Recalled Products Could be In your Garage or Your Fridge


October 18, 2018

USA- The bigcountryhomepage.com writes that there have been some major recalls in the United States over the last week. The recalls could impact health and safety, and everyone should check to ensure that the recalls do not impact them.*

In one major recall, 6.9 million pounds of beef might be contaminated with the foodborne bacteria salmonella. The meat was produced by JBS Tolleson Inc., an Arizona-based company. The beef was sold across the United States under several brand names, including Cedar Farms Natural Beef, Walmart, Showcase, JBS Generic, and Showcase/Walmart. The recalled meat has been found responsible for 57 cases of salmonella that occurred in 16 states. 

The meat is marked with “EST. 267” and was packaged from July 26 and September 7. 

Salmonella was also found in eggs sold by Gravel Ridge Farms. The eggs have caused 38 illnesses. 

Another foodborne bacteria, listeria, was found in found in 89,000 ham products sold by Johnston County Hams. The illness was reported in North Carolina and Virginia. Four people were made ill, and one person died from the infection. The products were produced between April and October 2, 2018, and were sold in Maryland, New York, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia. 

In addition to food recalls, 807,000 Toyota Prius hybrid vehicles sold in the United States were recalled because the cars have a defect that can cause them to lose their power and stall instead of entering “failsafe driving mode.” If the cars stall at a high rate of speed, there is an increased chance of a crash occurring. The problem can be fixed by updating the software. Toyota will repair the vehicles free of charge.
