Thousands of bags of soy flour, which is used to make human and animal feed products, are being recalled due to possible Salmonella contamination.
Thumb Oilseed Producer’s Cooperative of Ubly, Michigan, discovered the possible contamination during routine sampling. Bacteria were found in finished product and the manufacturing environment, reports the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The recall affects 2,623 bags and totes of soybean flour, plus 924 small loads of bulk soy meal, according to FDA.
The soy flour was distributed under the names “Nex Soy” and “Soy Beginnings” to a limited group of wholesale customers in Illinois, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, New Hampshire and Canada from November 2010 through September 2011.
Thumb Oilseed has contacted those customers, and no illnesses have been reported to date.
