Eggs recalled in Colorado and 33 other states…  

Earlier this month, hard-cooked eggs were recalled in Colorado and 33 other states. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, more than one million eggs, or 15,000 pails of eggs, were recalled by Minnesota-based Michael Foods. The eggs were packaged in pails of brine. The recall was issued after investigators outside of the company found that some of the eggs Michael Foods produced contained listeria bacteria. Michael Foods has not received any complaints from consumers about becoming ill with listeriosis. The company also says that they have taken the necessary steps to prevent the contamination from happening again. Last year, around 30 people died after becoming infected with listerosis from consuming contaminated cantaloupes produced at Jensen Farms. The disease is most likely to affect people with compromised immune systems, infants, and the elderly. The recalled eggs were sold under the name brands Glenview Farms, GFS, Columbia Valley Farms, Silverbrook, Papetti's, and Wholesome Farms. Codes on the packages will have the number "1" first and the letter "W" at the end, if they are included in the recall. If you or someone you know has become sick after consuming a contaminated food product, contact the Denver toxic food products and containers attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C. at (303) 423-1770 to speak with one of our lawyers.

Wal-Mart pulls 3,000 batches of formula from shelv…  

Wal-Mart has removed a batch of baby formula from nearly 3,000 of its stores' shelves after a Missouri infant became extremely ill the day after eating the formula. He later died after taken off of child support. The Enfamil Newborn formula with the lot number of ZP1K7G is manufactured by Mead Johnson Nutrition. There had been no federal recall and the  lot tested negative to bacteria contamination, but Wal-Mart officials decided to take extra precaution until it is determined what caused the infant's death. Customers have the option to get the cans refunded if they have previously purchased. Samples given to the infant are now being tested by the Center of Disease Control to see if there is a link to the child's sudden illness.

FDA recalls frozen oysters shipped to Colorado…  

This week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of frozen oysters shipped to Colorado from Korean Farms in Santa Fe Springs, California.  Officials say the product has been linked to three cases of a norovirus in Washington. The recalled product had the brand name, "Assi," and was also shipped to buyers in Washington, California, Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Utah, and Texas.  Korean Farms reports that their product was mostly sold in Asian grocery stores in 3-pound bags.  The oysters have a "best if used by" date of "2013.02.232." The three people who have been infected with the norovirus were found to have eaten the frozen oysters in a restaurant in Washington.  The oysters were tested by the FDA and found to be positive for norovirus genotypes I and II.

Colorado cantaloupe linked to listeria outbreak…  

Last week, officials recalled whole cantaloupes sold under the Rocky Ford brand after they were linked to a listeria outbreak.  The cantaloupes came from a melon farm in Colorado. 4 deaths and 35 cases of illness linked to the recalled cantaloupes have been reported.  11 of these  cases were in Colorado. Consuming products contaminated with listeria can cause listeriosis.  Listeriosis is typically found in products like deli meats, hot dogs, and cheeses.  Symptoms of listeriosis include fever, muscle pain, stiff neck, headache, digestive problems, and convulsions. Chris Urbina, Colorado's Health Director, said that people who are most likely to be affected by listeria bacteria are people over the age of 60 and people whose immune systems may be compromised from a transplant or a chronic illness.  In addition, infants and pregnant women may be more susceptible to contaminated food-related illnesses like listeriosis.
