For Immediate Release

Fortuner's Food Company, Inc. Recalls Dried Lily Flower

Brooklyn, NY - July 16, 2001 -- Fortuner's Food Co., Inc. is recalling 4,000 packages of Dried Lily Flower because the product contains undeclared sulfites.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

Product was distributed in the New York City area.

Fortuner's Dried Lily Flower is distributed in a uncoded, heat sealed 6 oz. plastic bag.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered through routine sampling by NYS Dept. of Agriculture and Markets that the product contained sulfites and was distributed in packaging that did not declare the presence of sulfites. The consumption of 10 milligrams of sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit severe reactions in some asthmatics. Anaphylactic shock can occur in certain sulfite sensitive individuals upon ingesting 10 milligrams or more of sulfites. Analysis of the Dried Lily Flower revealed that it contained 84.5 milligrams per serving.

Establishments who have purchased the 6 oz. packages of Dried Lily Flower can return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 718-386-8996.

For Immediate Release

Quality Plus Products, Inc. Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Egg Yolk in Jackson's Quality Plus Smoked Wild Salmon Spread

Bellingham, WA - August 16, 2001 -- Quality Plus Products, Inc. of Bellingham, WA, is recalling its 7 oz. containers of "Smoked Wild Salmon Spread" because they may contain undeclared egg yolk. People who have allergies to egg yolk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The product comes in a 7 ounce clear plastic container with a white lid with the label on top and an expiration date on the side of the carton. All expiration dates are included.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the egg yolk-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg yolk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes.

Production of the product has been suspended until FDA and the company are certain that the problem has been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased 7 ounce cartons of "Jackson's Quality Plus Smoked Wild Salmon Spread" are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 360-734-1275.

US Bars Mexican Onions Due to Hepatitis a Outbreak Wed November 19, 2003 04:51 PM ET

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States has halted imports of Mexican green onions suspected of causing an outbreak of hepatitis A that has sickened more than 500 people in Pennsylvania, a Food and Drug Administration official told Reuters on Wednesday. FDA Deputy Commissioner Lester Crawford said the U.S. Centers for Disease Control on Friday will release an update on the outbreak, including the food source that has caused at least three deaths and where it originated.

Health officials believe Mexican green onions served at a Chi-Chi's restaurant were the source of the Pennsylvania outbreak. Recent cases of the liver disease in Tennessee, North Carolina and Georgia have also been linked to scallions.

"We are actually detaining the (green onions) at the border at the present time," Crawford said after testifying on an unrelated issue at the House Governmental Affairs committee. "This is the best bet of the source, but has not yet been finally confirmed."

Crawford said there were no indications the hepatitis A outbreak was intentional.

Hepatitis A is usually mild but can cause fever, exhaustion, vomiting, abdominal pain and in rare cases death.

As of Tuesday, 520 cases of the illness had been confirmed in Pennsylvania, the state health department said on its Web site.

The Chi-Chi's Mexican restaurant chain voluntarily pulled green onions off the menu at all its more than 100 restaurants after employees and patrons of Beaver Valley, Pennsylvania, restaurant became ill from hepatitis A.

The chain is owned by Irvine, California-based Prandium Inc

Consumers in Oregon Area Advised of Risks Associated With Raw Sprouts The Food and Drug Administration has been alerted to a recent increase in Salmonellosis cases by the Oregon Public Health Services possibly associated with the consumption of raw sprouts.

To date, six cases of Salmonella have been reported possibly linked to the consumption of sprouts. It is not clear what type of sprouts were the cause of the illnesses.

In light of this outbreak, FDA is reiterating its previous alerts about eating raw sprouts. Those persons who wish to reduce the risk of foodborne illness from sprouts are advised not to eat raw sprouts. This advice is particularly important for children, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems, all of whom are at high risk of developing serious illness due to foodborne disease. People in high-risk categories should not eat raw sprouts.

Salmonella is an organism that 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 (swelling of the lining the heart) and arthritis. Most cases resolve without the need for medical attention.

FDA will provide additional information as it becomes available.

Harmony Farms Recalls Alfalfa Sprouts Because of Possible Health Risk in Oregon

Contact: Harmony Farms, LLC (253) 833-8945

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Auburn, WA -- November 26, 2003 -- Harmony Farms, LLC of Auburn, Washington, is voluntarily recalling all of its 5 ounce "Fresh Alfalfa Sprouts", "Gourmet Salad Sprouts" and "Fresh Alfalfa & Oregon Onion Sprouts", which come in clear plastic clamshells, and all of its cases of 1 lb., 2 lb., 3 lb. and 5 lb. packages of Alfalfa Sprouts. The recall was initiated because the product may be contaminated with Salmonella.

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. Most cases resolve without the need for medical attention.

Harmony Farms' products are distributed to retail outlets, restaurants, institutions and schools in Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho.

The company's routine product testing has not detected any contamination in the sprouts produced by Harmony Farms. To date six cases of Salmonella in Oregon have possibly been linked to the consumption of alfalfa sprouts by Oregon Department of Human Services.

It is Harmony Farms' policy to fully cooperate with regulatory agencies in these situations to protect the public health. Harmony Farms will continue to work closely with Oregon, Washington and federal officials to investigate the facts surrounding these recent illnesses and to take all necessary remedial actions.

Purchasers of Harmony Farms' products under recall are urged to return these products to the place of purchase. Persons with questions about this recall action may call Harmony Farms at (253) 833-8945.

No other Harmony Farms products are affected by this recall action. As we have long advised on our product labels, sprout users are encouraged to wash their hands and clean their prep areas before handling sprouts to prevent cross-contamination from uncooked meat and poultry products.

United States Seizes Contaminated Food Articles at Northeast,Washington, D.C. Food Distributor Washington, D.C. - United States Attorney Roscoe C. Howard, Jr. and Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Mark B. McClellan, M.D., Ph.D., jointly announced that on Wednesday, November 26, 2003, at the request of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), United States Marshals seized articles of adulterated food from Phoenix Enterprises, L.L.C., a food distributor and storage warehouse located at 1260, 1262, and 1264 5th Street, N.E., Washington, D.C.

The U.S. Marshals seized scores of containers of food at this facility after a government investigation determined that the articles of food had been subject to widespread and active rodent infestation. The United States has also filed a civil Verified Complaint for Forfeiture in Rem against the adulterated food articles in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, seeking condemnation of the food articles in accordance with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (Act).

"This enforcement of federal consumer laws gives notice that the citizens of the District of Columbia must and will be protected from adulterated food," said U.S. Attorney Roscoe C. Howard, Jr.

The Government's Verified Complaint alleges that an inspection conducted by the FDA has disclosed widespread and active rodent infestation at Phoenix Enterprises, L.L.C. According to the Verified Complaint, multiple dead rodents, as well as a number of rodent nests, rodent gnaw holes, and hundreds of rodent excreta pellets were observed in storage areas throughout this facility, in, on and around the articles of food. The seized articles of food include food in permeable containers, such as paper, cloth, boxes, cartons and plastic, which are subject to penetration by rodents or their filth.

"FDA will use its enforcement powers to take action against those firms that violate Federal food safety laws designed to protect the food supply," said FDA Commissioner Dr. McClellan. "Firms that allow their food products to become contaminated with animal filth and infested by rodents and other pests have no place in the food business." FDA took action to seize the food products after Phoenix Enterprises repeatedly ignored FDA's warnings to take corrective action to prevent food from being contaminated. The most recent inspection of Phoenix, conducted in September 2003, revealed inadequate pest control and failure to maintain the warehouse structure to prevent pests from contaminating food products stored inside.

Phoenix Enterprises markets and distributes dried oriental noodles and other miscellaneous dried food products. The following products are examples of some of the products in the warehouse: Tapioca Ball, Nong Shim Chin Cup, Nong Shim Neoguri Udon Seafood and Spicy, Tapioca Starch, Vifon Pho Bo An Lien Oriental Style Beef Noodle, Pute Tamarind without Seed, Rock Sugar Yellow Lump, Egret Brand His Nhua Rice Stick, and Peeled Split Mung Bean. To protect the public, FDA will continue to seize any food product that is prepared, packed or held under insanitary conditions whereby it may become contaminated with filth or whereby it may have been rendered injurious to health.

In announcing the seizure and court filing, U.S. Attorney Howard and FDA Commissioner McClellan praised FDA Investigators Gale Glinecki and John Dimaano and Compliance Officers Elizabeth Laudig and Vinetta Howard-King, who investigated the case. Mr. Howard and Dr. McClellan also praised Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Reginald Bradshaw, FDA Assistant Chief Counsel Daniel Gabriel and Assistant United States Attorney Laurie Weinstein, who will handle the litigation.

State Health Department Warns Consumers Not to Eat Chaca Chaca, Lead-Contaminated Candy From Mexico

Contact: Ken August or Lea Brooks (916) 440-7660

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE --Sacramento, CA -- March 18, 2004 -- Consumers, particularly infants, young children and pregnant women, should avoid eating Chaca Chaca, an imported chili-based candy from Mexico, because this product may contain excessively high levels of lead that could cause serious health problems, Dr. Gilberto Chavez, associate director and state epidemiologist of the California Department of Health Services (CDHS), warned today.

"Lead is toxic to humans, especially infants, young children and developing fetuses, in both short- and long-term exposures, and can result in learning disabilities and behavioral disorders that could last a lifetime," Chavez said.

Recent analysis of Chaca Chaca by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) identified that the candy may contain as much as 0.3 to 0.4 micrograms of lead per gram of product. FDA has recommended that children under age 6 should not consume more than 6.0 micrograms of lead each day from all food sources. Because of the large size of these candies, which are more than 30 grams in weight per piece, a young child eating one of these contaminated candies could ingest nearly twice the recommended level. FDA has placed the Chaca Chaca product on "Import Alert" to detain future shipments of the candy and prevent its importation into the United States.

