Commercial Kashrut Alerts



The following health alert is from the FDA on November 6, 2012.

Omya Inc. is voluntarily recalling certain lots of food grade ground limestone products processed at its Superior, Arizona plant because of the possible presence of Salmonella. There have been no reports of any illnesses or adverse health effects associated with any of Omya’s food grade ground limestone products. Although an investigation is still ongoing, Omya is recalling specific lots of Omya-Cal FG-4 AZ, Omya-Cal FG-10 AZ and Omya-Cal FG-15 AZ in the U.S. as a precaution. Omya’s voluntary recall is being conducted in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Omya’s food grade ground limestone products were sold to distributors and/or manufacturers as ingredients for further processing in the U.S. The food grade products were not distributed for retail sale to consumers. Omya is diligently investigating the possible problem and implemented additional precautionary food safety measures.
