The Recalls Continue!

This looks to be a large recall. In yesterday's blog I discussed the large recall of Cantaloupe due to the farmers strike in South America. Today my mail box is FULL with other recalls due to this situation. What a shame! Cantaloupe not only tastes great but is a better source of vitamin C than oranges!

Bounty Fresh, LLC. Recalls Cantaloupe Because of Possible Health Risk (March 27)Fri, 28 Mar 2008 10:25:00 -0500
The recalled product was distributed nationwide to wholesalers and grocery stores. Whole cantaloupe fruits subject to this recall are packed three melons in a sleeve under the brand "Chestnut Hill Farms" and one melon per sleeve under the "Perfect Melon" brand. Individual melons are not labeled, but sleeves contain tags that say either "Perfect Melon" (one count) or "Chestnut Hill Farms" (3 count). Whole cantaloupe fruits subject to this recall were sold in boxes marked with the following text: "Cantaloupe, "Chestnut Hill Farms" (3 count) or "Perfect Melon" (one count), Produce of Honduras, Grown, Packed and Shipped by Agropecuaria Montelibano, San Lorenzo, Valle, Honduras". All boxes also contain the Chestnut Hill Farms logo.

Chiquita Brands International, Inc. Recalls Whole Cantaloupes Grown by Agropecuaria Montelibano, Honduras, Due to Possible Health Risk (March 27)Fri, 28 Mar 2008 12:48:00 -0500
Chiquita Brands International, Inc. today announced a voluntary recall of cantaloupes grown, packed and shipped by an independent third-party grower, Agropecuaria Montelibano in Honduras. The product was distributed to customers nationwide and is being recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Spokane Produce Recalls Cut Cantaloupe Products Because of Possible Product Risk (March 28)Fri, 28 Mar 2008 17:06:00 -0500
Spokane Produce, Inc. of Spokane, Washington is recalling Garden Patch, Yokes, and Rosauers Classic labels of various products of fresh cut and cut fruits containing cantaloupe, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Voluntary Recall on Honduran Cantaloupes Due to Potential Health Concerns (March 28)Fri, 28 Mar 2008 18:59:00 -0500
Dole Fresh Fruit Company, a subsidiary of Dole Food Company, Inc., has voluntarily recalled all Honduran Cantaloupes grown, packed and shipped by an independent third-party grower, Agropecuaria Montelibano of San Lorenzo Valle, Honduras.

As a country we must diligently keep watch over our food supply! The more dependant we become on imported produce the more we expose our families to the risk of food borne illness. I believe that not only is supporting local farmers good for buisness and our economy, not only is it the most great chef's design and build their recipies but it is the only way of controlling our food supply!

Grow as much as you can personally. I have grown all sorts of produce in pots here in the Northeast and been very successful. Delicious, healthy, fresh organic produce and herbs picked at their perfection. Tasty and safe! What you can't grow, buy locally. All throughout the US local farmers have stands where you can take home something just taken from the garden. You know the land and sometimes the farmer himself.

And to insure you're getting a variety of fresh, organic produce each and every day take "THE FEAST"! It's the only live whole food-based nutritional product on the planet that delivers a full, synergistic spectrum of over 176 all natural organic fruits, berries, vegetables, super greens, seeds, nuts and sprouts! All backed by a 90 day Unconditional Guarantee. For $1 a serving it's the best tasting most convenient way to insure your family the nutrition they need! Try a sample today!

Grace and Peace,
