 February 1, 2023

Conagra Brands Inc., of Fort Madison, IA, is recalling more than 2.5 million pounds of canned meat and poultry products because of a packaging defect that may cause the products to become contaminated without showing any outward signs of contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.


Recalled brands include Armour, Kroger, Goya, Prairie Belt, Hargis House, Grace, and Great Value. 


The problem was discovered when the company notified FSIS after observing spoiled and/or leaking cans from multiple production dates at the establishment’s warehouse.





Food safety settlement entered in the federal case against Honey Smacks producer

February 3, 2023
In one of the largest ever food safety fine and forfeiture case a producer of Honey Smacks cereal pleaded guilty to operating in unsanitary conditions that resulted in an outbreak of Salmonella infections.
The 2018 outbreak sickened at least 135 people according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. No one died, but 34 people had to be hospitalized. The outbreak spanned 36 states. The outbreak was determined to be over in September 2018. 


Documents unsealed today revealed that Salmonella had been found on an ongoing basis at the Kerry manufacturing plant in Gridley, IL. During the time period June 2016 to June 2018, routine environmental tests detected Salmonella in the plant 81 times, including at least one positive Salmonella sample each month.


According to the plea agreement with the company, employees at the Gridley facility routinely failed to implement corrective and preventative actions to address positive Salmonella tests.




Baltimore company recalls hundreds of products because of Listeria contamination

 February 4, 2023
Fresh Ideation Food Group LLC of Baltimore, MD is recalling products sold from Jan. 24 through Jan. 30 because the products have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Some of the products have best by dates of Feb. 6.


Products have been distributed in Connecticut, District of Columbia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia. Recalled Products were sold in retail locations, vending machines, and during travel with transportation providers. Some of the products have best by dates of Feb. 6.


The products include sandwiches, salads, snacks, yogurt, wraps and related products. See chart for a list of implicated products. Even if it has been several days since consuming the products, consumers are urged to watch for symptoms of Listeria infection because it can take up to 70 days for symptoms to develop. 


  • Symptoms of Listeria infection can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache, and neck stiffness. Specific laboratory tests are required to diagnose Listeria infections, which can mimic other illnesses. 
  • Pregnant women, the elderly, young children, and people such as cancer patients who have weakened immune systems are particularly at risk of serious illnesses, life-threatening infections, and other complications. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, their infections can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn, or even stillbirth.
