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

Madrid sign Bale on six-year deal

first_img Madrid announced on their website: “Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur have reached an agreement for the transfer of Gareth Bale, who will be contracted to the club for the next six seasons.” The deal is subject to Bale passing a medical with the nine-time European champions, with all other details resolved. Real say the 24-year-old will be presented as their new player at the Bernabeu on Monday at noon UK time. Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas, speaking after Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat at Arsenal, confirmed Bale was leaving for the Bernabeu. “He is going to join Real Madrid so we wish him all the best,” said the Portuguese. “The player is an absolutely wonderful player. He has left us with some great memories from last season which every Tottenham fan cherishes, but he has moved on and we will move on as well.” Spurs had initially resisted Real’s advances, but chairman Daniel Levy explained he had no option but to let the Welshman go after the player’s head was turned. “Gareth was a player we had absolutely no intention of selling as we look to build for the future,” Levy told Tottenham’s website. Press Association After almost two months of speculation and negotiation, Madrid and Spurs both announced the transfer on Sunday evening. Press Association Sport understands Real have paid 100 million euros (£85.3million) for Bale’s signature. Real Madrid have confirmed the world-record signing of Gareth Bale from Tottenham. “He is a player whose career we have fostered and developed and he was only a year into his new four-year contract. “Such has been the attention from Real Madrid and so great is Gareth’s desire to join them, that we have taken the view that the player will not be sufficiently committed to our campaign in the current season. “We have, therefore, with great reluctance, agreed to this sale and do so in the knowledge that we have an exceptionally strong squad to which we have added no fewer than seven top internationals. More importantly, we have an immense team spirit and a dressing room that is hungry for success. “We wish Gareth all the best in the future and he shall always be welcome at (White Hart) Lane.” last_img read more

GBBC’s `Locked and Loaded’ ProAm/MMA card: DeClou versus Pompey fight expected to be a thriller

first_imgWHEN the Guyana Boxing Board of Control’s (GBBC) `Locked and Loaded’ card gets underway on April 23 at the Giftland Mall, Pattensen, East Coast Demerara, the co-feature event between Edmund DeClou and Winston Pompey is expected to be a thriller and fight fans can expect value for money.DeClou, a former CABOFE middleweight champion who is known to give his all whenever he enters the square jungle, will be making a welcome return to boxing as he faces Pompey in a super middleweight contest over six rounds on the ProAm/MMA card, which commences at 19:00hrs at the Giftland Mall.DeClou left the amateur ranks in 2009 and ever since, each time he steps into the ring, he satisfies the fans’ appetites with ‘fireworks’.The feature bout on the night’s card brings together Dexter `De Kid’ Marques and Venezuela’s Luis Alberto Requena Zarraga in a 10-round flyweight contest.Marques 15-2-0, similar to DeClou’s, has been inactive for 13 months and like DeClou, will be seeking to shake off the ring rust with the hope of coming out victorious for a promised Commonwealth title fight right here in Guyana.Marques last fought in February 2016 and this was against Zarraga’s countryman Freddy Belona, two years after his fight against Jamaican Rudolph Hodge, whom he (Marques) defeated in 2014 and was then absent from the ring until last year.The other professional fight on the card will see Imran Khan face Keeve Allicock in a six-round lightweight contest.Since entering the professional ranks in 2015, Khan has fought three times. The first he won via knock-out. It was a second-round victory over David Thomas, but the other two fights were against Quincy Gomes in February He drew the first and lost the second on points.last_img

The Denton Ryan Raiders secured their second consecutive unbeaton regular season this past weekend, with a 38-14 win over the Wichita Falls Riders on Friday night. The win boosted the Raiders to a perfect 10-0 record on the season as they captured the District 5-5A title.Oklahoma State quarterback commit Spencer Sanders lead the way on the night on offense, throwing for 296 yards and accounting for four touchdowns. As a team, Ryan earned nearly 500 yards and jumped out to a commanding 38-0 lead.Sanders showed off a few tools in the arsenal that has earned him a four-star ranking from 247sports, and one of the top dual-threat quarterback recruits in the country. When he has time in the pocket and a chance to step into the throw, he’s one of the most accurate quarterbacks throwing down the field. He’s perfected the run-pass-option offense for Ryan, something that OSU will almost certainly be able to utilize him in during his time in Stillwater.And he’s a heck of a competitor who isn’t afraid to pull it down and call his own number, as you can see around the 4:00 minute mark where he tucks it to run from about 35 yards out:Here’a a recap of Sanders’ scores from the game (via Sportsday Dallas):54-yard TD pass24-yard TD pass32-yard TD pass33-yard TD runRyan will travel to Fort Worth Brewer at 7 p.m. Thursday for its first-round game.

