Chili Dog Recall

Though nothing I would buy, but someone in a rush may want to take note:

Dallas company recalls chili dogs after bacteria found

DALLAS A Dallas company is recalling packages of Double Chili Dogs with Cheese. Some of the product was distributed in Grand Rapids (Michigan).
Scobee Foods says the items potentially could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes (lis-TIR-ee-ya mon-o-sy-TAH-gin-eez), an organism that can cause fatal infections in young children or people with weakened systems.

The product was distributed through vending machines and convenience food stores. No illnesses have been reported.

The product sold in Michigan is in a clear plastic package with a blue and white label with the brand name "Deli." All are labeled as "net weight 8 oz." and have a sell date of January 8th, 2006. The lot code 335 is stamped in black ink in the top right corner of the label.

Consumers can return the product to the place of purchased or contact the company for a refund. The phone number is (888) 726-9424.

    One question... If you buy a pre-packaged chili dog at a convenience store, do you typically take it home to eat it later? Seriously...they think someone is going to return one??? Most people eat those in the car immediately upon leaving the store. That's kind of the point of pre-packaged stuff.

    As a friend of mine says, "3am is a GOOD time for a gas station hot dog!"

    UncleVic, you are so right. I would never eat one of these things either.

    On a more serious note, there was a story which broke in the news locally about contaminated dog food. A local vet got suspicious after 4 dogs died and many others got extremely ill from liver failure. The one common denominator was the food brand.

    If you feed your dog (or cat - the companies cat food is also affected) with Diamond brand food, check their web site.

    Apparently bags dated best by 01-March-07 through 11-June-07 with a G in the 11th or 12th number of the date code are tainted with aflatoxin. The aflatoxin is natural occurring and produced by the growth of aspergillus flavus on corn used to make the food.

    A few years back my old girlfriend and husband came to visit. We drank,drank, drunk. He walked to the BP and got the "Twin Chili Dogs". In the morning he boasted of his Lime Green poop.We also had consumed a grape Kool-Aid/ Vodka punch that might have added to the lime green color.Anyway,HTH. Merry Christmas!
