    Maryland ban on arsenic in chicken feed takes effect

    Maryland has become the first state to ban an arsenic additive in chicken feed.

    A law banning the additive is among new state laws taking effect on Tuesday.

    Last year, state lawmakers passed a bill banning the use of Roxarsone, a chemical used to help the birds grow and fight parasites.

    Pfizer Inc., which distributes Roxarsone, stopped selling the chemical in July after a U.S. Food and Drug Administration study found higher levels of inorganic arsenic in chicken treated with the additive than those that were not. Arsenic is a known carcinogen.

    Opponents said the measure wasn't needed because the company voluntarily suspended sales of the product.

    Fructose Can Cause Overeating, Reveals Brain Scan Study

    For the first time, scientists used imaging tests to show fructose can trigger brain changes that may lead to overeating.

    After drinking a fructose beverage, the brain doesn’t register the same feeling of being full as it does when simple glucose is consumed, researchers found.

    While the study is small and does not prove that fructose or its relative, high-fructose corn syrup, can cause obesity, experts say it adds evidence that may play a role. These sugars often are added to processed foods and beverages, and consumption has risen dramatically since the ‘70s, along with obesity. A third of U.S. children and teens, as well as more than two-thirds of adults, are obese or overweight.

    String of Smoked Salmon Products Recalled for Listeria Potential

    Late last December, a Greek fish company announced that it was recalling its cold smoked salmon – sold in the United States – for potential Listeria contamination. This recall marked the fifth multistate market withdrawal of smoked salmon for the same problem since the beginning of November, 2012.

    The product, manufactured by Delifish, S.A. of Thessaloniki, Greece, was sold in retail stores in the U.S., according to the recall announcement posted on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website. The 11 states to which the product may have been distributed include California, Virginia, Ohio, Illinois, Florida, Georgia, Texas, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The fish may also have been sold in Puerto Rico.

    The problem was discovered after samples from multiple batches of the product tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes, according to the recall notice.

    Fresh Produce ‘Highly Likely’ Source of Canadian E. coli Outbreak

    Fresh produce is now suspected to be the source of an E. coli outbreak that has sickened at least 15 people in northeastern Canada, said a top health official Wednesday.

    “Our environmental and epidemiological investigations suggest a common source related to a produce item,” said Dr. Frank Atherton, deputy chief medical officer of health for Nova Scotia in an emailed statement.

    Of the 15 E. coli O157:H7 infections known to be linked to the outbreak, 6 occurred in New Brunswick, 5 in Nova Scotia and 4 in Ontario. Five more illnesses in Nova Scotia are suspected to be part of the outbreak. Samples from these patients are currently under analysis at the national microbiology lab in Winnipeg, says Atherton.

    Let's hope that is the end of it!

    Missouri Artisan Cheese Recalled for E. coli Risk

    A Missouri creamery is recalling 250 pounds of cheese because it may be contaminated with E. coli.

    Homestead Creamery of Jamesport, MO issued a voluntary recall of a batch of its Flory’s Favorite cheese, a 60-day aged cheese made from raw milk.

    “Preliminary test results received from the Missouri State Health Laboratory indicate the cheese may be contaminated with Shiga-Toxin producing E.coli, which can lead to food borne illness,” announced the State Milk Board and the Missouri Department of Agriculture in a press release Monday. The agencies said the state lab is conducting further testing to confirm its findings.

    Cheese subject to the recall was sold directly from Homestead Creamery, located in the Amish settlement at Jamesport, and may also have been sold at the following retail locations in Missouri and Iowa:

    - HyVee in Liberty, MO
    - HyVee in Trenton, MO
    - Benedict Builders’ Farm in Knob Noster, MO
    - Milton Creamery in Milton, IA

    Packages subject to the market withdrawal bear “Packed On 210″ on packaging.

    Homestead’s license to sell milk in Missouri has been temporarily suspended.

    In the news......

    Each year in the United States, approximately two million pounds of manure produced by livestock contaminate groundwater and soil. As early as 2002, the U.S. Geological Survey reported antibiotics in 48 percent of streams tested nationwide. Almost half of the streams tested were downstream from agricultural operations. This widespread contamination of soil and water increases the risk of antibiotic resistance in humans. And this means that we are prime targets for a global pandemic of supergerms.

    Health officials say symptoms of E. coli infection could occur up to 10 days after exposure and can include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea and vomiting.

    Consumers with questions about the recall can call 1-888-220-5955, or visit the company's website for more information.
