Largest Recall of 2018 That No One Heard Of

While everyone was worrying about romaine, there was a quiet recall that none of us heard about. McCain foods processes vegetables and sells them to vendors all over the country to create things like those pre-made salads you see in Starbucks, Costco, and Trader Joe’s.

They recalled more than 100 million pounds of processed vegetables in 2018. I wrote about this briefly in my newsletter, but now there is news that they are shutting down their California facility. After all, “cleaning a facility of listeria- a notoriously hardy bacteria that survives in freezers and lives in pipes and drains can be difficult.”

If you’re interested in eating food and not getting sick from it, this might be something to read and then think about when you’re planning your next meal.

Jillian believes her passion for cooking stems from the fact that she was born and raised in Southern California.

Her love and ability to make people happy by way of delicious food began at an early age and still grows today.
