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.

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.
