Recall : T. Marzetti Veggie Dips, Oak Lake Chip Dips and Great Value Chip Dips

Ever since I found out that I have a very nasty “visit your local ER” allergy to a particular food item, I’m always on the lookout for notifications and recalls that target the foods most people chow down every day.

Back on the 1st of this month, the T. Marzetti Company announced they are immediately recalling their… “Veggie Dips, Oak Lake Chip Dips and Great Value Chip Dips because an ingredient used in the product has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.”

Recall : Castella Chicken Soup

Looks like Castella Chicken Soup had to be recalled because of some good old fashioned Salmonella contamination!

The affected items are…

“Castella Chicken Soup Base 1 lb. is packaged in an opaque plastic jar with a white cap, a gold seal, a light yellow label, and UPC code 7 50144 33000 5. The recalled lots are: 0912039918, 1001121915, 1002013074, and 1002194266. The expiration dates for the lots affected are 12-3-2010 through 2-28-2011.”

There’s an industrial-sized version of the soup being affected by the recall too.

“Castella Chicken Soup Base 25 lb. is packed in an all white bucket, a yellow label, and UPC code 7 501144 3320 9. The recalled lots are: 0911259508, 0911259508A, 0912150738, 0912180973, 0912211087, 1001192342, 1001282925, 1002194267. The expiration dates for the lots affected are 11-25-2010 through 2-28-2011.”

And just because Salmonella looooooves you so much, it will give you… “fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. [And] 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.”

Fun!
