Grocery Store Bread: Now With Metal Chunks!

4 Comments

At least 27 different SUPERMARKET BRANDS made by Sara Lee could be effected and have been recalled.

sara2 From the ‘Why We Like To Make Our Own Food” Dept: According to Reuters and other news sources a Sara Lee factory in Meridian, Mississippi has been spewing out loaves of bread potentially laced with chunks of metal. The company recalled the bread after they realized a flour sifter was damaged and possibly some metal had made its way into the bread. I take that to mean there were chunks of metal missing they couldn’t find. Not on the floor, not in the sifter(?) . . . D’oh! I guess its in the bread . . .

Even if you don’t think you’re a Sara Lee customer it may be important to understand and keep up with the recall. This is because Sara Lee made this bread for both regional and national groceries. The recall includes supermarket brands sold by Publix, Foodland, IGA, Wal-Mart and Piggly Wiggly among others. Plus as you may know with the recent dog food recall new products were added almost daily. While this incident should be far more contained and isolated, once people start looking closely who knows what else they’ll find.

Hopefully nobody ELSE ‘does it like Sara Lee’.

    I am a former bakery worker and was in control of testing the metal detectors and quality control. If the metal detectors do not work or do not reject the test sticks used for testing, the complete bakery line is shut down until it is repaired. Not much to worry about. The routine maintenance that is done, if at all, can show serious problems but the metal detectors kick out the bread if it is contaminated with even the smallest amount of metal or dense material.

    Well … what can I say. Awful, terrible. Many years ago a friend told me about an incident at a well-known Lemonade Factory, which made her suspicious about lemonade. Forever. A fellow worker was sweeping the floor and then poured out the crap into the lemonade machine. This happen 40 years ago.

    It doesn´t surprise me at all when I read about people finding strange items in food.
