Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. has announced a voluntary recall of select 12-ounce bottles that may contain a small glass packaging flaw. This recall comes after quality inspections at their Mills River, North Carolina, brewery detected a very limited number of bottles with a flaw that may result in loss of carbonation and a small piece of glass to break off and possibly fall into the bottle, causing a risk for injury. While they believe this concern impacts roughly 1 in every 10,000 (0.01%) of their bottles packaged during this time.

To-date, they have not received any consumer reports of injuries resulting from the potentially affected bottles and are working with their suppliers to determine the root cause of the issue.

Brand Package Format Production Date
Pale Ale 12-ounce bottles in 6-, 12- and 24-pack (case) formats 12/5/16 – 1/8/17

Hop Hunter IPA 12-ounce bottles in 6-, 12- and 24-pack (case) formats 12/5/16 – 1/13/17

The specifics of the affected beer include those brands listed above with a package date that falls within the range AND a brewery code of “M” (Mills River) and not “C” (Chico), which is all information that can be found printed on the packaging and on the bottle.

Consumers who have purchased beer within the scope of this recall will be eligible for full compensation of the purchase price and are advised not to drink it and to dispose of the beer.

You may contact Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. at 800-596-7835 and leave your name, number and the nature of your question.

Farm to Market Foods Recall

Farm to Market Foods is recalling the items listed below due to undeclared allergens. This recall has been initiated due to peanuts, a known allergen, to possibly be present in the product from an ingredient supplied by a secondary supplier and used in the manufacturing of the two listed side dishes. The ingredient being recalled is a Worcestershire Sauce where peanut was not declared on the packaging label. Use of, or consumption of, this product may induce a severe allergic reaction in some individuals.

UPC # Product Description
061703795889 Green Bean Casserole Side Dish
061703795913 Cajun Style Dirty Rice Side Dish
061703795907 Cajun Turkey Dinner containing the Cajun Style Dirty Rice Side Dish
061703795908 Hickory Smoke Half Spiral containing the Green Bean Casserole Side Dish
061703795906 Smoked Turkey Dinner containing the Green Bean Casserole Side Dish

The problem was discovered on Dec. 22, 2016, when the firm was notified by their supplier that the Worcestershire Sauce used in the rice product was being recalled because the sauce may contain peanut. The establishment determined the scope of the recall by tracing the use of the recalled Worcestershire back to the October and November production dates.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Ron’s Home Style Foods, Inc. Recalls Tropical Fruit Supreme, Pineapple Nut Delight, and Pistachio Crème Because Of Possible Health Risk

Houston, TX – Ron’s Home Style Foods, Inc. is recalling Tropical Fruit Supreme, Pineapple Nut Delight, and Pistachio Crème, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, 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.

Tropical Fruit Supreme, Pineapple Nut Delight, and Pistachio Crème were distributed in Texas, Arkansas, and Oklahoma to foodservice distributors and retail supermarkets.

Product is packaged in plastic containers with the following information on the label.

The recall is due to a recall of an ingredient used in manufacturing these products. Valley Milk Products reported that certain lots of dry milk they manufactured have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. While Pistachio Crème does not contain the ingredient, it is made on the same production line as Tropical Fruit Supreme and Pineapple Nut Delight therefore we are recalling it as well.

Consumers who have purchased the above products are urged not to consume the product and to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1.800.856.3131, M-F 8am-4pm CST.

CLIF BAR® Nuts & Seeds Energy Bars, CLIF BAR® Sierra Trail Mix Energy Bars and CLIF® Mojo® Mountain Mix® Trail Mix Bars

Clif Bar & Company is initiating a voluntary recall of CLIF BAR® Nuts & Seeds energy bars, CLIF BAR® Sierra Trail Mix energy bars, and CLIF® Mojo® Mountain Mix® trail mix bars after an ingredient supplier was found to have distributed sunflower kernels that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes (L.mono).

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Only the flavors meeting the following criteria are affected by the recall:

  • CLIF BAR® Nuts & Seeds energy bar all pack configurations with coded date ranges starting 08JUN16 through 21JAN17
  • CLIF BAR® Sierra Trail Mix energy bar all pack configurations with coded date ranges starting 05JUN16 through 24MAR17

Quaker® Quinoa Granola Bars

The Quaker Oats Company, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, Inc., today announced a second voluntary recall of all Quaker® Quinoa Granola Bars, as a result of further sunflower kernel contamination found by ingredient supplier SunOpta.

On May 16, 2016, Quaker took the cautionary measure to issue the voluntary recall on a small quantity of their Quinoa Bars that were potentially impacted by sunflower kernels received from SunOpta that were potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes (L.mono).

L.mono 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.

