Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following health alert is from the Brooks Tropical on August 8, 2014.

Brooks Tropicals, LLC of Homestead, FL is voluntarily issuing a limited recall of 401 boxes of fresh green skin avocados with a single Lot # 2610 because they may have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
Green-skinned avocados from the lot were distributed to a limited number of customers in Florida, New York, Illinois, Georgia, and New Jersey. All customers shipped Lot # 2610 have been notified and since product was packed over three weeks ago on July 15, no product should remain in the market since the product is greatly beyond its shelf life. .
The potential for contamination was discovered as the result of a routine FDA random lot sample taken on July 16, 2014, but positive analysis confirmed verbally by FDA was only received August 6. The fruit was packed on July 15 and has about a ten (10) day shelf life.
Any product remaining in the market channels with the Lot # 2610 should be disposed of immediately.
For more information, please contact Bill Brindle at 305 247-3544 or billb@brookstropicals.com
