Announcement

Jackson, MI - Dawn Food Products is voluntarily recalling limited quantities of bakery mix products manufactured for Dawn by a third party and affected by a recall from Valley Milk Products of milk powder due to the possible presence of Salmonella .

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which can be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.  In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in organisms getting into the bloodstream such as septicemia, arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

As a result, out of an abundance of caution, we are recalling affected items distributed by Dawn Foods, including the following items which could become available at retail locations. A full list of the affected products distributed by Dawn Foods has been provided to our wholesale customers:

Product # - 00727521 R&H Speedy Crčme Instant Pudding and Pie Filling Mix 6 bags 4 lb 2 oz
Lot Numbers 61417130 61417131 61587135 61587136 61657130 62327131
62327132 62567101 62567102 62567103 62567104 62817131 62817132
Product # - 00257857 R&H Speedy Crčme Instant Pudding and Pie Filling 6 bags 4 lb 2 oz

Dawn takes food safety very seriously and as such, we are working with affected customers, vendors and the FDA in order to support a prompt response to help address this issue.

Announcement

On December 19th, Route 11 Potato Chips was advised by its seasoning supplier that an ingredient in its Sour Cream & Chive seasoning was subject to a recall. The ingredient, nonfat dry milk powder , was produced in a facility where the FDA identified Salmonella in the environment. Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. Although no pathogenic material was found in the finished product supplied to Route 11, the kettle chip maker decided out of an abundance of caution, to recall its Sour Cream & Chive Potato Chips, 2oz and 6 oz bags, produced with BEST BY DATES beginning with 2/9/17 and ending with 6/10/17.

To date, there have been no reported illnesses associated with this product.

The only product affected by this recall is the Sour Cream & Chive flavored potato chips.  Route 11 is known for having an excellent food safety record, and this its first recall event in the company’s 25 year history.

The company is asking consumers to return product to the store they purchased it, for a full refund.  If they purchased the product directly from Route 11, please contact the company for a refund or replacement.

Announcement

Ventura, CA - Out of an abundance of caution, Altijira Murray Products LLC is undertaking a voluntary recall of selected, 16 oz. (pint size) packages of Foxy’s Thoughtful Ice Cream produced by a contract manufacturer because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes .

The six recalled flavors, available only in pints, accounts for approximately 10% of the pint-packaged ice cream products carrying the Foxy’s brand label, equating to less than 4000 pints. All of the recalled products were manufactured and packaged in a facility owned by a contract manufacturer, Dr. Bob’s of Upland, LLC. No other products are being recalled & no illnesses have been reported.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that 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 infections can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found samples positive for Listeria monocytogenes in the contract manufacturer’s facility and in finished product of another company’s brand, leading the contract manufacturer to recall all ice cream products.

Because this recall affects only products manufactured specifically by the contract manufacturer facility, it is important that consumers carefully check the following flavor/code date combinations to be certain the correct products are removed.

The following flavors and “Best By” code dates are being recalled:
