Nearly 2 million lbs of chicken products recalled over salmonella risk

Aspen Foods, a division of fresh and frozen poultry product supplier Koch Poultry Company, is recalling nearly 2 million pounds of food products over fears of salmonella contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service reported on July 17.

The recalled products bear the establishment number “P-1358” and “best if used by” dates ranging from July 14, 2016 to October 10, 2016, and were sold under 19 brands. The affected items were distributed nationwide at some of the country’s biggest supermarkets. To date, the company has received three reports of illnesses associated with the issue.

Salmonella Enteritidis is a bacterium that can cause food-borne illnesses. Symptoms associated with salmonella infection include bouts of diarrhea, fever, and abdominal pain, and are particularly harmful in those with weakened immune systems.

Unsanitary practices in food handling and packaging significantly increase the risk of salmonella contamination.

Glass contamination prompts Beech-Nut Nutrition recall

About 1,920 pounds of baby food were recalled after its manufacturer received a complaint about a glass shard found inside one of the jars, according to a report by the U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service on April 14.

Beech-Nut Nutrition recalled its “Stage 2 Beech-Nut CLASSICS sweet potato & chicken” packed in 4 oz. jars over fears of glass contamination. The affected products were manufactured in December 12, 2014 and have an expiration date of “DEC 2016.” Recalled products have product numbers between “12395750815” and “12395750821,” and have an establishment number “P-68A” written on the DA’s inspection label.

Currently, the company has received one report of oral injury linked to the issue, but anyone hurt by the product should contact a health care provider for treatment.
