Gills Onions Voluntarily Recalls One Lot of Diced Red Onions Because of Possible Health Risk

Real food has its share of issues when large scale production is involved:

Gill Onions has issued a voluntary recall of diced red onions with UPC numbers of 643550 00045 0 in Canada and 643550 00041 2 in the United States.  Not all of the packages with these UPC numbers are included in the recall so the lot number should be checked.  The recalled onions were distrubted to retailers in a 7oz. clear plastic clamshell with Gills Onions label with a use by date of May 17, 2012 and 51RDA1A2119 lot code stamped on the UPC label.    This produst was also sold to foodservice customers in 5 lb clear plastic bags with an expiration date of 5/14/2012 or 5/15/2012, labeled Gills Diced Red Onions , and a lot code 51RDA1A2119 stamped on the bags and boxes.These packages were sold in Canada and several states in the United States including Arizona, Arkansas, Ohio, California, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Illinois, Michigan, Texas, Tennessee, Georgia, Flordia, and New Jersey.  If you have any of the reclled product you should discard it.
This voluntary recall was initiated as a result of a routine and random test directed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Gills Onions has notified all customers who received the recalled lot directly from the company and requested that they remove from commerce any of the expired product they may still have in stock. As an extra precautionary measure and because we do not always know to whom our direct customers sell our products, we are also asking our direct customers to notify their customers of this recall. Gills Onions is keeping the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency informed of its recall process to assure that consumers are properly alerted.
Consumers with questions may contact Gills Onions at 1-800-348-2255, M-F 8am-5pm PDT or at 1-209-678-1354 today, Saturday, May 19, 2012. Please visit thier website at www.gillsonions.com

Vegan Cooking for Carnivores

I am very interested in this new book by Roberto Martin. He is a Culinary Institute of America-trained chef and is Ellen DeGeneres’ personal chef. I have seen him on her show several times and his recipes always look delicious. When he first started cooking for Ellen he was not vegan, but while cooking for her vegan lifestyle he started trying the dishes, and realized how good the food can be. You can read the book description and order the book from Amazon here.
