AUSTIN, Texas (July 23, 2014) – Whole Foods Market has recalled made-in-store items prepared with organic and conventional stone fruit, including peaches, nectarines, and plums from Wawona Packing Co. because of possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

Made-in-store items that contained one or more fruits subject to the Wawona Packing Co. recall were sold between June 1st and July 21st. Not all items or all products were sold in all store locations. Affected made-in-store items such as cakes, tarts, salsas, and prepared salads were sold in Whole Foods Market stores using Whole Foods Market scale labels in all states where Whole Foods Market stores are located except Florida, Washington and Oregon. Additionally, Whole Foods Market pulled and destroyed the recalled stone fruit sold in all regions where it was available, which may have been labeled with a “Sweet 2 Eat” sticker. For a list of made-in-store items that have been affected by state, view a list of made-in-store items that have been affected by state (PDF).

Whole Foods Market was notified by Wawona Packing Co. that the various stone fruits were recalled due to a positive test result for Listeria monocytogenes.

Signage is posted in Whole Foods Market stores to notify customers of this recall. Customers who have purchased recalled product from Whole Foods Market should discard it, and may bring in their receipt for a full refund.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - May 21, 2014 - NEW YORK - KIND Healthy Snacks (KIND) is voluntarily recalling STRONG & KIND bars as well as KIND Healthy Grains Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt bars after learning that, contrary to KIND's strict quality specifications, its supplier roasted pumpkin seeds using equipment that had also been used to roast peanuts. "While we know our supplier conducted rigorous allergen cleans before roasting the seeds, they did not perform tests to validate that no peanut particles remained, and KIND takes no chances when it comes to the safety of our consumers," said John Leahy, President of KIND.

The five STRONG & KIND bars that are affected by the recall are clearly labeled on the packaging: Roasted Jalapeño, Honey Smoked BBQ, Thai Sweet Chili, Honey Mustard, and Hickory Smoked. In addition, KIND Healthy Grains Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt bars are also clearly labeled.

"Even though only certain lot codes may have been affected, out of an abundance of caution, and to minimize any inconvenience for our consumers and retail customers, we are voluntarily recalling all of the supply of these six products currently in the marketplace" said Leahy.

The six bars were distributed nationally in supermarkets and other retail food and non-food outlets.

No allergic reactions to any of the bars have been reported to date; however, people who have an allergy or sensitivity to peanuts should not consume these products. No other KIND products are affected, and the recalled products may be safely consumed by those who do not have an allergy or sensitivity to peanuts.

Customers with questions or who would like product replacements or refunds may contact the company 1 855.884.5463 Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. EST or e-mail the company at customerservice@kindsnacks.com.

WELLINGTON, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sixdog Investments, LLC is voluntarily recalling some cases of their certified organic eggs, because of the potential they are contaminated with Salmonella. This voluntary field action was initiated because of routine testing results, and not because of illness to date from consumption.

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.

Product was distributed in Colorado; some may have gone to Idaho, Kansas, New Mexico, and Utah. These were distributed through retail outlets.

The eggs are packed in dozen and half-dozen packages. The products in question will have a packing date of 93, 94, 97, or 98; an expiration date of “051814”, “051914”, “052214”, or “052314”; they will also include a location code of 1 or 3. All this information is on the package, located on a white sticker on the end of each carton.

The company is confident that any and all products sent out with any other packing codes or expiration dates are fully safe for consumption. NO illnesses have been reported to date.

Routine testing, initiated by the firm, revealed that the finished products from certain barns could potentially contain the bacteria. The company immediately ceased production in these areas, and began taking action to rectify the situation.

Consumers who have purchased these products may return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (970) 286-0080; a representative will be available 10:00-5:00 Monday through Friday.

Falafel King of Boulder, Colorado is recalling 10 ounce containers of Hatch Green Chile Hummus 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 headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recalled Hatch Green Chile Hummus were distributed to retail stores in certain areas of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Nebraska.

The Hatch Green Chile Hummus comes in a 10 ounce clear plastic container with a black-rimmed lid, the UPC #822986-10305-2 printed on the back label and a “Sell By” date beginning 02/14/2014 through 03/16/2014 printed just above the back label where the UPC / bar code is located.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the product.

The recall was the result of notification by the supplier of fresh green chili that there was a potential for the Listeria organism in the Bueno Foods roasted fresh green chili used in the Hatch Green Chile Hummus. The Falafel King recall was a completely voluntary decision in order to protect the consumers. Falafel King immediately changed its supplier of fresh roasted green chili and now heats the chili to at least 165º F then cools it before adding it to the Hatch Green Chile Hummus.

Consumers who have purchased Hatch Green Chile Hummus with the “Sell By” dates noted in this recall are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the Falafel King Corporate Office at 303-443-1346 Monday-Friday, 9:00a.m.–5:00p.m. MST.
