.)

The FDA has not released any information about whether Townsend used the implicated blackberries in products for its other customers.

Townsend’s recall of Costco’s Kirkland brand products only involves 4-pound bags of frozen berries labeled as “Three Berry Blend” and marked with best-by dates between Feb. 16, 2020, and May 4, 2020.

Consumers can identify the recalled Costco Kirkland multi-berry product by looking for the following best-by codes located in the white box on the back of the product bags