One more day.The CFB Playoff committee’s conundrumHey Bill Simmons’ site took up OSU’s cause this week.The ones who could unskew this weird situation are instead taking the path of least resistance. The committee could anger multiple fan bases by bumping Oklahoma State up the rankings, which would then also draw attention to the biggest refereeing blunder of the season and subvert the work of officials everywhere. Or the committee could tell us it’s impossible to argue with wins and losses, even though arguing wins and losses is the entire point of the committee in the first place. [Ringer]The part I can’t reconcile is if I’m in the business of arguing for OSU’s loss not mattering, then the natural logic says I’m in the business of saying teams should be determined based on how they play which, in this case, does not help me as OSU played horribly against a crappy team.Getting Turnovers is paramountI mean, yes, obviously, but did you know the company OSU keeps?Only Ohio State, Alabama and Louisville have scored more points off turnovers this season than the Cowboys. The Pokes are going to struggle to keep Baker Mayfield and co. from making their plays; Mike Gundy admitted as much on Monday. The key is whether the Cowboy defense can make their plays, as well. Behind Vincent Taylor, Jordan Sterns and Ramon Richards, Oklahoma State has been tremendous all year at creating big defensive plays. They’re going to need a couple Saturday in Norman to pull off the upset. [ESPN]I did not realize that list of teams getting points off turnovers was so short. Alabama, Ohio State and Louisville. Wow.The President ElectNot Trump. James Washington. OU has respect.In Week 3, he shredded the Panthers for 296 receiving yards, which remains the largest receiving output of any Power 5 receiver this season. No active wideout has more career touchdown receptions than Washington’s 25, either.“A great receiver,” said Oklahoma cornerback Jordan Thomas, who figures to be matched up on Washington early and often Saturday. “He plays the ball in the air well, and wins his fair share of the 50-50 balls. And he’s a bigger guy, he’s just more physical. And on top of that he can run. “He has the whole game.”I’m excited to see what No. 28 can do to a beleaguered OU secondary. Gonna be so much abuse we might have to bring Justice in to close.Truck-stick CarsonGood article here on Chris Carson. Odd that he doesn’t recognize his own ability.“We kind of joked about it in the running backs room, who’s what, what kind of runner?” Carson said. That’s when Carson received an awakening. “Some of the other running backs started saying, ‘I’ve never seen you run over somebody. And you’re squatting and lifting all this weight,’” Carson said. “So that’s something I’ve been trying to prove. And it’s working out.” [NewsOK]If I looked like Carson does, I’d run people over just going to class.Mason Rudolph, massive trash talker?Jenni Carlson on the Rudolph-Mayfield rivalry.Mayfield and Rudolph are already hearing it from each other. Mayfield is known as more of the say-anything guy, but he insists Rudolph is a sneaky trash talker. “He gets his in,” Mayfield said with a smile. “Mason can put on a show for the media, but he gets his in. There’s no doubt about that.” Mason Rudolph, flamethrower? “I throw my flames,” Rudolph said with a laugh. “But I do it privately. No need for y’all to see it.” [NewsOK]Not the first time I’ve heard this. Would love to see Rudolph unhinged with Mayfield next spring after a Big 12 title.Mason Rudolph’s “stuff”I love this from Mike Yurcich on Mason Rudolph.Rudolph is up there, Yurcich said, adding he and [former college teammate] Borchert have an “it” factor. Rudolph’s confidence as a true freshman in only his second game still stands out to Yurcich. “There’s that certain thing whenever a guy makes a mistake that he comes back stronger; I think Rudolph has that ability,” Yurcich said. “I think he has something about him that wants to prove to himself and everybody else that he was better than that mistake and he comes back with an edge to him. He never backs down. He loves the moment.” [O’Colly]I love that last line. He loves the moment. You can tell, too.Updated “Rudolph’s sleigh ride” just in time for Bedlam. pic.twitter.com/ExCqL1syHm— The OG (@GentsOkstate) December 1, 2016Sinor for HeismanAnybody going to take up the cause with me?She saw the “special” Carnley was talking about when OSU offered her son a full scholarship during Zach’s senior season. “That’s in our heads for all these years,” Valerie said. “And here we are. “That’s when you kinda go to your knees and say, ‘How blessed can we be?” [O’Colly]What Makes Justice greatOn how Justice Hill’s dad has helped him with nutrition and sleep and how Hill never hit the freshman wall.Meanwhile, Hill worked on getting his body ready for college football. Derrick has studied nutrition most of his life and healthy eating was a priority in the Hill household. He did not drink soda and steered away from acidic foods. Hill drinks alkaline water, which is supposed to help prevent injuries. Eating and sleeping well have perhaps been the secret behind how Hill has remained so durable as a freshman. [Tulsa World]I could not be more impressed with a freshman. Heck, that’s impressive for a 10-year NFL player!Stoops player abuse tree?Kevin Wilson was fired at Indiana on Thursday.Earlier Thursday, however, a former Indiana player’s father told ESPN that his son suffered a concussion in practice shortly before the 2015 season and was rushed back to workouts, causing his symptoms to intensify.

By Kyle Porter and Kyle CoxChris Carson is a Seattle Seahawk, or at least he is for the time being. He was drafted by the ‘Hawks in the 7th Round of the NFL Draft, and they clearly like what he brings to the table. Head coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider recently discussed what they enjoy most about No. 32.Starting at about the 6-minute mark below, Carroll brought up the former Oklahoma State running back and how what he liked about him.“I was hanging on Chris Carson,” said Carroll. “He’s a guy that I found looking through stuff late in the Draft kind of like [we’ve] done over the years and I really love this guy because he’s so physical and tough the way he ran. You haven’t heard a whole lot about him. He hadn’t run the ball a lot but when he did, he to me made a great statement of his style and a style that we really covet.GM John Schneider agreed before Carroll continued.“It’s really the same kind of formula,” added Carroll who said he was one of his favorites. “I kind of caught on to him late and I fell in love with how tough he is and how aggressive he is and that’s something that kind of falls into that same category and we didn’t want to miss him. There was a lot of activity around him, we thought and so we got him with that last shot there.”Both GM and head coach noted that they love the way Carson runs and protects the ball and that he didn’t have as single fumble in 2016.“It’s all part of it,” said Carroll. “It’s all part of it. Yeah. He’s really aggressive. He hammers it and I think you guys are really going to like him when you see him.”Carroll went on about Carson making the transition to D-I call his junior year and his injury struggles early on as a senior “When he finally got his chance, he really tore it up.”John Schneider and @PeteCarroll speak following the conclusion of the 2017 #NFLDraft.
