What’s the problem?
July 29, 2010 – This week, the FDA announced a recall for over 2000 cases of poblano peppers packaged at the Pasco Processing, LLC in Washington. The items in question were suspected of listeria contamination which had been detected in a sample of the product.
The peppers were produced as Corn and Poblano peppers with product codes sold to food distributors that then resold them to three Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants in California, Nevada, & Arizona.
The FDA reports there are at least 1600 cases of listeriosis – with a 25% fatality rate – annually in the United States.
Most listeria infections are mild; however, it can lead to life-threatening complications including septicemia and meningitis.
Pregnant women are particularly susceptible, as the CDC sites that 30% of those infections occur in mothers to be. Listeria infections to unborn babies can result in miscarriages, stillbirth, premature birth, potential of fatal infection after birth, long term neurological damage, and delayed development.
