Congressional and Public Affairs
WASHINGTON, October 1, 2011 - Greencore USA, Inc., a Cincinnati, Ohio, establishment, is recalling approximately 57 pounds of salad products containing meat and poultry, because the grape tomatoes used in these products may be contaminated with Salmonella, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The products subject to recall include: [View Labels (PDF Only)]
Fresh Ground Turkey Chubs
Each package bears a label with the establishment number "P38518" inside the USDA mark of inspection and the enjoy-by date as noted above. The products subject to recall were produced on Sept. 26 and Sept. 28, 2011, and were distributed to retail stores in Ill., Ind., Ky., Ohio and Tenn. When available, trhe retail distribution list(s) will be posted on FSIS’ website at www.fsis.usda.gov/FSIS_Recalls/
The problem was discovered when Greencore USA, Inc. was notified by its grape tomato supplier, Pearson Foods, that a specific lot of grape tomatoes was being recalled due to potential Salmonella contamination. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the recall of grape tomatoes on Sept. 28, 2011. FSIS and the company are not aware of any illnesses in association with the recalled salad products.
Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. Salmonella infections can be life-threatening, especially to those with weak immune systems, such as infants, the elderly, and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy. The most common manifestations of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 6 to 72 hours. Additional symptoms may be chills, headache, nausea and vomiting that can last up to seven days. The outbreak strain of Salmonella Heidelberg is resistant to several commonly prescribed antibiotics; this antibiotic resistance may be associated with an increased risk of hospitalization or possible treatment failure in infected individuals.
Members of the media with questions about the recall should contact the company’s CEO, Liam McClennon, at (978) 462-3663 ext. 313. Consumers with questions regarding the recall should contact the company’s Technical Manager, Mary Young, at (513) 377-0715.
Consumers with food safety questions can "Ask Karen," the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day.