Since May 16, SunOpta has conducted additional testing on sunflower kernels that extended beyond the original dates of concern provided. That testing is complete and as a result, out of an abundance of caution and care for the consumer, Quaker has made the decision to expand the initial recall.

The products were distributed nationwide and the company is now recalling all of the following Quaker Quinoa Granola Bars:

  • 6.1 ounce boxes of Quaker Quinoa Granola Bars Chocolate Nut Medley with UPC code 30000 32241 and Best Before Dates before 11/15/16.
  • 6.1 ounce boxes of Quaker Quinoa Granola Bars Yogurt, Fruit & Nut with UPC 30000 32243 and Best Before Dates before 11/15/16.

Pictures of the products are available on quakeroats.com.

Consumers who have purchased this particular product are urged to dispose of or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. They can also direct any questions to 800-856-5781, Monday – Friday, 8:30am–6pm (EST), or find more information at quakeroats.com.

At this time there are no other Quaker products involved in this situation. The company is working closely with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and SunOpta to further investigate this issue and ensure it has been contained.

Wonderful Pistachios

Wonderful Pistachios announced that it is voluntarily recalling a limited number of flavors and sizes of in-shell and shelled pistachios due to a risk of Salmonella contamination. Salmonella, 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.

According to Center for Disease Control and Prevention some of our products may be linked to an outbreak of Salmonellosis. The products, which were distributed through several retailers nationwide and Canada, can be identified by a 13-digit lot code number that can be found on the lower back or bottom panel of the package.

The full notice and a list of product UPCs can be found at the FDA website.

Consumers may return these products to Wonderful Pistachios for a refund by sending the product back or bottom portion of the package that contains the lot code (see photo below) to Wonderful Pistachios, 13646 Hwy 33, Lost Hills, CA 93249. If consumers prefer, they may return the product to the store from which it was purchased for a refund. Consumers should discard the nuts prior to returning the entire package or lot code panel to their retail store.

General Mills Issues Voluntary Recall Of Cheerios And Honey Nut Cheerios Cereal Produced At Its Lodi, California Location On Certain Dates

General Mills is voluntarily recalling several days of production of Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios cereal produced at its Lodi, California facility on certain dates in July of this year because of an undeclared allergen – wheat – with potential adverse health effects.

Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios produced on these dates at the company’s Lodi, California facility are being recalled because an isolated incident resulted in wheat flour being inadvertently introduced into the gluten free oat flour system at its Lodi facility. As a result, the products may contain an undeclared allergen – wheat – in products labeled as gluten-free.

General Mills will recall and retrieve affected cereals produced on those dates from customer warehouses and store shelves. Consumers with wheat allergies, celiac disease or gluten intolerance should not consume products bearing the affected code dates and should contact General Mills for a replacement or full refund.

This voluntary recall includes four days production of original (yellow box) Cheerios, and thirteen days of production of Honey Nut Cheerios at its Lodi, California facility with the following “BETTER IF USED BY” code dates and the plant code LD which indicates the product was produced at Lodi, California:

Honey Nut Cheerios Yellow Box Cheerios
12JUL2016LD 17JUL2016LD 23JUL2016LD 14JUL2016LD

15JUL2016LD 21JUL2016LD 17JUL2016LD
16JUL2016LD 22JUL2016LD

Products containing wheat can cause illness or severe reactions for individuals with wheat allergies or celiac disease. Products containing wheat can also cause illness or discomfort for individuals with gluten intolerance.

General Mills is transitioning five varieties of Cheerios to gluten free. Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios cereals produced at General Mills’ other facilities, or on dates other than those noted at the Lodi, California facility, are not impacted. General Mills’ other gluten-free Cheerios varieties – including Apple Cinnamon Cheerios, Frosted Cheerios and MultiGrain Cheerios – are not impacted and are not being recalled. No other General Mills cereals are affected

Consumers requesting refunds or calling with further questions should contact General Mills Consumer Services at 1-800-775-8370.

This re-fermentation could result in increased carbonation levels, and in some instances, bottles may overflow when opened or burst under increased pressure. The cider poses no health risk.

To identify affected product:
For case or 12-pack: look for the “freshness matters” code printed on the top or side panel. If that code begins with “June 2016 1665c” and is immediately followed by 4 digits between the range of 0001 through 0700 or “June 2016 1805c” and is immediately followed by 4 digits between 0001 through 0545.

For an individual bottles (please use extreme care when handling): look for the inkjet code printed directly on the glass on the “shoulder” of the bottle just below the neck label. If that code begins with “c1665″ immediately followed by 4 digits between 0001 through 0530 or “c1805″ immediately followed by 4 digits between 0001 through 0415.

