Spinach recall renews debate over produce safety

first_imgAug 31, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – Metz Fresh, a California spinach grower, recalled 8,000 cartons of fresh spinach this week after finding Salmonella in routine testing, prompting a debate on whether voluntary safety rules recently adopted by the California produce industry are working.Metz Fresh, based in King City in the Salinas Valley, announced Aug 28 it was recalling spinach distributed under its own label in retail and food service packages. No illnesses had been reported in connection with the product, the company said.The recall covers 10- and 16-ounce bags, 4-pound cartons, and cartons containing four 2.5-pound bags, all with the tracking codes 12208114, 12208214, or 12208314. The spinach was distributed in the continental United States and Canada. The company encouraged consumers to discard the packages or return them to the store for a refund.Testing by an independent laboratory detected Salmonella on one of many samples on three packing lines, triggering a recall of the entire field lot of spinach packed that day, the company said. “Through its labeling and numbering system, Metz Fresh has already tracked, located, and put ‘holds’ on the vast majority of cartons of spinach affected,” the firm said in its announcement.Company spokesman Greg Larson said more than 90% of the recalled cartons never reached stores, according to an Aug 30 Associated Press (AP) report. He said the recalled spinach was picked Aug 22, and the company began telling stores and restaurants on Aug 24 not to sell or serve it, after a preliminary test was positive. Further testing confirmed the contamination on Aug 28, prompting the company to notify state and federal officials, according to an Aug 30 report in the Salinas Californian.Metz Fresh has complied with the California Leafy Green Handler Marketing Agreement (LGMA), a set of voluntary safety rules set up after a nationwide Escherichia coli O157:H7 outbreak was linked to fresh spinach from California last year, the AP reported. The outbreak involved 205 cases and three deaths.The safety rules were drawn up by the produce industry, but the system is administered by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA). Firms that participate in the agreement agree to undergo safety audits and can use an official safety seal on their bills of lading, according to CDFA news releases. About 99% of the leafy greens industry in California participates in the agreement, the CDFA says.Voluntary system assailedCritics of the voluntary safety system said the Metz Fresh recall shows the system doesn’t work, the AP reported. “Eight thousand cartons left the plant for distribution in the U.S. That’s 8,000 too many,” Jean Halloran, a food safety expert with Consumers Union, told the AP. “At this point, we are relying on the leafy green industry to police itself.”California State Sen. Dean Florez, who has pushed unsuccessful legislation for state regulation of produce safety, told the AP, “This in no way should be seen as a success story.” He said Metz Fresh should have found the contamination before any of the spinach reached consumers.But industry sources said the company’s ability to find the bacteria showed that the new testing procedures are working, the AP reported.”I think the test of the industry is how we react to these types of situations,” said Joseph Pezzini, chair of the LGMA board. “No one was harmed by the product, and that’s important.”Scott Horsfall, LGMA chief executive officer, said California inspectors found no problems at Metz Fresh in two plant and field visits earlier this month, according to the AP.”The overall system is working very well,” Horsfall said. “Consumers can have a high degree of confidence in this product, notwithstanding this recent problem.”The AP said the California Department of Public Health and the US Food and Drug Administration were investigating the Metz Fresh processing facility in King City.Dole expands produce testingIn a related development, Dole Food Co., a major produce marketer, said it has increased testing and tracking of produce to prevent disease outbreaks like the spinach-linked E coli episode a year ago, according to an Aug 30 Reuters report.Eric Schwartz, Dole president for worldwide vegetables, said the company is testing samples from every acre of spinach and other vegetables to be sold under the Dole name. If contamination is found, produce from that area will not be sold, he said.The company is also installing an electronic system designed to improve the ability to trace problems, the story said. The goal is to be able to pinpoint where, within 30 feet, any batch of spinach was grown.Schwartz said Dole has absorbed most of the costs related to the new safety measures but has increased the price of spinach by 2 cents a bag, Reuters reported.See also: Aug 28 Metz Fresh recall news releasehttp://www.spinnychips.com/metzfresh/Metz_Fresh_Press_Release.pdfJul 19 CDFA news release about the California Leafy Greens Handler Marketing Agreementhttp://www.cdfa.ca.gov/egov/Press_Releases/Press_Release.asp?PRnum=07-057Jun 28 CIDRAP News story “California lawmakers shelve E coli bills”last_img read more

Euronews announces six tourism trends for 2021.

