A Week for Recalls

Sweetwater Valley Farms in Tennessee has recalled cheddar cheese due to contamination by Listeria monocytogenes. This is the company's second recall in less than two weeks. In both cases, the contamination was detected by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, but not until the products had been distributed over the entire 48 contiguous U.S. states. No reported illnesses have been linked to these products - yet.

A New Zealand company, Red Sea Natural Health, is recalling its Spirulina Powder (an herbal supplement) because of Salmonella contamination. The product is distributed throughout New Zealand. Please check the production codes listed in the recall notice. There have not been any reported illnesses linked to this product.

Update on the Australian orange juice recall. According to my sources "down under", the Salmonella contamination was detected by the manufacturer. There do not appear to have been any illnesses associated with this product as yet.
