Staphylcoccla enterotoxins is caused by a staph infection-type bacteria and can result in food poisoning if eaten. The food poisoning occurs when food contains the toxin-producing staphylococcus aureus bacteria. If ingested, the toxins can cause adverse effects in as little as 30 minutes, and can take up to six hours to set in, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Effects include a wide range of gastrointestinal reactions from nausea to cramps and diarrhea. All effects last anywhere between one to three days.
No reports of possible food poisoning have been filed yet, but since the recall was only issued within the last 48 hours, there may be a few cases that are yet unknown. Murry’s and the USDA did jump on this recall quickly and hope it will result in fewer instances of actual food poisoning. If you suspect you are having symptoms or have questions, all agencies are referring people to their own doctors.
If you have some of this in your fridge or freezer, look for these specifics: a “best buy” date of August 9, 2015, a USDA inspection identifier mark of P-516. Look specifically on Bell and Evans 12 ounce boxes of Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets and 10 ounce boxes of Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breasts.
Approximately 31,689 pounds of the product have been placed on the recall list for the bacteria that is found on the skin and noses of healthy humans and animals. To prevent contamination, it is best to follow proper food handling procedures: keep surfaces and kitchens clean and sanitized and don’t prepare food if you have infection in your eyes or nose or with open sores on your hands.
