Salmonella Fears Result in Nature‚Äôs Path Recalling Select Granola Products

Among select recalled products.

RICHMOND, British Columbia - Nature’s Path Organic Foods is voluntarily recalling a select group of its granola bar and granola cereal products due to potential Salmonella contamination. The recall is a precautionary measure because the peanuts in the products came from the Peanut Corporation of America, Blakely, Ga., which earlier this year distributed potentially contaminated products to more than 100 consignee firms for use as ingredients.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be blooded), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.

In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditic, and arthritis.

January Food Festivals Nationwide

We all love to eat and some of us love to cook! With this in mind, I came across a section at Delish.com called Food Festivals and Cook Offs that I had to share. They make a list of what they consider to be the best events around the country divided by month.

For January, they have everything from a seafood festival in Florida to wine and chocolate tasting event in New Jersey to a rib-cook off in California. There are also healthier events like an oatmeal festival in Colorado and a carrot festival in California, but I thought I’d mention the more fun stuff first.

Any way you slice it, it’s worth visiting the site to see what interesting events are going on in your area.


Foods That Will Make Your Skin Glow

NEW YORK- While we’ve been largely habituated to think about food only as far as what it can do for our taste buds - and don’t get me wrong, I won’t eat anything I find unappealing either - we also need to become more conscious of what food does for our bodies.

We generally know that all unprocessed or at least minimally-processed foods are good for us, especially organics if your budget allows, but different foods have particular properties that are especially significant to specific parts of our human biology.

Researchers have found that Vitamins A, C, E, and Bs are all excellent for promoting healthy skin from the cellular-level as well as performing other vital functions in the body. This article will discuss what each vitamin does, and what foods it can be found in. Some foods as you will see, contain a combination of these vitamins.
