Good News for Microwave Popcorn Eaters

Sensient Flavors, the  flavoring company for a good portion of the microwave popcorns, is agreeing to reduce the use of the "popcorn lung" ingredient.
The trouble all started because of the use of diacetyl, which is used to flavor popcorn and is approved by the Food and Drug Administration, but has been blamed for ill health effects known as “popcorn lung.” - The Consumerist
I don't eat microwave popcorn. I have a Whirleypop. Best. Popcorn. Evah. 'nuff said.

Harry's Berries' Salsa, Beans Recalled Due to Botulism Risk

Head's up on a food recall that was available in our local area...

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is warning consumers not to eat Harry’s Berries Salsa (mild or hot flavors) or Harry’s Berries Dilled Beans, packed by Gean Farms, Inc., because they may have been improperly produced, making them susceptible to contamination with Clostridium botulinum. No illnesses have been linked to any of the affected products at this time.  
Gean Farms, Inc., of Oxnard, California, is voluntarily recalling the products after CDPH discovered they were produced without the required controls to prevent botulism toxin. Ingestion of botulism toxin from improperly processed foods can lead to serious illness and death. These products were sold under the Gean Farms, Inc. label and packaged in one-pint glass canning jars with screw-on metal lids, labeled as “Harry’s Berries Salsa” and “Harry’s Berries Dilled Beans.”  
These products do not contain production or date codes. Additional product information, including photos of affected products, can be found on the CDPH website. The products were sold between May 2011 and November 2012 at certified farmers markets in Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. - Marler Blog
