Much grass for the heads up.

It prompted me to examine the organic sweetie I bought last Saturday. It’s a BAKO, distributed by Country Sweet Produce.

Yes they pulled all off the produce sections.
A couple of years ago it was bagged salads, same thing.

Yesterday they announced it was just the red ones. Last night they said they were recalling all of them due to possible cross contimination.

Yup, a friend told me two days ago. She texted me while I was eating. I heard the text come in, but finished my lunch with my husband, which was chicken and lots of pico made with fresh raw onions, and some lettuce. Then I looked at her text after I had just eaten all of those raw onions. LOL. I checked the half of the onion in my fridge and it seems it was not from the bad farm.

She also told me there was a beef recall. I just ate some beef, so hopefully that’s ok. I cooked it through.

Hmm, I’ve got an organic red onion from Kroger-owned Fred Meyer mixed into some veggie burger patties… I wonder if those were possibly part of the problematic distribution?

JLeslie's avatar

@Zaku If it’s cooked through it should be fine.

Yes cooked onions are okay but the uncooked onions could contaminate your hands, counter or anything the onions touch while they are uncooked.
