Foster’s pull foods avoiding health-scare

Http iframes are not shown in https pages in many major browsers. Please read this post for details.

Foster’s Food Fair has recalled a number of brands of protein bars, cookies, snacks and certain brands of cereals as some of the items reportedly have a bacteria which causes flu-like symptoms.

Foster’s said no illnesses have been reported to date and they are taking this action out of an abundance of caution.

See below for a full list of the products and more details.

1. Foster’s Food Fair – IGA would like to announce that Kellogg Company is voluntarily recalling certain varieties and limited dates of production of Mother’s®, Keebler®, Kellogg’s® Special K® brownies, Murray® and Famous Amos® snacks and cookies because they may contain undeclared peanut residue. Kellogg initiated the recall after its supplier, Grain Craft, recalled wheat flour that has the potential to contain low levels of peanut residue.

While consumers with severe peanut allergies should avoid the recalled products, the FDA has stated that the amount of peanut exposure from the flour is low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers. The company has received no reports of related illness to date and is taking this action out of an abundance of caution.

Select Foster’s Food Fair – IGA locations carry the affected product. Foster’s Food Fair-IGA carries, and has pulled from the shelves, the following items that are included in the withdrawal list:

3. Foster’s Food Fair – IGA would like to announce that Post Consumer Brands is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of its Great Grains Protein Blend – Honey, Oats & Seeds cereal because it contains sunflower seeds that have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The sunflower seeds were obtained from a supplier, SunOpta, which recalled its ingredient.

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.

No illnesses have been reported to date, but Post Consumer Brands is recalling the products out of an abundance of caution.

Select Foster’s Food Fair – IGA locations carry the affected product. Foster’s Food Fair – IGA carries, and has pulled from the shelves, the items that are included in the withdrawal list.
