Recall of celery tied to E. coli outbreak expands to 16 states

Liz Szabo
A large California vegetable producer has expanded its recall of celery linked to a dangerous strain of E. coli bacteria that has sickened 19 people in seven states.

The celery was sold by Taylor Farms Pacific Inc. of Tracy, Calif., and was used as part of an onion and celery mix included in chicken salad at Costco stores. Now, the FDA has expanded the recall to a dozen retail chains in 16 states.

In addition to Costco’s chicken salad, the celery was used in sandwiches, wraps, vegetable trays, cornbread stuffing and other items sold at a variety of stores. Affected stores include 7-Eleven, King Soopers, Raley’s, Save Mart, Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Starbucks, Target, Walmart and Sam’s Club.

    When will people figure out if you let nasty ass people who don’t know how to use the wonderful facilities called a bathroom and a sink with soap and water. These are your illegal dreamers who you are letting touch your food, so Democrats and Liberals EAT UP!!!!!!!!

    • While many if not all food borne illnesses that take place in the public service sector are indeed caused by poor hygiene habits. It is also a fact that fruits and vegetables come from the fields and production line already contaminated. Ready to serve convenience food such as salads and ready to use herbs, fruits and veggies are also to blame. The consumer or business does not use anything other than a quick rinse if that, before they serve. If contaminated with E.coli or any other organism plain water will not be enough to remove it.
      Unfortunately, this is an endemic problem of the food production process not just a local business hygiene one.

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to share with us 🙂

        And they are using “gray water” to water the fruit and veggies. Nasty warehouses. Have you ever verb inside one! Or Tyson’s chicken plant???? It is soooo very, very gross and they have the nasty people growing, picking and handling our food.
