Commercial Kashrut Alerts

The following health alert is from the FDA on December 31, 2015.

Thomas Produce Company of Boca Raton, FL is recalling 174 bulk-packed containers of Cucumbers. This product has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
This product was sold to distributors in Florida and Georgia between 12/15/2015 and 12/16/2015. All distributors that received this product have been notified as of the time of this press release.
The fresh, whole, green Cucumbers were sold in 166 cardboard bushel boxes (1 1/9 bushel size) with one of the following lot numbers ink-jet printed on the side: 1554311JDNK, 1554311HDNK, and 15143115DNK. These cucumbers were also distributed in 8 bulk cardboard bins(4'x4' size) tagged with codes 15NKJD-1554311-D, 15NKHD-1554311-D, and 15NK5D-1514311-D.
This recall notice is being issued due to an isolated instance in which a sample of Thomas Produce Cucumbers yielded a positive result for Salmonella in a random sample test conducted by the FDA. Out of an abundance of caution, the company has elected to recall all lots of cucumbers that were packed on the same day. The company has ceased production and distribution of the affected lots of cucumbers as the FDA and the company continue their investigation.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to not consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the original place of purchase. Consumers with questions may contact Richard Wilson, Compliance Director, of Thomas Produce Company at 1-561-482-1111 Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. EST.
