Bar-S Hot Dog Recall Affects All 50 States

Bar-S Foods is recalling more than 370,000 pounds of its hot dogs and corn dogs because they may contain listeria, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced on Tuesday. Listeria can cause an infection with symptoms including fever, muscle aches and convulsions in anyone, though it’s primarily a risk for elderly people, babies and those who are pregnant or have weak immune systems.   The recalled hot dogs and corn dogs have not been proven to contain listeria, but Bar-S is recalling them as a precautionary measure, the Food Safety and Inspection Service reports. It’s a good thing they’re not a better-known brand like Nathan’s or Hebrew National hot dogs, because we need some way to practice our spiral cut this summer.  If you’ve bought any of the recalled products, Bar-S recommends you throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Acute chorioamnionitis is characterized by neutrophilic infiltration and inflammation at the maternal fetal interface. It is a relatively common complication of pregnancy and can have devastating consequences including preterm labor, maternal infections, fetal infection/inflammation, fetal lung, brain, and gastrointestinal tract injury. In this review, we will discuss current understanding of the pathogenesis, immunobiology, and mechanisms of this condition. Most commonly, acute chorioamnionitis is a result of ascending infection with relatively low-virulence organisms such as the Ureaplasma species. Furthermore, recent va...

Springfield Smoked Fish of Springfield, MA is expanding their voluntary recall of smoked fish products because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

They were sold nationwide to food service operators, so consumers likely would find them in a store or a restaurant, the CDC said.

CONCLUSION: Infections caused by L. monocytogenes were uncommon but could cause severe sepsis and mortality, especially in susceptible populations. Our study focused on neurological involvement and severe invasive forms of listeriosis. Neuroinvasive forms were the most important risk factors for severe illness but not for mortality.

Scobie et al. recently reported a 10-year review of non-pregnant listeriosis cases in England.1 No case of cutaneous listeriosis was reported in this large cohort of 1,357 patients. Aside gastro-enteritis and invasive infections (septicemia, neurolisteriosis and maternal-neonatal infections), Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) can also be responsible for other focal infections, including bone and joint infection, biliary, pulmonary, or urinary tract infections.2 Skin infections have also been reported before, either as a part of disseminated infection in neonates —a condition known as “granulomatosis infantiseptica&rd...
