Jim Prevor’s Perishable Pundit, August 7, 2007
It seems as if even the wrapping of the Pundit has strong readership as, last week, we received a bunch of phone calls and e-mails including this succinct note:
Is there a recall on Garlic?
— Jay Alley
Vice President, Fresh Sales
We inadvertently caused some confusion when we ran our article, More Food Safety Lessons From Chinese Ginger Recall. Although the article talked about ginger and the headline said ginger, the subject line in our e-mail announcements mistakenly said garlic.
There was no recall on garlic from China or anywhere else. The recall was, as the article said, on ginger.
We regret the error and apologize for any confusion.
Many thanks to Jay and our other correspondents for bringing this matter to our attention.
