A few hours ago via twitter some follower’s let me know that Giant Eagle and an N.C. restaurant were pulling cucumbers. Ironic that Europe is in the midst of a recall of E. coli-tainted cucumbers and we are doing the same for a different bug, this time Salmonella. Here are the details:
Fresh cucumber supplier C.W. Hendrix Farms Inc. of Boca Raton, Fla., voluntarily has recalled cucumbers distributed from its facility from May 6-13 because of possible salmonella contamination.
Giant Eagle and other retailers have sold cucumbers from C.W. Hendrix, but the store says there have been no reports of customers becoming ill. The cucumbers that were shipped between those dates have been pulled from the store shelves, Giant Eagle said.
