Why do we recall “Not Ready to Eat Frozen Products” with Listeria Contamination?
Is it because the customers will not follow the cooking instructions? I have heard that only 6 out of 10 follow the instruction. Do the customers actually check the microwave wattage again the strength of the microwave?
Is it because if they do follow the cooking instructions, they still may contact Listeria from using their hands to touch the product or packaging prior to cooking? Or is the cooking instructions on the packaging not adequate or the company does not have the supporting documentation to illustrate the necessary decimal reduction? Is it similar to the position with frozen peas where they may be just thawed and added to a Ready to Eat salad or just eaten?
When do you make the decision to close a plant or discontinue a product due to Listeria contamination? It can be incredibly difficult to eliminate Listeria from a processing facility once it has settled in for a stay. It could be very difficult to sell the facility to another processor if there is known Listeria contamination of the facility. Would this also be true for any processing equipment that was sold from the facility or it is a case of buyer beware. Or are you required to let the buyer know that there is an uncontrolled hazard present like with food
