Jalapeno Peppers Recalled Due to Potential Salmonella Contamination

EMSL Analytical offers quality testing services for Salmonella and other foodborne pathogens

 
PRLog - Mar. 30, 2012 - Castellini Company LLC is recalling certain jalapeno peppers that were distributed from their Wilder, Kentucky facility, because they may be tainted with Salmonella bacteria.

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the product was sold in full case, 1/2 case, 20lb, 10lb, 5lb, 2lb, and 1lb package sizes and distributed during the period March 8, 2012 through March 20, 2012 to military commissaries, retailers and foodservice distributors within ten states: Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

The Ohio Department of Agriculture discovered the potential for the Salmonella contamination while randomly testing a case of the peppers from a store in Ohio.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), most people infected with Salmonella will experience diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after contracting the infection. Symptoms usually last for 4 to 7 days, and many people recover without treatment. However, small children, the elderly, and immocompromised individuals are more likely to develop a severe illness. In those cases, patients require hospitalization and treatment with antibiotics. The CDC estimates that approximately 400 people die of acute salmonellosis each year.

“In testing for foodborne pathogens like Salmonella, EMSL Analytical provides the food industry with scientifically and legally defensible data in our analysis reports,” states EMSL’s National Food Microbiology Supervisor, Joy Dell’Aringa, M.S., R.M. (N.R.M.), C.F.S.P. “We maintain strict adherence to our Quality Assurance/Quality Control programs and regulatory requirements.”
