Recipes & Cooking / Re: Spaghetti Squash recipes
« Last post by BensMom on Today at 03:24:54 PM »
Just came here looking for recipes and see that I posted a year ago that this was going to be my next food to try. Well I finally actually have one (2 actually because I didn't know how much I'd need). I'm cooking it today but will make it into a meal tomorrow. I don't want to use it like spaghetti with just marinara sauce. I'm not in the mood for that right now and think I'll just compare it to spaghetti and won't like it. I may do some kind of white/cream/cheese sauce. Or maybe something Mexican. So I'm looking for recipes, but might wing it with something.

Glad the FDA sentence was odd to you too. Really tired of proliferation of all the 'healthy' nut options.

Sorry for posting under general--it's more a Product thing.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 17, 2019 – Perdue Foods, LLC, a Perry, Ga. establishment, is recalling approximately 495 pounds of frozen ready-to-eat chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains wheat, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The frozen ready-to-eat chicken products are labeled as gluten free chicken breast tenders but contain chicken nugget products. The items were produced on August 30, 2019. The following products are subject to recall:
 
22-oz. resealable plastic bags containing “Simply Smart Organics CHICKEN BREAST TENDERS GLUTEN FREE” with “Best By: 08 29 20,” UPC Bar Code: 0-72745-80489-2, and time stamps of 00:30 to 01:00 (inclusive).
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-33944” on the package label. These items were shipped to distributors and retail locations in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.                                 
The problem was discovered when the company notified FSIS that they received two consumer complaints regarding the mislabeled product.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.   
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms are notifying their customers of the recall and that actions are being taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

The FDA sentence doesn’t make sense. They only have to label if it an ingredient, and it doesn’t sound like they would label for shared lines.

Many milk/dairy products are being run on undeclared lines with nuts and soy these days. It is scary.

I hadn't seen the nut butter products before. i thought I emailed before but revisited after this product. The response:

Yes, our Blended Low-Fat (2% milk-fat) Chobani® Greek Yogurt with Nut Butters may share production lines with our other products.

Although our Chobani® Greek Yogurt with Nut Butters products are produced on the same lines as our Chobani® yogurts, we ensure proper cleaning after each run, drastically minimizing the potential for cross-contact. The FDA requires this kind of label when it relates to a potential allergen, such as nuts. Being transparent with consumers about everything that goes into our products (and what doesn’t!) is important to us.

Perhaps he's had product since it became mixed. Doesn't ensure from future exposures. Not the allergen labeling I'm typically comfortable with nor purchase with that type of statement.
And also my reading of the "FDA requires a cross-contact label" statement a bit bizarre. I searched DS favorite flavors and there isn't a xcont statement. I'll check into more products on the shelf.

I'm also out of the loop, but I'm pretty sure the information from these sources is reliable.

The old-old place is still in existence.  For a while it had really gone down hill - not sure if it's better now.  I just looked and some of the current threads were started almost 20 years ago and have recently been reraised.  :disappointed:

DD just got in touch with me on behalf of her friends.  They just found out their little one is allergic to peanuts.  Since DS was desensitized years ago, and diagnosed decades ago, I really don't remember any resources to guide them toward, other than here (which I do plan on).  What suggestions/links can you all think of?
