Your Recall Hit Parade

July 11, 2009

Plainview Milk Products recall surpasses 200 products

The Plainview Milk Products Association recall continues, ensnaring more than 200 products so far. After issuing a recall going back two years, this recall – like the one for Peanut Corporation of America earlier this year – will continue to grow, pulling in quite a few different companies. Two weeks ago, Plainview issued a recall for several of its products after one of its customers found traces of Salmonella contamination in a product containing ingredients from Plainview.

Plainview doesn’t sell directly to consumers, but its products – whey protein, milk powder, gums, and fruit stabilizers – are sold to food processors around the country. So far, the most widely recalled product is powdered milk often sold under store brand names. There are plenty of additional foods being pulled in, however: cake mixes, instant sauces, oat meal, and more.  Additional information

JBS Swift recall now includes Costco

The JBS Swift Beef Co. recall continues, as well. The Colorado meat processor has recalled more than 400,000 pounds of whole muscle cuts – the larger cuts from which stores and other processors derive the more familiar, smaller cuts such as chuck roasts or processed foods such as sausage – because of possible contamination with E. coli.  The most recent addition? Costco customers in northern California are being warned that two Morton’s of Omaha products are now on the list: Classic Tri-tip and Rosemary, Garlic and Chardonnay seasoned tri-tip are being recalled.

Nestlé investigation finds no E. coli in factory or equipment

The Nestlé Toll House cookie dough recall is still underway, as is the investigation at the plant in Danville, Va., where the ready-to-bake cookie dough is made. Nestlé today announced that investigators with the Food and Drug Administration have not found any E. coli contamination in either the plant or the equipment after more than a week of tests.


Nestlé is now planning to do a few production test runs using new batches of flour, margarine, and eggs, according to company spokeswoman, Edie Burge, but no date has been set yet for renewed production. Not yet, anyway. Nestlé has no plans to leave the ready-to-bake cookie dough market, Burge added. Additional information
