McCain Foods Recalls All Products for Salmonella and Listeria Monocytogenes

McCain Foods has recalled all of their products for possible Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella contamination. Their facility in Colton, California is the source for these vegetables. There have been 13 secondary recalls issued for foods made with these recalled products. No illnesses have been reported in connection with this issue.

McCain Foods recalled these products on October 14, 2018, but only issued the recall notice to the companies they supply. While some of the secondary recalls have been for foods that are cooked before eating, many are ready-to-eat foods. There is zero tolerance for any Listeria monocytogenes contamination in those foods. More product recalls may be issued in the next few days.

And unfortunately, many of the recalled products are already past their expiration dates, so many of them have probably already been eaten. And since it can take up to 70 days for the symptoms of listeriosis to appear, many people now have to wait to see if they are going to get sick.

If you did purchase any of the recalled products and stored them in your refrigerator or freezer, you should clean that appliance because Listeria can grow at refrigerator temperatures. Use a solution of 1 tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to 1 gallon of warm water. We have information about the best way to clean your refrigerator after discarding recalled products.

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include fever, nausea, abdominal cramps, nausea, and vomiting. Those symptoms usually start within a few hours or days after infection. The symptoms of Listeria monocytogenes food poisoning include headache, fever, stiff neck, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only be ill with what seems to be the flu, but this illness can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, premature labor, and infection in the newborn baby. If you do feel sick, see your doctor and tell her you ate one of these recalled products.
