State advises consumer caution on potentially tainted canned goods
By Stephen Smith, Globe Staff
Massachusetts health authorities today advised consumers to discard any recalled products made by Castleberry's Food Co., even if the canned products look and smell safe.
Four people in Indiana and Texas fell ill with botulism after eating Castleberry's Hot Dog Chili Sauce; no botulism cases have been reported in Massachusetts.
The company is recalling a long list of products, sold under a variety of brand names, including chili with and without beans, beef stew, corned beef hash, and barbecue beef. Some dog food made by the company is also being recalled. For a full list of the recalled products, go to http://www.castleberrys.com/news_productrecall.asp.
Products found on Massachusetts store shelves are being removed and destroyed, the state Department of Public Health said.
