RECALL- Irena brand kreplach “Ukrainski”
As part of its regular testing, Misrad HaBriut found the presence of Salmonella bacteria in “Ukrainski” kreplach (meat-filled dough), manufactured 2 Oct 2013 and sold in 800 gram packages.
Salmonella can cause serious illness but is destroyed when the product is fully cooked.
As a precautionary measure, Misrad HaBriut is advising consumers not to eat this product and return it to the store where it was purchased.
Irena was the subject of another recall in February because of Salmonella- that time in stuffed cabbage.
Compare Israel’s reaction to the FDA regarding the latest Salmonella recall:
“While it is not unusual for raw poultry from any producer to have Salmonella bacteria, it is uncommon to have multidrug-resistant Salmonella bacteria. CDC and USDA-FSIS recommend consumers and retailers follow these food safety tips to prevent Salmonella infection from raw poultry produced by Foster Farms or any other brand…” – CDC web site
In other words- no recall.
