Another enoki mushroom recall for Listeria risk; these distributed in 5 states

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Sun Hong is recalling all cases of its “Seafood” mushrooms — known as enoki mushrooms — imported from China that are packaged in 5.3-ounce packages because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The packages do not have expiration dates.

Sun Hong Foods became aware of this issue after notification by the California Department of Public Health that samples of the product tested by the State of California were found to be positive for Listeria monocytogenes. 

Consumers who have purchased Sun Hong Foods Inc. “Seafood” mushrooms are urged to not eat it and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

The enoki mushrooms were distributed in California, Texas, Washington, Illinois and Florida, according to the company’s recall notice posted by the Food and Drug Administration

Retailers including Asian supermarkets may carry this brand.

The cases of mushrooms have 40 packages of 5.3-ounce/150-gram single packages

Enoki mushrooms, sometimes referred to as “seafood” mushrooms are white  with long white stems and small white convex caps. They are usually sold in clusters.

Consumers can identify the recalled enoki mushrooms by looking for the following packaging details. The affected products are sold in a clear plastic tray that is packed in green and clear plastic. “100% Natural fresh” is printed in the top right. “Mushrooms” is written in cursive and in light green in the middle. The top half or the package is clear and the bottom is dark green with a white stripe going across. “Seafood Mushroom” is printed in light green and white on the bottom half. Beneath that are instructions to keep it refrigerated and its weight of 5.3oz/150g. Additional information includes:

  • UPC 6 953150 011881
  • Brand name on the back: Sun Hong Foods, Inc
  • Sold under refrigerated conditions

As of the posting of the recall notice, there have been no illnesses reported in connection with the product.

About Listeria infections
Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause serious and sometimes life-threatening infections. Anyone who has eaten any recalled mushrooms and developed symptoms of Listeria infection should seek medical treatment and tell their doctors about the possible Listeria exposure.

Also, anyone who has eaten any of the recalled products should monitor themselves for symptoms during the coming weeks because it can take up to 70 days after exposure to Listeria for symptoms of listeriosis to develop.

Symptoms of Listeria infection can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache, and neck stiffness. Specific laboratory tests are required to diagnose Listeria infections, which can mimic other illnesses.

Pregnant women, the elderly, young children, and people such as cancer patients who have weakened immune systems are particularly at risk of serious illnesses, life-threatening infections, and other complications. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, their infections can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn, or even stillbirth.

      When I first read this headline and saw that another enoki mushroom had been recalled, I thought holy shit!!! They somehow DID recall Biden!!! However my official prediction is that President Biden DOES NOT get recalled. So, save this prediction to rub in my face when Biden gets recalled!!! But I have not been wrong yet. I am much more accurate than Dr. Turdi! :idea:
