Harris Teeter recalls seafood products

Posted September 7, 2012

Harris Teeter is voluntarily recalling eight products sold in its service seafood department, as listed below, because they contain onions which may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious or life-threatening food borne illness in a person who eats a food item contaminated with it. Listeria bacteria are most commonly found in raw foods and symptoms may include fever, muscle aches, nausea or diarrhea.

Harris Teeter is distributing this notification upon being informed by its manufacturer 3 Fish, Inc. that the crab and lobster products listed below contain onions that may be contaminated with Listeria.

Harris Teeter is contacting customers who it has reason to believe purchased the products it is voluntarily recalling. Customers who may have purchased the products between Sept. 3, 2012, and Sept. 7, 2012, are asked to please return them to their local Harris Teeter for a full refund.

    "Prepared has little to do with it...just look at all the contaminated "fresh" fruit and vegetables from last year (cantaloupe, celery, onions, lettuce)...no amount of simple washing at your sink will fix that...if you eat anything uncooked you are at risk...prepared foods are not that commonly recalled and realistically if cooked properly are completely harmless if it is other than botchulism...as far as uncooked produce and fruit...buy grown in USA only and local from small farms if possible to reduce the risk...the big produce houses all use third parties for processing that increase risk of contamination...

    Prepared has a lot to do with it. Prepared means more handling by others. Prepared means possibly prepared in a facility that might not be as clean as it should be. Prepared means possibly allowed to warm up during preparation. Prepared 98n general is never as good an idea as doing the preparation ones self.

    well that's not good. Most folks who purchase this kind of food eat it rather quickly after buying......hard to recall. Hope no one gets ill
