    Giant Foods Issues Potato Product Recall
    Bacterial Contamination Fears Spur Recall Order

    POSTED: 7:50 pm EST February 22, 2009
    UPDATED: 10:42 am EST February 23, 2009


    BALTIMORE -- Two grocers have issued a recall on some potato products.

    Giant Food and Stop & Shop have pulled 20 oz. bags of Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Simply Potatoes Homestyle Slices and Simply Potatoes Red Potato Wedges.

    The products were recalled by Northern Star Co., a subsidiary of food processor Michael Foods Inc. The recalled items all have "use by" dates on their packages ranging from March 29 to April 3, 2009.

    The products may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that can cause flu-like symptoms, such as high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. The bacteria can be very damaging for pregnant women or those with weakened immune systems.

    Customers who have purchased these products should discard any unused portions and bring the receipts to their stores for a full refund.

    Giant Food operates 182 supermarkets in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia.

    Stop & Shop operates stores in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey and Maine.

    Well, I'm happy to say that this will not affect me. I grow my own taters, and I still have a bunch from last year and I still have two full feed-sized bags of sweet tateas that I got from my aunt.

    Well, I don't grow my own, but they are readily available most of the time here.
