product recall

there's a product recall from castleberry, a food processor in Georgia (it's that georgia thing, again! the peanut butter was from georgia!)

here's the brands recalled

apparently there's a botulism scare. oy!

thought y'all would want to know.

Not just Georgia - there are a couple folks in Texas in the hospital who were apparently affected. (The stuff ships all over the nation).

Like I told my classes this morning - I'm not too sure I'm pleased to learn that the same facility that makes canned chili also makes dog food!

Every time I hear a story like this, it makes me want to stop eating. Or at least only eat stuff that I know exactly where it came from and how it came to be produced.

Crap...Kroger's stuff is affected, and Meijers' (Krogers is an Ohio-based chain, and Meijers is Michigan). And Steak and Shake - I suppose that's the "chili size" they serve on their dogs.

(I don't really trust canned meat anyway; I've heard too many horror stories of people sickening and dying in the "olden days" from it to even trust the modern industrial stuff)

It seems like there is a new product recall everyday. I am especially concerned about all the recalls on children's toys and household products. I set up a personal file that alerts me to all product recalls and it sends me a timely notice when one of my products has been recalled.