first_img4. Authentic tourism: immersion in the community Careful tourism refers to creating deeper connections with the places people visit and traveling with the “less is more” attitude, avoiding crowded itineraries with “Top Lists”. Having a bucket list was a way to build social prestige, but as travel as a consumer act falls into disfavor, the more conscious traveler seeks out what more modest trips to less glamorous destinations are. According to the International Ecotourism Society, ecotourism is “responsible travel to natural areas that protect the environment, maintain the well-being of the local population and include education.” After a pandemic, people will think much more carefully about how to travel and look for hotels and companies that do everything to minimize their impact on the planet. We can also expect accreditation to gain in importance, as consumers seek security from legitimate “eco-tourism” and “negative carbon” certifications. 1. Wildlife tourism: celestial escapes In the analysis “What will tourism look like in our new reality?’six key travel trends emerging after 2020 stand out: 3. Eco tourism: “cultivate” In the age of Instagram, authenticity has become an ideal to strive for. As for travel, visitors do not want to visit standard resorts that are unconnected and sterile. They want to dive into destinations and experience something “real”. An important aspect will be working with local communities in a safe and honest way, with tourists eager to learn and make human connections. As far as authentic tourism is concerned, travelers also want to leave a positive mark – to give something back – whether it is direct payments to local businesses or volunteering. In the future, travel “on the go” will be much more frequent, whether it’s unfettered freelancers Gen Za, millennial professionals who can earn a living laptop or retirees without responsibility. Health care also motivates more and more people, so it is predicted that there will be an increased demand to buy cars as a substitute for public transport – although they have a great awareness of caring for the environment, this will give way to a boom in travel. 6. Careful tourism: collaborative camps 2. Nomadic tourism: camping trips In the age of the coronavirus pandemic, the quest to improve health and immunity will be a strong motivation for world tourists. in 2021 and later we can expect beach visitors to replace the sun and pina-colade with shade and coconut water. Even if visitors don’t travel explicitlyA detox or bootcamp experience, you will want to book trips that make you feel better than before you return home. Some will also be willinggo to the extremes of radical physical “overhaul”. After months of staying in their homes, there is a universal hunger for more open spaces. For example, in the U.S., national parks have experienced a huge influx of visitors after locking, and the trend will continue into 2021 as time spent in the wild is considered an antidote to modern urban life. 5. Wellness tourism: retreats for longevity Euronews has published its report on travel and tourism trends’ Travel after 2020. With the constant “noise” from our cities, as well as news and social networks, the search for silence will be a top priority. As expected, the traveler of tomorrow will increasingly want to live as a local, immersed deeply in different cultures and customs. They will want to escape from busy urban centers and enter the wilderness of less populated, rural areas, which could bring wealth to these local communities.

UK roundup: Towers Watson, FTSE 350, Hymans Robertson

first_imgTowers Watson is to launch an independently governed master trust as it looks to gain from the growing UK defined contribution (DC) market.Master trusts are multi-employer DC trust-based schemes run by third-party organisations.The consultancy said the offering was aimed at larger employers that prefer the independent governance of trust-based schemes but with a pricing structure similar to contract-based DC schemes offered by insurers.It will provide a fully outsourced solution to DC savings. Towers Watson said it expected DC assets to triple in the next decade.It appointed Fiona Matthews as managing director of the scheme, with the board chaired by independent trustee Donald Brydon.Paul Morris, head of EMEA at Towers Watson, said cost and governance were priorities but that the scheme design was focused on member experience and functionality.In other news, the deficit among defined benefit (DB) schemes within the FTSE 350 has increased by £27bn (€35bn) since the start of 2015 as falling corporate bond yields continue to push up liabilities.The research, conducted by UK consultancy Hymans Robertson, found liabilities had risen by £42bn between 1 January and 19 January, with deficit rises stemmed by a £15bn increase in assets.Real yields since the start of the year have dropped by 25 basis points, the consultancy said, with 15-year iBoxx corporate bonds hitting historical lows on 19 January.Jon Hatchett, head of corporate consulting at Hymans Robertson, said 10-year interest rates on corporate bonds were 3% at the start of last year, and have now almost halved.“Capital market volatility is an inescapable reality,” he added.“Market sentiment about economic conditions can change very quickly. What we see today is a dramatic turnaround from several months ago, when everyone thought interest rates would rise and the gradual unwinding of QE was on the horizon.“The picture at the end of 2014 was ugly, but it keeps getting worse. This will now be of greatest concern to the many companies whose year-end reporting falls on 31 March 2015.”last_img read more

Medicinal cannabis: Ministry of Health advised against decriminalisation for those in chronic pain

first_imgNZ Herald 3 January 2018Family First Comment: And for good reason…Cautious and research-based is always the best approach.www.saynopetodope.org.nz/medicinalThe Ministry of Health advised against decriminalising medicinal cannabis for those in chronic pain, saying it would lead to major issues over its legal definition.The advice is contained in a regulatory impact statement, released at the end of last year, on the Government’s Misuse of Drugs (Medicinal Cannabis) Amendment Bill.The bill would mean a terminally ill person could use illicit cannabis without being prosecuted while a comprehensive prescribing scheme is developed. That olive branch, however, was not extended to those in chronic pain, which has prompted many advocates to say the bill does not go far enough.The impact statement said decriminalising for those in chronic pain would be problematic.“Chronic pain is difficult to define, subjective, and would potentially cover a large patient group (21 per cent of adults experience chronic pain). Extending this proposal to this group would be likely to result in significant dispute around the definition of chronic pain.”READ MORE: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11969147Keep up with family issues in NZ.

Transportation

first_imgIn the early days when I was coaching, it was up to the coach to find transportation to away contests unless it was basketball or football.  This meant that kids usually were asked to drive.  No one seemed to be too concerned about liability, but as I think back now, what a risk we were taking.  In some cases you had kids driving who only had a license for a few months.  Fortunately, in the late 70’s, schools started buying vans and the coach could haul as many as 15 kids in these vans.  As I look back, these vans were really not much safer than some of the cars we had kids driving.  They got very top heavy when loaded to the maximum with student athletes.Before I finished coaching, the small buses became the mode of transportation for those sports that had smaller numbers of athletes.  You did not need a special bus license to drive these.  A regular car license sufficed.  These buses were a very stable way to transport kids.  As you know, they are still in use today and most schools have a full fleet of them for getting their athletes to away contests.  Big buses are still available, but in many schools, you must wait until they run their regular routes before they are available.  This means that certain athletic contests can’t begin until 5:30 or later.  Cars were more convenient, but buses are sure safer.last_img read more
