Updated April 22, 2017 with additional recall information

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) are still wrestling with the fallout from an outbreak of E. coli O121 illnesses that began in November 2016, has sickened 27 people in five provinces plus one visitor to Canada, and is on-going at this time.

The index case was reported the week of November 13, 2016; the most recent on the week of March 19, 2017. It can take several weeks between the date symptoms appear and the receipt of a report by PHAC.

It was not until March 28th that PHAC was able to report a link between the outbreak and flour. The first recall notice was posted on the CFIA website that same day, to be followed by three updates. The following is a listing of all of the flour products recalled by Smucker Foods of Canada Corp. and Ardent Mills (the manufacturer). The items are sorted alphabetically by brand and descriptive name.

Many of these products were sold in retail stores, including Costco Canada. Others (highlighted in orange) were supplied to hotels, restaurants and institutions. Links to the individual recall notices posted on the CFIA website are supplied at the bottom of this post.

Please check back periodically. This list will be updated whenever more recall information is released.

More pentobarbital-contaminated dog food reported

Tags

, , , , ,

Two varieties of Party Animal canned dog food may be contaminated with pentobarbital, according to a test report from Texas A&M University released this week.

The report was provided to blogger Susan Thixton of Truth About Pet Food by a consumer who arranged for the testing after a family pet became ill. The consumer has not been identified. The test report was supplied by Thixton to the Food and Drug Administration April 17.

“The FDA has received test results of this food and is aware of the public statement from Party Animal, and is following up as appropriate,” according to a spokesperson with FDA.

A statement posted on the Party Animal Pet Food website confirms that it was informed by a retailer of the problem on April 13. The company has contacted the two Texas retailers who may have sold the food to the customer, and has requested that all remaining cans of the implicated production lots be isolated and returned for independent third-party testing. Party Animal also will be retrieving all remaining nationwide stock of the two production lots.

Party Animal Inc. is incorporated in California and is headquartered in West Hollywood, CA. Its principals are Chief Executive Officer and Secretary Daryl Alan Abrams and Chief Financial Officer Shawna Denae Abrams.

The implicated products, which the company reports were manufactured in 2015, are:

  • Cocolicious Beef & Turkey, Lot #0136E15204 04
  • Cocolicious Chicken & Beef, Lot #0134E15 237 13

In 2015, Party Animal canned pet foods were manufactured by Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food Co. according to an interview published in Pet Product News. Earlier this year, Evangers recalled several months worth of three beef-based canned dog foods after samples from two different products were determined to contain pentobarbital. The recalled products were manufactured in 2015.

According to the statement on its website, Party Animal has “… submitted many recent lots of [its] beef flavors for testing and all have tested negative for any pentobarbital.”

“We have also had extensive discussions with our manufacturer regarding the potential cause of the reported contamination of the 2015 lots,” the company states, “and we will continue with such discussions even as we await testing results for the 2015 lots. In order to ensure adherence to our commitment to the safety of pets, we are also actively re-examining our manufacturing processes.”
