Woah! That’s A Lot of Corn–RECALLED Because Of Botulism Risk
This is a whole lot of corn that got recalled. If you have corn on your shelf at home, you probably have to get rid of it.
Del Monte Foods is recalling more than 64,000 cases of incompletely sterilized canned corn. The corn has a botulism risk that could cause life-threatening illness if you eat it.
First, double check the bottom for the "Best if Used By" stamp. If they say any of these you have to get rid of them: Aug. 14, 2021; Aug. 15, 2021; Aug. 16, 2021; Sept. 3, 2021; Sept. 4, 2021, Sept. 5, 2021, Sept. 6, 2021; Sept. 22, 2021, or Sept. 23, 2021.
The recall of 64,242 cases of "Fiesta Corn" seasoned with red and green peppers was due to under-processing, the company said in a notice posted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The missed steps from the commercial sterilization process could result in spoilage and possible contamination with life-threatening pathogens, if eaten, Del Monte warned. There have not been any reports of illness as a result of the products, the company added", according to WIVB.
