Ground Turkey Recall!!

Filed under: BirdsDanger!

Turkey

Put down that turkey burger! Not another bite!

Cargill Inc. has announced a recall of their ground turkey products after testing showed it to be positive for salmonella.

The recall is for 36 million pounds of ground turkey. This is the second recall in recent memory from the same plant.

The last recall stemmed from an outbreak which sickened 107 people in 31 states and even killed someone.

So sad.

The plant has stopped production and begun a disinfection and steam clean of all their machinery.

An spokesman from Cargill said:

"Food safety is a top priority and taken extremely seriously at Cargill because we know that millions of people throughout the U.S. are eating food that we produce every day and we want to do everything we can to make sure that people are getting the safest food possible.”

No illnesses have been reported yet (probably because you listened and put down your turkey burger) but it’s possible infected turkey is still out there.

Any ground turkey made at the Springdale plant, bearing the number “963” or “P-963” on the package, could be infected.

If U have a package with that number, call 1-888-812-1646 for instructions on what to do.

Government officials have said that even contaminated turkey is safe to eat if it’s cooked to 165 degrees. But please, don’t chance it.

And wash your hands… thoroughly.

Kroger Pet Food Recall

Filed under: PetsDogCatDanger!

Kroger company is recalling select pet food

If you shop at Kroger, please CHECK your pet's food!

The Kroger Co. is recalling select pet food packages from stores in 19 states fearing some of these products may contain aflatoxin, a toxic chemical byproduct that could be harmful to animals.

The recall involves certain bags of Pet Pride Cat Food, Pet Pride Kitten Food, Old Yeller Chunk Dog Food, Kroger Value Cat Food and Kroger Value Chunk Food.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Aflatoxin is a fungal toxin that contaminates maize and other types of crops during production, harvest storage or processing.

A yellowish tint to the eyes or gums, severe blood or diarrhea, sluggishness, and reluctance to eat are all signs that an animal may be infected from the toxin, so immediately consult a veterinarian if your pet displays ANY of these signs.

The company has set up a Customer Recall Notification system to help customers determine whether they have purchased any of the contaminated products. Most of recalled products have an expiration date of October 23 and 24, 2011.

The states included in the recall are Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.

We hope your pet will be okay, but definitely don't hesitate to get it checked out if you suspect contamination.

blue buffalo recalls dog food

Oh no! We hope the affected pups are okay!

Packages of Wilderness Chicken, Basics Salmon and Large Breed Adult Chicken dry dog foods sold under Blue Buffalo Company Ltd. have been recalled because they may contain excessive levels of vitamin D.

If your dog shows signs of lethargy or exhibits unusually frequent water consumption and urination, they might have elevated levels of vitamin D. The company has reported that 36 dogs have been affected, but after discontinuing the food, there were no longterm health problems.

Phew!
