Recall RoundUp, May 16th

In this week's Recall RoundUp, Dried Seafood, Lawncare Products, Air Pistols, and Carbon Monoxide Detectors.

The US Food and Drug Administration closed down Houston area Dried Seafood Processor Hope Food Supply, Inc. today.  After inspecting the facility, they found Hope did not have a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan for its fish and fishery products.  The HACCP violations documented by the FDA pose a public health hazard because, without adequate controls, Hope Food Supply's seafood products could harbor pathogenic bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and Listeria monocytogenes.  Food products with these kinds of pathogens can cause serious illnesses in people who eat them.  The FDA is advising consumers who bought smoked seafood products to check with the place of purchase to determine if the products came from Hope Foods.  If so, throw the fish away.  You can find all this information on the FDA's website by following the link on this page.  You can also call 1-888-SAFEFOOD.

The Scotts Miracle Grow Company recalled their Miracle Grow Shake N Feed All Purpose Plant Food with Weed Control, and their Bonus S Max Southern Weed and Feed Ant Killer.  The products are not properly labeled or registered with the Environmental Protection Agency.  If you have these products follow the link to the Scotts Web Site, and they will refund your money and send you bags to properly dispose of the chemicals.
