Commercial Kashrut Alerts



The following health alert is from the FDA on November 21, 2012.

Rio Queen Citrus, Inc. of Mission, TX is recalling 840 cartons of 12/1 Dry Pints of Mexican cherry tomatoes in "Karol" brand boxes, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The "Karol" cherry tomatoes were distributed through retail stores in the states of Texas & South Carolina.
The product was originally distributed in a bulk container of 12/1 Dry Pints in boxes labeled “Karol” with the Lot No. “01W45” stamped in the upper, right-hand corner on the face of the box. The box states “Distributed by Interstate Fruit & Vegetable”, which is an affiliated business of Rio Queen Citrus, Inc. These packages were distributed at the retail level between November 10th & November 19th, 2012. At the retail level, the tomatoes may have been packaged in an alternative container depending on the area and retailer.
The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by FDA revealed the presence of Salmonella in a sample taken from the product, identified by Lot No. “01W45.”
Consumers who have purchased Mexican cherry tomatoes in the listed states are asked to contact their retail store or place of purchase to determine if they were among the facilities to receive this product. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 956-205-7400, Monday-Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm (Central Standard Time).
