Mo. included in four recalls

Consumers in Missouri and Illinois are being asked to check their pantries, refrigerators and freezers for four products that have been recalled by their producers.

According to information distributed by the St. Louis Department of Health, the recalls include:

  • Almost 2,500 cartons of chopped or shredded romaine lettuce from True Leaf Farms that may be contaminated with Listeria.  The product was shipped between Sept. 12 and Sept. 13 to wholesale food service distributors in more than 20 states, including Missouri and Illinois. The bags have a use by date of Sept. 29, with a code of B256-46438-8. No illnesses have been reported.
  • Pureed pork products from K. Heeps Inc. in Allentown, Pa. that may have foreign material in them. The 4.5 pound boxes of "Imperial Sysco Puree Shaped Meats Country Style Pork and Binder Product" were produced on June 16, 2011 and shipped to institutional users in 12 states, including Missouri and Illinois.
  • Rich Products Corporation voluntarily issued a nationwide recall of SeaPak Breaded Butterfly Shrimp because of an undeclared milk product in the breading. Just one production lot was affected by the recall - it was produced on July 25, 2011. The 22 oz. box has a "best by" date of Jan. 25, 2013, with a UPC code of 100 41322 10254 6. Customers with the product in their house may take it to the point of purchase for a refund. The company says it has not received reports of any illnesses.
  • One lot of organic grape tomatoes sold under the Limited and Fresh and Easy labels has been recalled by Andrew Williamson Fresh Produce because some of the product tested positive for salmonella in Michigan. The tomatoes are sold in 10.5 oz. plastic clamshell containers with UPC code 033383655925 under the barcode. Those containers also have the words "LIMITED EDITION" and "Product of Mexico" on the label. 7 oz. clamshells with UPC code 20025465 sold under the "Fresh and Easy" label are also affected. Consumers in Missouri and Illinois who purchased the product should discard it.
