GREEN BEAN RECALL
(2008-01-30)
(wgvu) -
STUDENTS AT SOME NORTHERN IOWA SCHOOLS
WERE SERVED GREEN BEANS THAT WERE PART OF A RECALL BECAUSE THEY
COULD HAVE BEEN CONTAMINATED WITH BOTULISM.
THE BEANS WERE PRODUCED BY NEW ERA CANNING COMPANY, OF NEW ERA,
MICHIGAN.
THE RECALL AFFECTING IOWA WAS ISSUED JANUARY 18TH, BUT AN
EARLIER RECALL WAS ISSUED AFTER AN FDA INSPECTION IN DECEMBER
RAISED CONCERNS OVER CONTAMINATION.
THE INITIAL RECALL DID NOT INCLUDE IOWA.
STUDENTS IN TWO IOWA DISTRICTS WERE SERVED THE BEANS THREE TIMES
THIS MONTH. BUT THE SCHOOLS AND THE FEDERAL FOOD AND DRUG
ADMINISTRATION SAY NO CHILDREN APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN AFFECTED.
