Salmonella cornflakes will be used to make concrete

August 9, 2016: from Arutz7:

"Telma's infected cornflakes will be shredded and used to fuel furnaces for manufacturing cement."
"Trucks will arrive at the company's factory in the southern city of Arad today to load the 120 tons of Salmonella infected cereal and transport it to a facility in the north. There the boxes of cornflakes - and the 24 massive wooden pallets they were on - will go through a massive shredder."
"The crumbs produced by this process will then be shredded again to make them into smaller granules, and then be transported to various factories and used as fuel for cement furnaces."
"Cement is produced by the heating chalk and other rock to very high temperatures using vary large furnaces. The furnaces are generally powered by regular fuel or refuse produced during food manufacturing."


Salmonella cornflakes saga: 'A worker changed the labels'

August 6, 2016: from Arutz7:

"In late July, 2016, Unilever, which makes cereals such as Telma Cornflakes and Delipecan in Israel, confirmed that one of its production lines had been temporarily decommissioned due to contamination. Upon further questioning and testing, the company revealed it was Salmonella in the cereals.
"The Unilever company is claiming that the reason why contaminants had been found in its "Telma" cornflakes is that a warehouse worker took the bar-code off of one of a batch of uncontaminated cereal, and put it on a contaminated batch, sticking it one top of the code marking it as contaminated and not to be sold."
"Thus, the company claims, a salmonella-infected batch of cereal got through quality control at the factory and was shipped off to retail outlets in the Petah Tikva area."


Telma advises customers to throw away cornflakes

August 4, 2016: from Arutz 7:

"A week after it was revealed that Unilever, the producer of Telma brand cornflakes products, had destroyed tens of thousands of boxes of cereal amid fears of contamination, company officials have advised the public to dispose of any cornflakes not in their original box."
"On Friday, however, Telma issued its own statement, warning consumers not to eat any cornflakes – including the “Kokoman” chocolate-coated cornflakes – whose date and production number cannot be verified, acknowledging that customers were indeed at risk."
"The about-face came following reports that a woman in Petah Tikva had purchased a box of cornflakes produced while the assembly line was contaminated. This despite claims no products from the period in question had reached store shelves."
