Another Listeria Recall

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Another company is recalling a food product over food poisoning scare.  Fresca Italia of Brisbane, California is recalling Burrata as a result of a survey sampling conducted by the California Department of Food & Agriculture. The agency’s survey revealed that Fresca Italia’s Burrata contained the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

Listeriosis is a type of food poisoning generated by the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria and is dangerous to the elderly, pregnant women, newborns, those with chronic medical conditions, people with HIV, or those who are undergoing chemotherapy. Most people experience mild flu-like symptoms—fever, muscle aches, nausea, or diarrhea. In serious cases, the disease spreads to the nervous system, causing headaches, stiff neck, and convulsions. In pregnant women, Listeriosis can result in miscarriage or stillbirth. Listeria lives in soil, stream water, sewage, plants, and food and can easily contaminate dairy and beef products; Listeria thrives in cold environments.

Fresca Italia’s Burrata was distributed in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Southern California in retail stores and restaurants. Fresca Italia’s Burrata weighs approximately 8.8 ounces and is packaged in a white and green plastic wrapper with the manufacturer’s name—“Caseificio Voglie di Latte”—and the product name—“Burrata.” The recalled batch is labeled with the expiration date of 24/5/2008. Fresca Italia has immediately halted further distribution of the Burrata product.

This year, Listeria has been the focus of a number of outbreaks, including three cases in North Carolina linked to soft cheeses and an outbreak at Massachusetts’ Whittier Farms dairy where four people died and more were sickened.

Earlier last month, the Georgia Department of Agriculture discovered Listeria monocytogenes in a sample of Bright Water Smoked Salmon & Cheese Spread. Also, R&R Alsatian Sausage and Products recalled some of its beef jerky products due to a possible Listeria contamination, according to the Department of State Health Services in Texas. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) directed Hope Food Supply Inc., a Pasadena, Texas, food processor, to shut down and immediately recall all products manufactured from its Texas facility since 2007 due to possible food contaminant risks following Hope Food’s failure to follow a previous consent decree.

Last week, the FDA announced another food recall for Listeria contamination. Amish Macaroni Salad was recalled and also, recently, Supreme Cuts, LLC voluntarily recalled 87 cases of Off the Cob Fresh Kernel Corn in 12-ounce bags for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
