A friend of mine with connections in the food industry has told me people in the US and Canada should throw out ALL of their sunflower seed-containing foods and just rule out sunflower seeds for the foreseeable future. A processor who supplies EVERYBODY with sunflower seeds was found to be contaminated with Listeria earlier this year, and recall after recall has been going on for almost two months. Brands affected include Planters, Clif Bars, Nature Valley, Atkins, Trader Joe's, SunOpta, Kroger, Papa Johns, organic bulk food groceris, and every snack food vendor everywhere, just about. The list just keeps growing and growing.
I mentioned this in Randomness a few days ago, but people should be aware of this. There is a massive recall of frozen vegetables ongoing in the US at the moment. Listeria contamination is suspected in frozen organic and regular vegetables processed by CRF Foods in Pasco, Washington. They supply vegetables and ingredients under a large number of brands to many retailers, including Trader Joe's, CostCo, Krogers, and Publix Supermarkets. The recall is not just vegetables, but dishes like stir fries, frozen entrees and salads made with those vegetables. Several lists of some of the products affected are here: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499406.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499568.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499623.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499858.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499852.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
