Grandy Organics Gluten Free Honey Oat Granola - recall canceled due to faulty testing and false results
3 weeks ago
Grandy Organics, makers of organic granolas, nuts and trail mixes based in the rural town of Hiram, Maine, announced today that they have retracted their recall of Gluten Free Honey Oat Granola that was publicized on November 5, 2023. After proper testing and cooperation with the FDA,... all Grandy Organics products, including Gluten Free Honey Oat Granola, are proven safe to consume.
Grandy Organics provided repacked samples of the product to the potential distributor who in turn had it tested at their labs for their own Quality Assurance records. Friday November 3rd the distributor informed Grandy Organics that traces of coconut were discovered at 6 parts per million in the Gluten Free Honey Oat sample they were given. In response, Grandy Organics swiftly contacted the FDA, initiated additional testing, and issued a recall to safeguard consumers. However, further testing revealed that the initial results were due to known cross-reactivity events with certain ingredients, causing a false positive for the coconut allergen.
The correct testing procedures confirmed that all Grandy Organics products, including the Gluten Free Honey Oat Granola, were free of allergens, as indicated on their packaging. The FDA reviewed the new data, finding no evidence of a violation, and supported Grandy

The Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) reports a significant increase in Norovirus cases, a prevalent cause of gastroenteritis, in Ireland. The data shows the number of cases tripling to over 30 per week in November.
In the second half of November, the HPSC registered an unusual increase... in the number of weekly Norovirus notifications. Alongside these reported cases, a surge in Norovirus outbreaks in healthcare settings - notably hospitals and nursing homes - has compounded the situation. The predominant strain involved is identified as GII.4, notorious since 2012 due to its enhanced capability to cause outbreaks.
The HPSC advises health practitioners to be alert to possible Norovirus contamination in vomitus and implement stringent cleaning protocols for affected areas. The public is urged to uphold basic hygiene measures including frequent hand washing with soap and water, avoiding close contact with infected individuals, and disinfecting potentially contaminated objects. The HPSC emphasizes the importance of individuals staying off work or school until at least 48 hours after the symptoms have passed to prevent further transmission of the virus.
Norovirus is very contagious and is easily transmitted from person to person most through the oral/fecal route. Considering that hand sanitizer does NOT work against this virus, it is important to wash your hands with soap frequently. Use bleach to clean and disinfect surfaces.
In case you experience Norovirus symptoms, such as vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, and nausea, report it now. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care
SOFIA PRODUCE, LLC which does business under the name “Trufresh” (“Trufresh”) has expanded its recall of all sizes of fresh cantaloupes packaged in cardboard containers labeled with the “Malichita” label, and also labeled with the “Rudy” label to include all cantaloupes sold between the dates of October... 10, 2023 and November 3, 2023, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The cantaloupes were distributed directly to the following States in the United States: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Utah, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Texas, Florida and Canada. Trufresh has been advised that there are 97 illnesses reported to date that have been associated with this strain of Salmonella.
Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
The cantaloupes would have reached consumers through retail produce markets which may be located in states other than those listed above.
The Malichita brand cantaloupes are packaged in cardboard containers bearing the “Malichita” label (picture attached). The Malichita brand cantaloupes also have an individual PLU sticker placed upon each cantaloupe in the form of the attached picture. As shown in the picture, the PLU sticker has a top half which is white which has the word “Malichita” written in script in black letters. The bottom of the PLU sticker is black and has the number “4050” prominently displayed in white letters together with the words “Product of Mexico/produit du Mexique”. This label will identify individual Malichita cantaloupes purchased by consumers.
The Rudy brand cantaloupes are packaged in cardboard containers bearing the “Rudy” label (picture attached). The Rudy brand cantaloupes also have an individual PLU sticker placed upon each cantaloupe in the form of the attached picture. As shown in the picture, the PLU sticker 4050 This label will identify individual Rudy cantaloupes purchased by consumers.
Trufresh began this recall after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) determined that Malichita cantaloupes have possible Salmonella contamination. The CFIA’s original recall was for possible Salmonella contamination of cantaloupes packaged with the same Malichita label and the same PLU sold to Fruits et Légumes Gaétan Bono. Trufresh is expanding the recall to encompass all cantaloupes under the Malichita brand and also the Rudy brand as a precautionary step.
Consumers should check if they have recalled products; and do not consume, serve, use, sell, or distribute recalled products.
Recalled products should be returned to the location where they were purchased.
Consumers who are unsure if they have purchased the recalled product are advised to contact their retailer. If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, contact your healthcare provider.
In case you are experiencing Salmonella symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

I purchased a spicy meat whole pizza Friday, November 24th. Less than 4-6 hours, I had nausea, excruciating side pain, threw up 3-4 times (whole pieces of sausage, pepperoni, etc.). I thank God I didn't eat the entire pizza...froze the rest. I was extremely close to heading... to the ER as I felt I was going to die. I believe the slices I froze need to be tested. ALL I ate yesterday was the pizza. I eventually went to the ER and was prescribed 3 types of medication. I'm still shocked, can barely eat, and am out of money because of this. I'm waiting for 7-Eleven to contact me on the weekday. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Other

Now it’s the next day and I still have diarrhea and feel like I need to throw up more. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Vomiting
