Health - Food Contamination Alert


If you haven't already heard, Castleberry's has expanded their recall of the canned meat products they market due to concern about botulism resulting from faulty equipment at one of their plants.
Castleberry’s, which is owned by Bumble Bee Seafoods LLC and based in San Diego, voluntarily expanded the recall.

[...]

Brand names of the recalled products include Austex, Best Yet, Big Y, Black Rock, Bloom, Bryan, Bunker Hill, Castleberry’s, Cattle Drive, Firefighters, Food Club, Food Lion, Goldstar, Great Value, Kroger, Lowes, Meijer, Morton House, Paramount, Piggly Wiggly, Prudence, Southern Home, Steak N Shake, Thrifty Maid, Triple Bar and Value Time. The recall also includes four varieties of Natural Balance dog food.

Consumers with questions about the recall may contact Castleberry’s at 1-888-203-8446.
Yet another reason never to eat processed foods. Of course, that doesn't mean unprocessed foods are safe - just somewhat safer.