If you have any bottles of this cider, please use extreme care and dispose of the product right away in an outside container. Then contact Angry Orchard for a full refund using their “Contact Us” form.

Consumers could take a product with undeclared levels of Acetaminophen, Dextromethorphan, Guaifenesin, Phenylephrine and/or Diphenhydramine. Consumers would not be adequately warned of side effects which could potentially lead to health complications requiring urgent medical intervention, particularly in the case of acetaminophen use in people with liver impairment, taking three or more alcoholic drinks or when taking other medicines containing this active ingredient without consulting a doctor.

RB is notifying its distributors and customers by direct correspondence. As a precautionary measure, RB is asking consumers to responsibly dispose of any unused product in accordance with the following recommended guidance for drug disposal in your household trash:

  • Mix liquid medicines with an unpalatable substance such as kitty litter or used coffee grounds;
  • Place the mixture in a container such as a sealed plastic bag; and
  • Throw the container in your household trash.

Blue Bell Creameries Voluntarily Expands Recall to Include All of Its Product Due to Possible Health Risk

News Media Contact: Joe Robertson, 979-830-9830, media@bluebell.com

Consumer Contact: 1-866-608-3940

BRENHAM, Texas, April 20, 2015 –Blue Bell Ice Cream of Brenham, Texas, is voluntarily recalling all of its products currently on the market made at all of its facilities including ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet and frozen snacks because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, 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 headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

“We’re committed to doing the 100 percent right thing, and the best way to do that is to take all of our products off the market until we can be confident that they are all safe,” said Paul Kruse, Blue Bell CEO and president. “We are heartbroken about this situation and apologize to all of our loyal Blue Bell fans and customers. Our entire history has been about making the very best and highest quality ice cream and we intend to fix this problem. We want enjoying our ice cream to be a source of joy and pleasure, never a cause for concern, so we are committed to getting this right.”

The products being recalled are distributed to retail outlets, including food service accounts, convenience stores and supermarkets in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma,  South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wyoming and international locations.

Today’s decision was the result of findings from an enhanced sampling program initiated by Blue Bell which revealed that Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream half gallons produced on 03/17/15 and 03/27/15, contained the bacteria. This means Blue Bell has now had several positive tests for Listeria in different places and plants and as previously reported five patients were treated in Kansas and three in Texas after testing positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

“At every step, we have made decisions in the best interest of our customers based on the evidence we had available at the time,” Kruse said. “At this point, we cannot say with certainty how Listeria was introduced to our facilities and so we have taken this unprecedented step. We continue to work with our team of experts to eliminate this problem.”

Blue Bell is implementing a procedure called “test and hold” for all products made at all of its manufacturing facilities. This means that all products will be tested first and held for release to the market only after the tests show they are safe. The Broken Arrow facility will remain closed as Blue Bell continues to investigate.

In addition to the “test and hold” system, Blue Bell is implementing additional safety procedures and testing including:

  • Expanding our already robust system of daily cleaning and sanitizing of equipment
  • Expanding our system of swabbing and testing our plant environment by 800 percent to include more surfaces
  • Sending samples daily to a leading microbiology laboratory for testing

Corona Extra Expands List of Production Codes Involved in Voluntary Recall of Select Packages of 12 oz Corona Extra Bottles

Total Affected Product is Still Less than 1 Percent of Bottles from One Glass Supplier; Company Aims to More Quickly and Effectively Recover Product

[CHICAGO – August 23, 2014 –] Constellation Brands Beer Division announced today that it is expanding the list of production codes consumers should look for to determine whether they have 12-ounce clear glass bottles of Corona Extra involved in a voluntary recall issued in the United States on Friday, August 15. The recall covers packages of Corona Extra in clear 12-ounce bottles sold in six-, 12- and 18-pack packages, because some bottles may contain small particles of glass.

After announcing the recall last week, the company continued and deepened its investigation of the issue. It found that the original list of production codes was not all encompassing and consumers may have affected product that was not identified in the original list of product codes. The company believes that the recall still affects less than 1 percent of the bottles produced by one of its four glass suppliers.

“This updated list clarifies the scope of our recall, and we are making this announcement out of an abundance of caution because our primary concern remains on protecting the safety and well-being of consumers,” said Bill Hackett, President of Constellation Brands Beer Division. “By doing this, we believe we can more quickly and effectively capture the recalled product and remove it from the market.”

To date, the company has received no reports of consumers being injured by drinking potentially affected bottles.

Anyone who previously checked codes on Corona Extra in their possession should check again to confirm whether they have potentially affected product. Consumers can determine whether they have potentially affected product by looking at an eight-digit alphanumeric code located on the neck of 12-ounce bottles and on the side panels of 12- and 18-pack cardboard cartons.
