Recall: E. Coli in Mushrooms From BJ's Warehouse

From CNN Money:

BJ’s Wholesale Club, Inc. said Tuesday it was recalling packages of fresh mushrooms after it a routine inspection revealed the possible presence of the deadly bacteria E. coli.

The warehouse club operator said the products affected were Wellsley Farms brand fresh mushrooms purchased between February 11 and February 19, 2007.

You’re going to want to throw those out if you bought them, or you can take them back to BJ’s for a full refund. Consumers who have further questions may contact BJ’s toll free Member Care line at 1-800-BJS-CLUB. Don’t eat the e. coli ‘shrooms.—MEGHANN MARCO

    maybe it’s me, but don’t we have a government that is supposed to step in and protect our FOOD..let me see we used to have one…perhaps we misplaced it.

    Whats amazing to me, is that MORE fecal coliform is not found on foods. Given that foods like mushrooms are often grown directly on feces/manure. Things like this probably happened daily before inventory controls got effective enough to alert us of problems like this with so much speed and accuracy.
