food recalls

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

A Kansas woman is suing a San Diego-based produce distributor after she was hospitalized with Salmonella poisoning linked to tainted cucumbers. Heartland Health Monitor’s Bryan Thompson has details.

Monica Rios loves cucumbers. The Sedgwick County woman says she bought a Fat Boy brand cucumber at a Wal-Mart store in Wichita last August, washed it thoroughly, and ate it in a salad. Within a couple of days, she was hospitalized with abdominal cramping and pain she says she wouldn’t wish on her worst enemy.

ConAgra Foods

ConAgra Foods is recalling some Kroger's Break 'N Bake chocolate chip cookie dough packages because they contain peanuts.

ConAgra says peanut butter cup cookie dough was inadvertently packed into the packages, which poses a danger to people with peanut allergies. No illnesses have been reported so far.

The recall is limited to 16-oz. packages of Kroger's "Break 'N Bake Chocolate Chip" cookie dough with the unit UPC code "11110 87530" and the use by date "24NOV13C21."
