Food Safety News

Days after recalling 11 tons of donated chia seeds because of rodent droppings, the Oregon Food Bank recalled almost 32 tons of pumpkin seeds and half a ton of nutritional yeast.

The reason for the yeast recall was not included in the recall notice posted by the food bank. The 63,825 pounds of pumpkin seeds are under recall for possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

As of the posting of the recall notices, public health authorities had not confirmed any illnesses in connection with the seeds or yeast recalled by the food bank. The food bank reported all three recalled products were donated at the same time.
