Carrot Products – Grimmway Farms – Recall
Foster’s Supermarket would like to announce that Grimmway Farms has recalled certain shredded carrots and chopped (chunk) carrots because of possible salmonella contamination.
“The recall was initiated as a result of a routine, internal company test, said Grimmway Farms President and CEO Jeff Huckaby. “The health of our customers and the integrity of our products are our highest priorities, and we will continue to monitor and communicate as additional information is available.”
To date, no illnesses have been linked to this recall, but 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.
In addition to the retail-packed products listed in the table at the end of this press release, the company recalled certain shredded carrots and chopped (chunk) carrots that were sold to food manufacturers and food service distributors. All affected food manufacturers, food service distributors, and retail customers have been notified with much of the product having been recaptured before being available for consumption.
The products listed in the table below were shipped directly to retailers throughout the United States.
Consumers can identify the recalled products from the table below and the photos posted on the company website. Anyone who has the recalled product in their possession should not consume it and should destroy or discard it.
