Listeria hysteria ... watch out for your salad

I didn't see this posted anywhere: [www.cnn.com]

For Dole and a number of other branded salads ... two dead and 13 hospitalizations...

They had already put out a recall, but I guess some folks weren't aware? And surprising that there'd still be salads out there with best buy dates that aren't long past, and so you'd think they'd have been spoiled by now.

I haven't seen bagged salad on the shelf at the supermarket for a couple of months now.

Turns out that the safety of produce falls under the FDA. I wonder whether perhaps they've been a little distracted lately with something else.

We always 3+x wash our prewashed salad; someone said it's not on the leaves nor the stems; it is the root which take up nutrients from the ground. Where do we go from here?



SoCal for now.

we go through a pound or so of organic spring mix every week for our tortoise Glen. She hasn't said anything. I think her natural salmonella kills of the listeria anyway smiley-shocked003

But she is a Cossack princess, and isn't afraid of anything.

That's bizarre (that it falls under the FDA) ... I would have for sure thought it'd have fallen under the USDA, but you're right, and further, a quick Googling turned up how messed-up the system is: [www.brandeis.edu] (I love this line: "The USDA regulates catfish, while the FDA regulates tuna.")

And I presume you're referring to corona-related drugs about the distractedness...?

From the link: The recalls began at the end of December and are for products with "Best if used by" dates from November 30, 2021, through January 9, 2022.

Wouldn't these products all have been tossed by now?

My local Safeway has had washed lettuce in stock regularly. There was only one time recently when they were out, but had more back in stock a few days later. I've been buying their O Organics Spring Mix variety.

Glen's favorite too. better mix with more reds and purples.

What’s sad is that there’s a solution to mitigate this risk. Pure Bioscience sells a solution that is used to rinse produce and kills bacteria. It’s aqueous citric acid with ionic silver in it. Old school tech. Silver caused the cell walls to rupture. It’s partially why silverware was silver plated, not that they knew why it worked, but it worked. Copper/brass does the same thing.

Interesting ... one could argue that trace copper might not be a bad thing, since it's something human beings need trace amounts of anyway.

Side note: I just bought a TON of Dole salads (I just happen to really like them), so hopefully I'll be OK ... I presume they've traced the source of the contamination by now, and eliminated it...

Listeria instead of e. coli?

Usually we here only see listeria outbreaks among Hispanics consuming homemade queso fresco..

I just knew Newt would show up with one of her witticisms... good one! grinning smiley

And it does seem we've been seeing a lot of Listeria outbreaks recently... not just prepackaged salads, but also things like cantaloupe and hot dogs.
