Check out the recalls and protect your family then please leave a comment telling me what you are doing for Easter or just for Sunday to help cheer us all up a bit.

---------- Recalls for April 1, 2018 ----------

Delizza Mini Eclairs Recalled

Poppies International, Inc. of Battleboro, NC is issuing a voluntary recall of selected products that were made during March 5-9, 2018 because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  Although healthy individuals may suffer only short term symptoms such as fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

They can be identified by the following lot number (L1M1018 Best Before 09/09/19)  which can be found on the side of each tub by the lid as shown below.

The recall was a result of a routine sampling program by the company which revealed that finished product ran on the same line contained the bacteria. The company did not release any product that tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes and as a precautionary measure is recalling all product ran on the line during that production week. No illnesses or adverse health effects resulting from these events have been reported to date.

Any consumers who have purchased or received any of the products described below should immediately discontinue use of the product and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
