Back when Blogger updated their format I ran into many problems trying to compose with HTML. Being self-taught and using a lot of cut-and-paste techniques, I had too much trouble with the format and I got frustrated trying to get the layout for these "Recall of the Week" posts to look the way I wanted them to look. Being the dedicated blogger that I am, I simply gave up trying. But I still get the weekly reminders and it still pisses me off that we waste so much food and seem to be going about fixing the problem in all of the wrong ways that I have decided to suck it up and try again. With a different format, of course. So here's what happened this past week*:
Tyson Foods, Inc. of Sedalia, Missouri, is recalling approximately 33,840 pounds of chicken products that may be contaminated with a Salmonella Heidelberg strain (1/10/14).
Gusto Packing of Montgomery, Illinois, is recalling approximately 67,113 pounds of sliced, spiral ham products due to concerns about possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination (1/17/14).
*This list does not include recalls issued due to mislabeled foods, only recalls for food products that pose a potential health threat due to contamination issues.
