Pinnacle Foods Inc. Recalls Beef Products Due to Potential Staphylococcal Enterotoxin and Clostridial Toxin

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that Pinnacle Foods Inc., a Fort Madison, Iowa company, is recalling approximately 32,479 pounds of heat-treated, shelf-stable beef products due to a possible processing deviation that may have led to staphylococcal enterotoxin and clostridial toxin contamination, today. The staphylococcal enterotoxinis produced by Staphylococcus aureus and is the cause of staphylococcal food poisoning. Clostridial toxin is produced by Clostridium Botulinum that produces toxins that, when ingested, cause paralysis. Botulism poisoning is extremely rare but so dangerous that each case is considered a public health emergency. The problem was discovered on April 27, 2018, by an Enforcement Investigator and Analysis Officer (EIAO) while conducting a food safety assessment at the establishment. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. @ https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts/recall-case-archive/archive/2018/recall-034-2018-release" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts/recall-case-archive/archive/2018/recall-034-2018-release
