Food recalls, one from Oscar's, beginning to pile up


On Sunday, I reported on a recall of chicken nuggets from Tyson Foods sold at Wal-Mart and other stores and served in some restaurants.

Now, we have two more recalls announced, one involving Oscar’s Adirondack Smokehouse in Warrensburg, Warren County.

The federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall of 11 flavors of 7-ounce packages of Oscar's cheese spread with three-digit lot numbers ranging from 719 to 959. The numbers can be found on the bottom of the containers or on the cheese spread label. Product details here.

The recall was issued after the Minnesota Department of Agriculture found listeria monocytogenes in 15 products made by Parkers Farm Acquisition LLC, of Coon Rapids, MI. Oscar’s used the Parkers Farm cheese to make its smoked spreads.

In addition, a separate FDA advisory urges consumers not to eat certain other Parker’s Farm products sold at stores nationwide, including Price Chopper, Wal-Mart, Whole Foods, Target and Aldi. Product details here.
