Bagged Salad Recalled in 10 States Due to Possible Listeria Contamination

Condé Nast

There’s a large recall affecting bagged salads in 10 states. Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc. voluntarily initiated the bagged salad recall affecting four brands due to the risk of listeria contamination, according to an announcement on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website. The company decided to recall the salad products on October 29, 2021, after a bag of salad tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes, the pathogen that causes the potentially foodborne illness listeriosis. 

Specifically, the salad recall includes specific lots of four bagged garden salad products produced by Dole and sold under multiple brand names. The affected products include Dole Garden Salad (24 oz), Marketside Classic Salad (24 oz), Kroger Brand Garden Salad (12 oz), and Salad Classics Garden Salad (12 oz). 

The pre-washed and ready-to-eat salads contain iceberg lettuce, shredded carrot, and red cabbage. They were distributed in 10 Eastern and Southern states in U.S., including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia. 

Not all bags of these products are being recalled—only a “limited number of cases” is affected, according to the FDA notice. All of the recalled bags have a best if used by date of October 25, 2021, meaning they should no longer be available at grocery stores. However, consumers who have already purchased the salads may still have them in their fridges. 

Officials discovered the risk of contamination when a random sample test of a single bagged garden salad, conducted by the Department of Agriculture in Georgia, came back positive for Listeria monocytogenes. There are no reports of illness associated with the recalled products, according to the FDA. Dole describes the salad recall as “precautionary.” The company noted that it’s working closely with regulatory officials on the issue and that no other products made or sold by Dole are affected by the recall.

CDC Reports 28x More Fully Vaxxed Than Unvaxxed Were Hospitalized With COVID June-Sept

Iowa Climate Science Education

A new CDC study (inadvertently?) finds 28 times more fully vaccinated patients (5,213) were hospitalized with COVID from June to September than the unvaccinated with prior infection (189) in nine U.S. states.

The CDC was apparently hoping this study would demonstrate the superiority of vaccination relative to natural immunity from a prior infection so they could compel more Americans to get vaccinated. It may have backfired.

Out of 201,269 people hospitalized with “COVID-19-like illness” from January to September (2021) in 9 states, just 1,020 (0.5%) of the hospitalizations occurred in unvaccinated people previously infected with COVID. This is a remarkably small number considering the CDC has estimated 120.2 million Americans (36.8% of the US population) had already been infected with COVID by late May.

Out of these 1,020 unvaccinated COVID patients landing in the hospital from January to September, 89 (8.7%) had tested positive for COVID…

UK Study finds Covid spreads just as easily from infected people who are Vaccinated

Iowa Climate Science Education

Covid, Coronavirus, Bioweapons.A new study shows vaccinated people are about 40% less likely to catch Covid, but if or when they do catch it they pose the same risk to the people close to them regardless of their vaccination status.

The study also confirmed that vaccinated immunity was falling within three months of vaccination. Presumably, if a vaccinated person is 40% less likely to catch Covid in the first place, then being vaccinated will reduce the odds of bringing the SARS virus home on any given day. But given that protection wanes so quickly and Covid has such a high exponential rate of spread, a temporary 40% reduction of the risk of catching the virus is not game-changing.

The Imperial College study shows that draconian rules isolating the unvaccinated from the vaccinated are not medically justified. Put another way, an unvaccinated person infected with Covid is no more likely to spread the…

Stephen Miller, a former senior adviser to former President Donald Trump, said Friday that the notion of compensating illegal immigrant families with $450,000 for the trauma of being separated at the southern border is “insane.”

Miller’s reply was to Brian Kilmeade with Fox News, when he asked Miller his opinion on the report that the Biden administration is reportedly contemplating $450,000 in compensation for illegal immigrant families who found themselves separated at the southern border under Trump. “Well, first of all, that’s insane,” Miller answered.

“Secondly, this issue is widely misunderstood. You’re talking about individuals who commit a federal crime, who were criminally prosecuted and who, during the pendency of their incarceration, were separated from their families. There are literally millions of American citizens who have been criminally prosecuted and separated from their families.”

Miller also noted that Vice President Kamala Harris, in her former role as a prosecutor, “presided over many low-level drug offense prosecutions. There are thousands and thousands of families living in her home state of California who were separated, not for days, but more months or years for drug offenses.”

“Are they getting any kind of reparations payment? Any kind of settlement? I don’t think so,” Miller said. “No American citizen who goes to jail is then given reparations, let alone half a million dollars per family member. Nothing like this has ever been attempted in the history of the world.”​

Miller went on to say that family separation “was a choice that they made,” and one that “happens all the time” within the immigration process and said that “all of this nonsense, about family separation is a lie.”

“Let’s get to the heart of this issue. Donald Trump shut down child trafficking. Donald Trump shut down child smuggling. Donald Trump saved the lives of tens of thousands from the horrors of being put into the hands of coyotes, sexually assaulted, raped, brutalized, and beaten,” he said.

Miller continued saying, “How many kids are sold into sex trafficking? How many kids are sold into labor trafficking? How many kids are raped and beaten as a result of Joe Biden’s policies? He is a moral monster. What he is doing has a heart for no one but the Democrat Party and its desire, they believe, to import voters, period. That’s what this is about.”

What are your thoughts America, is Biden a moral disaster?

Petition: Support the Big Cat Public Safety Act

The Big Cat Public Safety Act is a critical animal protection bill that would protect thousands of big cats from suffering. Big cats belong in the wild, not in someone’s backyard. In her natural habitat, a tiger’s territory stretches for miles. She can’t thrive when she’s chained in a basement or confined to a barren cage. It’s time for our elected officials to pass the Big Cat Public Safety Act into law.

Urge your federal legislators to support the Big Cat Public Safety Act. 

Big cats such as lions and tigers are wild animals and belong in the wild. Yet today, there are more tigers in captivity in the United States than in the wild. Individuals and families often purchase them as babies to be kept as pets, ignoring just how large the animals grow. As a result, many are left to waste away in cages in backyards and basements. The Big Cat Public Safety Act would help end this cruelty. 

The Big Cat Public Safety Act amends the Captive Wild Safety Act to prohibit the private possession of lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs, jaguars, cougars, or any hybrids of these species. People who already possess these animals may keep them but must register them so first responders and animal control officers are aware of their presence in the community. 

What the Big Cat Public Safety Act will do 

  • Prohibits the private possession of big cats  
  • People who currently possess big cats must register them with local first responders and animal control officers  
  • Prohibits exhibitors (such as circuses and zoos) from allowing direct contact between the public and big cats, including activities like cub petting and bottle feeding  
  • Prohibits private individuals from breeding lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs, jaguars, cougars, or any hybrid of these species 
Big Cat Public Safety Act

Did you know…

  • Businesses like roadside zoos that profit from offering cubs for photo opportunities or petting can legally call themselves sanctuaries or rescues  
  • Once they’re too big for cub petting, many of the cubs are sold into the wild pet trade while others end up on the black market to be sold for their body parts 
  • Ongoing inbreeding and cruel confinement results in numerous health problems for big cats, including deformed paws, hip dysplasia, and cataracts 
  • Since 1990, there have been nearly 400 dangerous incidents involving captive big cats in 46 states and the District of Columbia. Five children and 20 adults lost their lives and others lost limbs or suffered traumatic injuries
