Federal health officials warned consumers Wednesday to throw away certain cans of hot dog chili sauce after the product was linked to botulism that has sent four people to the hospital.

The warning applies to 10-ounce cans of Castleberry's, Austex and Kroger brands of hot dog chili sauce with "best by" dates from April 30, 2009, through May 22, 2009, the Food and Drug Administration said. It wasn't immediately clear how widely the products were distributed.

Robert Brackett, director of the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, urged consumers to discard any of the recalled cans without opening them.
"The toxin is so potent, if they get it on their hands or it sprays in their face, it could make them ill," he said.


Highlighting mine.

I did'nt see a thread about this, so I figured I would bring it to everyones attention.

With the various contamination threats from PRChinese products, food recalls have
become almost normal. I should note though that the products were not made in PRChina,
but are American produced foodstuffs.

So if you have any of this stuff, throw the can in the trash without opening it.

Comments, Opinions?

I said it in my initial post..

This product was NOT made in PRChina, it is American made, which is why it is such a surprise
to people, since it's been decades since something like this happened for these companies.

The initial list of a few items has now been hugely expanded to include not only dozens more
products, but to pet foods as well.

The full list of the foods currently being recalled can be found at the Catleberrys website, here;

I'm going to have to check if I have anything on this list.

Look up how many FDA insepctors we had in 1990 vs how many we have today if you really want to see what is wrong with food processing in this country these days.

In regards to China look no further than wal-mart and its push for cheaper and cheaper wholesale prices to see what is happening there.

The big lie has been that we, the richest country the world has ever seen doesn't have enough money to fund things like the FDA or the EPA or (whatever the hard right is against) until it comes to tax cuts for the wealthy, then there is always plenty of money.
