Another week has gone by without any massive food recalls, but there were still a handful to cover. The most notable of them is actually a string of California recalls for dried plums — or saladitos — covering numerous brands that have pulled the products for having high amounts of lead.
The first of them was posted by the FDA on Feb. 3, and five others had been posted by the time of this filming on Friday morning.
On Feb. 9, the California Department of Public Health warned consumers not to consume eight specific types of dried plum products imported from China and Taiwan. Those products reportedly may contain up to 33.25 micrograms of lead per serving, which is 11 times the recommended limit that children under age six should consume in a day.
The impacted saladitos were sold at California retail stores in late 2021 through early February.
With that, here’s the other recalls we posted to Foodmanufacturing.com over the past week.
More Enoki Mushroom Recalls
Between Feb. 4-10, three different California suppliers recalled Enoki mushrooms products for possible Listeria. Jan Fruits (Vernon, CA), Concord Farms (Vernon, CA) and Golden Medal Mushroom (Los Angeles) each recalled packages of Enoki that were grown in Taiwan, Korea and China, respectively and distributed nationwide.
Listeria in Ice Cream
The Royal Ice Cream Company (Manchester, CT) is recalling specific lots of Batch Ice Cream Brand Vanilla, Ginger and Mocha Chip Ice Cream for possible Listeria. The 16 oz. pint products was distributed to Market Baskets, Big Y and Roach Brothers Markets stores in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Misbranded Chicken Pot Pies
Great American Cobbler (Homerville, GA) has recalled 4,272 lbs of misbranded chicken pot pie products, which contain undeclared soy. The frozen, Creole-style chicken pot pie items were produced Aug. 19 and Nov. 3, 2021 and were shipped to retail locations in GA, WI and VA.
