Salmonella Poisoning: Recalled Products

By on

After the Recall

The salmonella bacteria is also present in fertilizer, which may be one of several ways the lettuce and spinach from Tripod Farmers became infected, Associate Professor Yeatman assumes. There are a variety of opportunities for the infection to infect the lettuce if all of the processes are not thorough and careful. If the fertilizer hasn?t been treated fully, it might be contaminated.
The plant where the lettuce was processed and packaged could be another source of contamination if it hadn?t been cleaned properly. There is also a possibility that the packaging may have been pre-contaminated, Ms Yeatman said.

These critical points would be the focus of the entire investigation into knowing the source of the contamination. Customers are still being urged not to consume the products on the list.
