Salmonella in Costco fruit sparks recall by Oregon food freeze dryer-sold in 36 states

An Oregon company is recalling nearly 60,000 cases of fruit produced for Costco over salmonella contamination.

Oregon Freeze Dry, Inc. in Albany sold the Kirkland Signature Real Sliced Fruit to Costco, which distributed the product to its stores in 36 states and Puerto Rico. None of the contaminated fruit was sold in Oregon or Washington even though it was produced in Albany.

The distribution list includes Costco stores in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The fruit was sold in a red-and-white case containing 20 pouches of freeze-dried snacks. Consumers who purchased Kirkland Signature Real Sliced Fruit with best before dates of Feb. 14, 2015 and March 11, 2015 should return the item for a full refund. The best before date is listed on the upper left corner of the front panel of the case.

1. Whew... I've got a case of best before Jan 2015.

 

I guess I'm safe?

2. Probably ... but, personally

I wouldn't eat it, and would throw it out. Just because I'm prone to psychological trauma about this stuff.

On the other hand, if you've been eating it and it's been fine, I guess you could just continue. You're here posting, so I presume you haven't expired!
