ALERT: Food Recall Due to Listeria Bacteria + Avian Bird Flu Outbreak

Hi everyone. I had a something different planned for today, but that’s been detoured, as I wanted to quickly alert you to two public health situations you need to be aware of in my latest video:

  • Dole packaged salads have been recalled due to the Listeria bacteria. Listeria symptoms include diarrhea and other gastrointestinal issues. It is treated with antibiotics, however, this current outbreak has already caused one death. The outbreak has been going on since July 2015, but it’s only recently this month that the outbreak has been traced back to Dole.

  • Turkey products are in short supply due to the spread of avian influenza (bird flu) among turkey populations. Although this type of flu is not common in humans, it is still possible for a person to catch. It is airborne — spread through coughing & sneezing. Please be aware of this, as avian flu is prevalent at this time.
