The final food safety roundup focuses on the country that most of the first world gets influenced by. The one. The Only. The United States Of America.
The Chipotle Fiasco Continues
Just when Chipotle seems to have had their food poisoning scandal behind them (click here to find out more on their salmonella issue), the sales results from the most recent quarter show otherwise. The company down a staggering 22% at restaurants open more than a year. But the food poisoning scandal alone did not cause the issue. It seems that the issue with Chipotle is that they are having trouble delivering the food to the guests on time.
Maybe food poisoning isn’t a big deterrent for some Americans after all?

Dampened Christmas Spirits
More than 30 Christmas Baskets are being recalled from stores like Sam’s Club, Costco and catalogue-internet sales around the States after they found out that Blue Cheese Savoury Twists. These twist could have Salmonella because of an ingredient made with powdered milk. The recall was posted with the Food and Drug Administration by Houdini Inc. of Fullerton, CA, and did not name the powdered milk supplier whose product was used in the seasoning for the blue cheese snack crackers.
