    I bought some ground beef from Kroger last week. As I always do, I portion it out & freeze it, therefore I do not have the original package with expiration date. A newspaper article stated that if you go to Kroger and make a purchase with your Kroger Plus card, it will tell you on your receipt if you purchased recalled meat. I went to Kroger yesterday, and no such warning was on my receipt, so I am hoping it's safe.

    My daughter buys a lot of ground beef for her family {she figures @ six times during the recall dates}, and she got a call from someone afiliated with Kroger, telling her to throw away any unused meat. Too late, as they had already eaten it. Luckily no one got ill.

    Still, I think it is good that the Plus cards track your purchases. In this sense, it's a good idea.

      I've decided simply not to eat any meat, vegetables, or fruit anymore. That'll take care of it!

        The only meat I buy is locally raised, organic beef from Wholefoods. For better or worse, I feel more confident in the safety of eating their meat products than anyone else's. Same go's for their chicken and pork as well.

          Fresh jalapenos in Texas. Not sure if this is nationwide? They thought it was tomatoes but now say it's jalapenos. I like the pickled ones anyway.

            We have had sooo many food and other product recalls that I think the general public has gotten a Ho-Hum additude towards them.
            Even the general news stations have back burnered them, no longer the lead story unless there's nothing else to report on.
            Hardly a day goes by without some recall or other, I don't think most care anymore. Chow Jim

                  Interesting take on the very quiet Whole Foods Beef Recall

                        I have seen plenty of "read kill" in these forums, but have never thought of cooking and eating the author. Interesting concept, Mncorn, You are surely a good ol' boy. How exactly do you go about this endeavor, though. I'm interested in learning.

                          HALLOWEEN CANDY RECALLED

                          (you can verify this on snopes: http://www.snopes.com/food/warnings/coins.asp

                          There is a new warning put out by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.... Sherwood brand Pirate's Gold Milk Chocolate coins are being recalled due to the fact that they contain Melamine, the ingredient in milk product that has caused many infant deaths in china. These candies are sold at Costco, as well as many bulk and dollar stores. Please make sure to check your children’s halloween candy and DO NOT LET THEM EAT THE PIRATE COINS (you know the ones wrapped in the shiny gold foil)

                            You are doing great work with this thread 6star. I for one, really appreciate your efforts.

                            I think it is only a matter of time until you are promoted to 12star. Seriously, thank you very much, you are giving people much needed information.

                                Lovely, but for meat at $9-$40 a pound I think I'd rather get sick.

                                        The peanut butter is scary because the knife to spread it goes around.

                                          I think this will be a very difficult time for those places that use Peanut Butter as a main ingredient in anything they try to sell. I am reminded of the sandwich shop in NYC that specializes in gourmet Peanut Butter creations. I would think they will have real problems staying open during this situation.

                                            Dearfolk,
                                               Poor Blakely, Georgia's peanut butter factory is gonna have to close down just like Sylvester's did awhile back until they clean everything up, all because some stupid snake crawled into a silo full of peanuts and ate itself into a swivet. Won't somebody go down there and housebreak those doggone snakes before this salmonella thing gets outta hand? Geez, Louise.
                                                  Uncrunchily, Ort. Carlton in Half-Bolied Athens, Georgia.

                                              6star, I'd like to add my thanks. There are some items on the lists you've posted that we regularly consume, although we haven't have them in the house for over a month.

                                                I agree with Mosca-thanks.Unfortunately I ignored earlier warnings and Bob was a victim of the Peter Pan peanut butter problem.We had 2 jars and he had consumed most of them.He was sick as a dog for a week-and thankfully his sister is a doctor and she saw the signs way before the recall. So now when I see your posts, I check immediately. You are providing valuable info.

                                                  6 Star..............all I can say is "WOW"...............and "THANKS" for keeping this list going and up to date.  I'm sure it is a lot of work, but it is greatly appreciated by many

                                                    Yes, We do appreciate the updates. I feel so bad for the folks in KY who have been handed MRE's or similar packets, only to find that some sleazy outfit included unsafe food packets in them. If they are/were being distributed via the Nat'l Guardsmen, how many millions of those meals in a bag went to troops in overseas activities. Somebody's got to held accountable...at the processing plant, and apparently in the inspection service and reporting agency that allowed this to go on for so many months.

                                                      Are all these updated peanut postings new or have they been published elsewhere for some time? I.e. is there a reference somewhere that can be looked up? Doling them out daily gives the impression they are newly found. I would think by now all the salmonella peanuts would have been known and pulled. If not, someone is not doing their job. It has scared the industry. Even though jars of peanut butter have supposedly not been affected sales are way down.

                                                          Here is an article on how Lund's and Byerly's Foods, a regional grocer, handled the peanut recall in Minneapolis/St. Paul. It is an interesting read. Minnesota has a state health department with a knack for figuring out what is going on.
