    SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. – Fruiti Pops, Inc. of Santa Fe Springs has recalled its mamey (mah-MAY') frozen fruit bars because of a possible link to a rare U.S. outbreak of typhoid fever.


    The company said Thursday that the fruit bars were distributed in California, Arizona and Texas since May 2009.

    Double EEK!

    "Infection occurs when a patient eats or drinks food or beverages handled by a person who is “shedding” the Salmonella Typhi bacterium in his stool, or if sewage is contaminated with the bacterium and the water is used for drinking or washing food. The investigation into how the Salmonella Typhi got into the frozen mamey juice is continuing. Because both companies involved got their mamey pulp from the same supplier in Guatemala, the contamination most likely happened there."

    Off Topic:

    If you've never read this book:

    Amazon.com: Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal (9780060938451): Eric Schlosser: Books


    The book is more in depth than the movie.

    Or watch a documentary called: Food Inc.

    These really are must reads and sees. It goes into how our food is processed. Even raw whole foods that are aggregated in one distributing plant for shipping. Which can put contaminated items with others--thereby contaminating them too.

    The man who wrote the book I linked, wrote it about 10 years ago and he foresaw a lot of the problems happening that we are having right now with massive recalls.

    Sorry for the off topic but had to share.