Chaca Chaca is a brownish-red colored fruit pulp bar that is coated with salt and chili powder. The candy is sold in packages of several small individually wrapped strips that often include a picture of a locomotive on the wrapper. The candy can be found in small markets throughout California.

Pregnant women and parents of children who may have consumed Chaca Chaca should consult with their physician or health care provider to determine if further medical testing is warranted. For more information about lead poisoning, parents and caretakers should contact their local childhood lead poisoning prevention program or local public health department. Additional information and a list of local childhood lead prevention programs are available at CDHS' Web site at [url="http://www.dhs.cahwnet.gov/childlead/."]http://www.dhs.cahwnet.gov/childlead/.[/url] The California Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Branch can also be reached at (510) 622-5000 for a list of these programs.

Consumers in possession of Chaca Chaca candy should dispose of the product or return it to the place of purchase for a refund. The public is encouraged to report any sellers of the candy by calling CDHS' Services Complaint Hotline at 1-800-495-3232.

FDA Statement FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Statement April 9, 2004 Media Inquiries: 301-436-2335 Consumer Inquiries: 888-INFO-FDA

FDA Statement on Lead Contamination in Certain Candy Products Imported from Mexico The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is aware of a problem associated with lead contamination of some Mexican candy products being sold in the United States and is advising parents, care providers and other responsible individuals that it would be prudent to not allow children to eat these products at this time.

FDA has compiled information which indicates that candies and related products that contain significant amounts of chili powder may contain higher lead levels than other types of candy, such as candy that contains predominantly sugar. Examples of chili containing products include lollipops coated with chili and powdery mixtures of salt, lemon flavor and chili seasoning sold as a snack item.

In addition, tamarind, a popular Mexican candy item, can become contaminated with lead if it is sold in poorly made glazed ceramic vessels that release lead from the glaze into the candy.

It has been a longstanding objective of the FDA to reduce, to the extent practicable, consumer exposure to lead from foods. The adverse health effects of elevated lead levels in children are well documented and can result in delayed mental and physical development and learning deficiencies.

The FDA is taking action to reduce the risk of potential exposure of children to lead from these candy products. FDA believes that contamination of chili powder may be occurring at certain steps in the manufacturing process. FDA will be working with Mexican government and industry personnel to resolve this problem, and plans to establish more stringent guidance for considering regulatory action against candy products containing lead in the near future, as announced in a letter to manufacturers, importers, and distributors of imported candy on March 25, 2004. The letter is available online at [url="http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/pbltr.html."]http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/pbltr.html.[/url]

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Cross Plains, WI -- April 15, 2004 -- Zander's Creamery, Inc., of Cross Plains, Wisconsin is recalling butter and butterine (60% butter and 40% margarine) products, 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 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.

The only known butter and butterine sold in retail stores is at GFS Marketplace Stores located in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan under the GFS label, in 1 lb. prints, butter cups, continentals, patties and 5 lb. whipped tubs.

The other butter and butterine products were distributed nationwide. These products include individual serving butter chips used by restaurants, butter and butterine cups distributed to restaurants, tubs of whipped butter for restaurants and bulk butter for food manufacturers, primarily under the Zander's and GFS labels.

The recalled butter and butterine products have codes beginning with 043 to 100 as the first three digits.

To date no illnesses have been confirmed in connection with this problem.

The recall was the result of routine sampling by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, the Food and Drug Administration and the company which revealed that the finished products contained the bacteria. The company has ceased the production and distribution of its products as it continues their investigation as to what caused the problem.

Consumers who have purchased affected butter products are urged to return them to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-608-798-3261. Commercial users should cease using and segregate recalled products pending receipt of instructions from their suppliers.

Stonington Sea Products performs regular testing for listeria and it has never been detected prior to this batch. The company has reviewed its plant procedures and increased its testing schedules to eliminate the reoccurrence of this problem.

Consumers who have purchased Cold Smoked Salmon with sell by date of 5/8/2004 are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-888-402-2729.

FDA Issues Nationwide Alert "Jelly Candy Pops Sour Zip Kids" Brand Halloween Candy May Contain Undeclared Food Allergen FDA is warning consumers about the possibility that undeclared egg allergens may be present in "Jelly Candy Pops Sour Zip Kids" brand candy that has been marketed during this Halloween season. Preliminary analysis by FDA indicates that this product contains enough egg protein to cause serious or life-threatening injury to those who suffer from severe allergy to eggs.

The product consists of individually wrapped lollipop candies in a cardboard display box. The label on the front of the display package reads: "JELLY CANDY POPS SOUR ZIP KIDS ***."

The lollipops are individually cellophane wrapped with the ingredient statement and the name of the distributor, Morris National, Inc. The ingredients statement does not list eggs.

To date FDA is not aware of any reported injuries.

The candy is imported from China by Morris National, Inc. Azusa CA, and was distributed through "Tuesday Morning" stores throughout the country. Although Morris National Inc. is in the process of removing the product from the shelves, FDA is concerned that people who may have already purchased this product are unaware of the potential risk.

Those who have purchased this candy should not consume it, but should instead return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Individuals who have egg allergies who may have consumed this candy should contact their doctors.
