FDA Recalling More Castlebarry Products ASAP
CNN | 7-22-07

Posted on 07/21/2007 3:21:30 PM PDT by Global2010

The FDA is compiling a full list right now for release by the end of the day.

The Castlebarrys Chili Suace for hot dogs showed out of 17 cans tested, 16 had botulism.

I have a link of the companies list as of 7-18-07.

Contact Castleberry's Snow's Brands Address:http://www.castleberrys.com/news_productrecall.asp


TOPICS: Culture/Society; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: chili; food; foodsafety; foodsupply; recall
I went down to get some chili today at the lil boat launch store and saw Cattle Drive Chili and was going to buy some as I remember something about it written at FR of those who eat it.

Then I looked at the company name and knew about the chili sauce recall but decided not to take a chance on the Cattle Drive Chili.

A few hours later sure enough the FDA was on CNN saying it is much worse and anything that was on that line to be canned is to be double bagged and tossed if opened.

I will repost the link and info so it is clickable.

Looks like the Castleberry stew I had saved for the pandemic flu will have to go out. :^(

I’ve never even heard of those brands. Do they not sell them on the west coast or what?

I was going to say I’ll stick with good old Hormel Chili made here in Minnesota, then I looked at the can. It states that it is distributed by Hormel Food Sales. Nowhere on the can does it say where it is actually made.

I just e-mailed their customer service asking them where their chili is manufactured.

I wish that information was included on all of our food.

If the company did that you would learn that they are making it out of disease ridden bandages and old toenail clippings imported from China. Then you wouldn’t buy it!

I love making my own chili, but sometimes I’m craving a quick chili dog and Hormel does the trick. Also requires diced onion, shredded cheddar and mustard.

Heaven on a paper plate! :)

Castleberry stew is pure grease. Dinty Moore is much better.

to paraphrase from Bismark:
Those who like laws, sausages or chili should not watch it being made.

BUT SERIOUSLY, I agree with you. There should be more information/
transparency by food manufacturers. But I do suspect there are
some things that might shock us!

Hormel Chili is good and dependable.
But occassionally I do indulge in a can of Wolf Brand Chili
(a Texas-Oklahoma brand).
And I do this knowing it will do plenty of damage to my arteries!

We don’t have that brand in my neck of the woods.

How is it different than Hormel? I love food, so you’ve made me curious.

Do they have Bush's up there in Uffdaville? Being as it comes in glass jars, you can whup up that quick chilidog and reseal the goods until midnight snack time, when you can do it all over again...

I wonder what foreign country mixed up the brew before putting it into the cans? I swear, it's not safe to eat any more. Period!

We rarely had these problems when we did it all in America!

Mmmmmmm...that looks good. Yeah, I’ve seen the Bush brand around as far as baked beans and such.

I’ll have to look for the glass jars of chili. Great idea!

I recall a number of years ago reading that Mr. Hormel gave large portions of his corporate profits to support advancing homosexual causes and such. Haven’t bought a Hormel product since. (I’m sure by me not buying chili or Spam his pocketbook is really hurting, but I just don’t want my money to support those kinds of causes if I know it).

Bush’s [no relation to the CIC] is a great product.

I love their beans once in awhile with hotdogs. :)

I just pray it’s all American produced ingredients.

“How is it different than Hormel?”

I’m no gourmand...but I think I can give a passionate amateur opinion
on comfort foods.

Before I ramble on too much, here’s the URL for Wolf Brand and a copy
of the famous Wolf Brand advertizing slogan:
http://www.wolfbrandchili.com/

“Neighbor, How long has it been since you had a big, thick, steaming bowl
of Wolf Brand Chili?
Well, that’s too long!”

(VOA’s commentary continues)
As for Hormel...it’s good, dependable (consistent) and doesn’t give
you the feeling that it might clog arteries with one bowl.

On the other hand, Wolf Brand Chili is more of what the afficianados of
chili would call a Texas-style chili: cubed cuts of sirloin for the
meat and (importantly) NO BEANS.
(But Wolf Brand does offer a “with beans” version for the non-purist).

When Wolf Brand was a small (probably “independent”) company product
for years, you did get the impression your arteries were in for a
pluggin’ because when you opened the can and inverted it over the pan...
a fairly solid slug of congealed fat/lard/chunked beef would solidly
plop down into the pan.
BUT...once warmed and consumed with saltines (or dipped with dry/near-burned toast)...
it was true comfort food. Especially on those nights in Oklahoma and
Northern Texas when winter temps might drop to -20F to -40F windchill factor.

Now it appears that Cargill owns Wolf Brand. I think I have noticed an
improvement in the cuts of meat and maybe a lessening of the solid fat
content over the past year or so. BUT fortunately, no diminuation in
taste or “comfort food” quality.

Amen. We haven't bought Hormel products for years either.

I think Mr. Hormel (or Ms. Hormel depending on how he was feeling that day) was also disgraced ex-President Clinton's pick for Ambassador to The Vatican.

I don't remember if the nomination was confirmed or not but I do remember there was some uproar about that.

I’ll second what ErnB has to say. I make a quick burrito with cheese and the Chili —— nuke it for a minute + or so.
(Cover the burrito with a paper towel while nuking to keep the splatter down.)
The glass jar makes for a real fine way to keep the chili from day to day until gone.

Looks mighty tasty! Thanks for the link.

I’m a no bean type gal myself and cubes of beef sound better than Hormel’s mushy stuff.

Might have to order some online.....

Oh, you people are making me so hungry I have to get off this darned computer and go feed myself. That burrito idea sounds delicious. :)

My husband and son are off camping so I have to fend for myself only this weekend. Guess I should feed the dogs too. LOL

I can also recommend the Bush's chili. It's a good, hearty (but not
hot or artery-clogging) form of chili.
Over a couple of months, I finished off probably five or six
jars of it thanks to a low "introductory" price.

Real chili does not have beans.

There are only three basic ingredients to chili, being beef, tomatoes and onion. Everything else is just seasoning.

Home made is best of course, but the Bush’s chili is very good, especially served ‘Cincinnati style’ (over spaghetti with shredded cheese and chopped onions)...MMMMMM!

According to my next door neighbor, an old Yankee, the local dairy used to take the white milk with the expired expiration date and turn it into chocolate milk (or ice cream).

Americans can cut corners too... :-)

I never had heard of Cattle Drive Chilli until I read about it here last week.

Who knew it would show up in the lil camping/boat launch store on the rural Oregon Coast?

Kroger is also known as Fred Meyer and they are on the list.

The owner of the lil store pulled the Chili as I called and told him about for sure recal of the product he had on the shelves witha big thanks for the heads up.

By your screen name I’ll make an assumption on where you live.
Sig Other has a sister, etc, living in a town about 150 mi
south of mpls on the west shore of the Miss. Nice people, BUT, their idea of a really good meal is a hot dish of
tuna/marshmallows at the church picnic. They visited us,
Sig Other put together a really nice little lunch which included chili (home made) buritos. We thought they’d die, no way could they handle it. We still LOL at the thought!!
I use the burrito thing the same way you do ——
emergency rations! (with a Coors Light)

When you google “hillary clinton” “food safety” you get more than 100,000 hits.

It’s a major platform for her and that was true when Team Clinton was in the White House (Tyson moving into all of the meat operations the FDA closed down.

When I read food safety articles I always remember Hillary and her many speeches on the topic.

been a lot of food safety related news recently.
