VOLUNTARY RECALL LAMB WESTON ALEXIA ORGANIC HASHED BROWNS

This recall is being initiated for the potential presence of Listeria monocytogenes, which was discovered during sampling of the product. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.  

 

Lamb Weston is issuing the recall out of an abundance of care as we have not received any direct consumer reports of confirmed illnesses related to this product.

 

Although no illnesses have been identified in connection with the products, consumers should not eat any of the recalled items, as they could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. While these products are not ready-to-eat items and have cooking instructions which, if followed, will reduce consumer risk, there remains some risk that the mishandling of this product prior to or without adequate cooking may cause illness.

 

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. No other Alexia products are affected by this voluntary recall.

All units at both Berkeley Bowl locations have been removed and destroyed, please contact  Daphne Thurston, Sales Manager, 603-305-7716, daphne.thurston@lambweston.com

UPDATE ON LYONS MAGNUS LLC RECALL - STUMPTOWN BRAND

FRESNO, Calif. – August 10, 2022 – Lyons Magnus LLC (“Lyons Magnus” or the “Company”) today announced that following continued collaboration and consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and in furtherance of its longstanding commitment to food safety, the Company is expanding its July 28, 2022, voluntary recall of nutritional and beverage products to include additional brands and code dates. A complete list of the recalled products is in the table below. Consumers also are advised not to consume any products that are beyond their Best By Date.

This recall is being conducted due to the potential for microbial contamination, including from the organisms Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum. Although Clostridium botulinum has not been found in products, consumers are warned not to consume any of the recalled products even if they do not look or smell spoiled. The list of recalled products does not include products intended for infants (i.e., under the age of one).

While infection related to Cronobacter sakazakii is rare, the common symptoms of illness could include fever, vomiting and urinary tract infection. However, vulnerable and immunocompromised populations may be more susceptible to infection.

Clostridium botulinum may cause a severe form of food poisoning. It can begin from six hours to two weeks after eating food that contains the toxin. Symptoms may include double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and muscle weakness. Botulism poisoning can cause respiratory paralysis, resulting in death, unless assistance with breathing (mechanical ventilation) is provided.

Root cause analysis indicates that the products did not meet commercial sterility specifications.

The products are packed in various formats under many different brand names, which are listed in the table below. To identify the Lot Code and Best By Date refer to the top of the carton for individual cartons or the side of the case for multi-carton cases. Some products were distributed nationally, while some products were limited in scope. Products included in the recall were distributed starting in April 2021.

Anyone who has a recalled product in his or her possession should dispose of it immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Consumers in all time zones with questions may contact the Lyons Recall Support Center 24/7 at 1-800-627-0557, or visit its website at www.lyonsmagnus.com. This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the FDA.

Lot Number: 2021363-1 Best By Date 12/2024 & 2022026-1 Best By Date 01/2025
The recall has been initiated due to the presence of lead above the FDA's recommended limits; per the serving size
specified on the nutritional facts panel. Lead is a naturally occurring element that may be contracted in fruits and
vegetable during cultivation. Lead is a toxic substance present in our environment in small amounts and everyone
is exposed to some lead from daily actions such as inhaling dust, eating food, or drinking water.
Affects from Lead depend upon the amount of, and duration of lead exposure and age of the person exposed.
Symptoms can include abdominal pain, vomiting, lethargy, irritability, weakness, behavior or mood changes,
delirium, seizures, and coma. However, infants, young children and the developing fetus can be affected by chronic
exposure to amounts of lead that may not result in obvious symptoms of lead poisoning. A child with lead
poisoning may not look or act sick. Lead poising in children can cause learning disabilities, developmental delays,
and lower IQ scores
The product has been distributed during the time period of 1/31/2022 to 5/09/2022. No illness has been reported to us so far.

Re: Urban Remedy Recalls Urban Remedy Organic Revitalizing Tea Tonic - Strawberry Hibiscus Rose Due to Possible Hepatitis A Contamination

Urban Remedy is voluntarily recalling Urban Remedy Organic Revitalizing Tea Tonic Strawberry Hibiscus Rose (LOT 1232 BEST BY 7/17/2022) because it has the potential to be contaminated with Hepatitis A. Urban Remedy contracts Youngstown Grape Distributors Inc. to co-manufacturer this product. The product may contain fresh organic strawberries linked to the FDA outbreak investigation of FreshKampo organic strawberries. https://www.fda.gov/food/outbreaks-foodborne-illness/outbreak-investigation-hepatitis-virus-strawberries-may-2022.

Hepatitis A is a contagious virus that can cause liver disease. A Hepatitis A virus (HAV) infection can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months. In rare cases, particularly consumers who have a pre-existing severe illness or are immune-compromised, Hepatitis A infections can progress to liver failure. The illness usually occurs within 15 to 50 days after eating or drinking contaminated food or water. Symptoms of Hepatitis A infection include fever, headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, jaundice, dark urine or pale stool. In some instances, particularly in children under the age of six, Hepatitis A infection may be asymptomatic.

Persons who may have purchased the affected product do not consume, if consumed consult your health care provider or local health department to determine if a vaccination is appropriate and consumers with symptoms of Hepatitis A should contact their health providers or the local health department immediately.

No illnesses have been reported consuming Urban Remedy products to date.

The J. M. Smucker Co. is recalling select Jif® peanut butter products sold in the U.S. due to potential Salmonella contamination.
