    Schools slow to get alerts about tainted food

    Schools slow to get alerts about tainted food

    Updated 4h 4m ago
    By Peter Eisler and Blake Morrison, USA TODAY

    WASHINGTON — Federal agencies that supply food for 31 million schoolchildren fail to ensure that tainted products are pulled quickly from cafeterias, a federal audit obtained by USA TODAY finds.

    The delays raise the risk of children being sickened by contaminated food, according to the audit by Congress' Government Accountability Office.

    In recent recalls, including one this year in which salmonella-infected peanut butter sickened almost 700 people, the government failed to disseminate "timely and complete notification about suspect food products provided to schools through the federal commodities program," the audit says.

    Such alerts sometimes took more than a week to reach schools, "during which time (schools) unknowingly served affected products."

    The audit focuses on the Food and Nutrition Service, or FNS, an arm of the Department of Agriculture that provides states and school systems with federally purchased commodities for school lunch and breakfast programs. The agency lacks systems to ensure that it is notified when the Food and Drug Administration begins a food-safety investigation that may lead to a recall, the audit says.

    Then, instead of determining in advance whether a suspect product was sent to schools — and advising those schools not to serve the food while the investigation is underway — the service sometimes doesn't begin that process until a recall announcement is made.

    "Further actions must be taken to strengthen the communications, planning and procedures needed to prevent recalled or contaminated foods from entering (school) cafeterias," Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., who chairs the Committee on Education and Labor, said of the findings.

    Auditors cited the recalls of 4,000 products containing peanuts from the Peanut Corp. of America. After salmonella was traced to the Georgia plant, the FDA announced a limited recall of products made there during a specific period. But the Food and Nutrition Service determined that its purchases from the plant were not made during that time and said on its website that schools weren't affected. Not until six days later, after the recall was expanded to cover products made on other dates, did the service tell schools to pull all the plant's products.

    As a result, the audit says, some of the 226 students who got diarrhea and other salmonella-related symptoms "may have consumed the (tainted) products in school." About 46 were hospitalized.

    Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says in a written response to the audit that ensuring the safety of school meals is of "utmost importance" and the department is developing a formal system to get advance notice when FDA is investigating food-safety concerns that could lead to recalls. He also promised new policies and guidelines to improve communication with states and schools.

    "It is absolutely essential that food recalls affecting schools are carried out quickly and effectively because children are most vulnerable to becoming seriously ill from food-borne illness outbreaks," says Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., who chairs the House Approprations subcommittee on agriculture.

    Recall -- Firm Press Release

    FDA posts press releases and other notices of recalls and market withdrawals from the firms involved as a service to consumers, the media, and other interested parties. FDA does not endorse either the product or the company.

    Nationwide Voluntary Product Recall of Neocate® Infant Specialized Formula Lot P91877

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 28, 2009 - Nutricia North America, Inc. ("Nutricia") has contacted customers to undertake the voluntary recall and replacement of one (1) lot of the specialized infant formula product, Neocate®. This recall involves a limited quantity of individual cans (approximately 3700) from Lot # P91877, and does not affect any other Neocate® products or lot numbers.

    Neocate® is a hypoallergenic dry powder formula packaged in 14 oz. cans distributed to pharmacies, health care professionals and consumers nationwide. Neocate® is not intended for general use and is usually given to infants in the care of health care professionals. The affected cans were distributed in commerce between September 1, 2009 and September 11, 2009.

    Nutricia has been informed by the manufacturer of Neocate® that, due to a one-time blending error, a limited quantity of the individual cans of Neocate® Infant (original formula) contain protein levels lower than that declared on the label.

    This limited formulation concern does not present any immediate risks of injury or other adverse health consequences. No adverse events have been reported as a result of this issue. The affected product from Lot # P91877 has a reduced protein level equivalent to 1.75g protein/100kcal - a shortfall of approximately 0.05g protein/100kcal based on the U.S. infant formula minimum requirement of 1.8g protein/100kcal. However, the affected product from Lot # P91877 continues to meet the minimum guidelines for protein established by the World Health Organization.

    Although short-term consumption of product from the affected batch is very unlikely to cause immediate nutritional issues, longer term consumption might influence the healthy growth curve in certain infants.

    Because the quality and safety of Nutricia's products and the well-being of its customers are the company's primary concerns, the voluntary recall has been initiated. The Food and Drug Administration has been apprised of this recall. The company apologizes for any inconvenience to our customers and consumers.

    Recommended Action to be Taken by the User
    The affected products have the Lot # P91877; this number can be found at the bottom of each can and on the right hand side of the case label.

    Parents, caregivers, and health care professionals who have questions or concerns related to the consumption of the affected product are advised to contact the Nutricia North America Customer Helpline at 1-800-365-7354, option 8-6061. We can be reached during normal business hours Monday through Friday from 8:30am EDT to 5:00pm EDT.and for special extended hours 8:30 am EDT to 8:00 pm EDT on Monday and Tuesday, September 28 and 29th.

    Working with Nutricia, the manufacturer of Neocate® has implemented appropriate corrective and preventative actions, to ensure that this blending error in the manufacture of the product is not repeated. Nutricia will continue to carefully monitor the situation and follow-up with its customers to ensure prompt replacement of the affected product.

    For more information please visit www.nutricia-na.com or www.neocate.com.

    For further information regarding this release, please contact Meredith Klein, Edelman PR at (312) 233-1236.
