Top Ten Food Safety Stories of 2009 Published by Food Safety News
WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Food Safety News, the web-based newspaper that covers all things food safety, today published its list of the top ten food safety stories of the year.
1. New York Times reporter Michael Moss introduced readers to Stephanie Smith, a children's dance instructor from Minnesota who is partially paralyzed from E. coli O157:H7. In Moss's Oct. 4 story, it was this paragraph in particular that made readers burn: "The frozen hamburgers that the Smiths ate, which were made by the food giant Cargill, were labeled 'American Chef's Selection Angus Beef Patties.' Yet confidential grinding logs and other Cargill records show that the hamburgers were made from a mix of slaughterhouse trimmings and a mash-like product derived from scraps that were ground together at a plant in Wisconsin. The ingredients came from slaughterhouses in Nebraska, Texas and Uruguay, and from a South Dakota company that processes fatty trimmings and treats them with ammonia to kill bacteria." Stephanie, whose spirit is inspirational, has sued Cargill for at least $100 million.
2. Nevada resident Linda Rivera was among those most severely injured by Nestlé chocolate-chip cookie dough contaminated with E. coli O157:H7. Linda's plight was described on Sept. 1 by the Washington Post, one of many times in 2009 that victims of foodborne illnesses and their families summoned the courage to tell difficult but compelling stories. In doing so, they caught the attention of lawmakers and helped prompt the U.S. House of Representatives to pass the 2009 Food Safety Act. However, the Senate has yet to approve S. 510, its version of proposed new federal powers and food-industry reforms.
3. Peanut Corporation of America caused consumers pain and suffering, the government time and money, and was responsible for the most costly food recall in history - an amazing amount of damage for a small, largely invisible operation. At least 3,918 separate products made with PCA peanut butter or peanut paste were recalled, costing food companies and the government more than $1 billion. Now in bankruptcy with its entire operation shut down, PCA has yet to provide just compensation for those it sickened with Salmonella Typhimurium. About 150 claims have been filed with the bankruptcy court for payment from the company's $12 million product liability policy. PCA's distribution of Salmonella-contaminated product led to nine deaths among the 714 confirmed cases of Salmonella in 46 states.
4. Salmonella contamination was once unheard of in ground beef recalls, but in 2009 there were three. The strains involved -- Salmonella Typhimurium, Salmonella Newport, and Salmonella Typhimurium DT104 -- are all resistant to commonly prescribed drugs, meaning more victims had to be hospitalized and more treatments failed. Just two companies were responsible for a total of 1.314 million pounds of beef tainted with this dangerous Salmonella. Denver-based King Soopers Inc., which recalled 466,236 pounds on July 22, and Fresno-based Beef Packers Inc., which recalled 825,769 pounds on Aug. 6 and another 22,723 pounds on Dec. 4. Cargill's repeat performance in the scary Salmonella category is especially troubling because of its involvement up and down the food chain. For example, Cargill's canola oil, which it sends to feedlots to fatten cattle, was banned from the United States in October because of Salmonella contamination.
5. If the Obama administration had gotten around to nominating a new under secretary for food safety - an important position that's been vacant all year -- perhaps the new appointee might have had something to say after USA Today reported that Jack in the Box and other fast-food outlets have higher standards than the National School Lunch program. In a series that examined the U.S. Department of Agriculture's own hype about the lunch program, USA Today showed that meat provided to school children not only does not "meet or exceed" standards for commercial products, but chains like Jack in the Box, Burger King, McDonald's and Costco have far more rigorous standards than Uncle Sam. The big retailers "test the ground beef they buy five to 10 times more often than the USDA tests beef made for schools during a typical production day," the newspaper reported. "And the limits Jack in the Box and other big retailers set for certain bacteria in their burgers are up to 10 times more stringent than what the USDA sets for school beef." Our memories of eating in the school cafeteria are not all that pleasant and, thanks to USA Today, we now know why. USDA says it will work on the problem next year.
6. To say "mistakes were made" during an outbreak of a Hepatitis A at a McDonald's restaurant in Milan, IL is putting it mildly. First and foremost, food workers must be vaccinated for Hepatitis A. When they're not, the potential for things to go very wrong, very quickly is enormous and that's what happened in Milan, a community in the Quad Cities area on the Illinois-Iowa border. The local hospital testing a McDonald's worker for Hepatitis A mailed -- rather than faxing or phoning -- the positive results to the Rock Island County Health Department. Then the letter went unopened for two weeks, apparently because someone was on vacation. Next, a McDonald's manager did nothing after a food service worker told the franchise she had contracted Hepatitis A. It was only when the Rock Island County Health Department figured out a McDonald's worker had Hepatitis A that the restaurant was closed and cleaned, and the public informed. Meanwhile, 10,000 people had been exposed.
7. Organic Pastures, the California company that has made raw milk a cause, is under a criminal plea agreement not to sell unpasteurized milk across state lines. Late in 2009, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration essentially sought to corral Organic Pastures when it went into federal civil court to make the agreement reached in the criminal proceedings permanent. In response, Organic Pastures says it's got its hands full trying to supply California outlets and no longer cares about fulfilling any orders it gets from the other 49 states.
8. Ground beef contaminated with E. coli is a story that never seems to end. In 2009, special notoriety goes to Colorado's Greeley Beef Plant, now owned by JBS USA, and Fairbank Farms in Asheville, NY. Each managed to offer at least a half million pounds of E. coli-contaminated ground beef to an unsuspecting public. The June 24-28 JBS and Halloween Fairbank Farms recall were both associated with outbreaks of dangerous E. coli O157:H7 bacteria. JBS is responsible for at least 23 confirmed cases in eight states and Fairbank Farms scored 26 confirmed cases in eight states. Not huge by E. coli outbreak standards, but all too typical.
9. A Chinese court officially accepted the first lawsuit seeking compensation for that country's 2008 tainted milk scandal, opening up the possibility of a flood of legal actions. A district court in the northern city of Shijiazhuang will hear the suit filed against the Sanlu Group, the dairy firm linked to the poisoned milk controversy, by an unnamed parent of a child who was sickened. At least six infants died and nearly 300,000 became ill last year by milk powder contaminated with the industrial chemical melamine, which was added to give the appearance of a higher protein content.
10. The Center for Science in the Public Interest's release of a report on the 10 riskiest foods regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration sparked a full-fledged food fight. Leafy greens, eggs and tuna topped the list, followed by oysters, ice cream, tomatoes and sprouts. The study, which analyzed 17 years of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other sources, generated significant national media interest, buzz from blogs and local news outlets and drew harsh criticism from the food industry. Food industry groups - especially those representing foods included in the report - criticized the findings and expressed concern that the publicity would hurt the industries listed.

PepsiCo India s major Snacks and Soft Drink Manufacturers confirmed that it has applied for use of Stevia( natural sweetener obtained from plants ) in place of sugar as sweetener .

Eat cookies whenever you want--and still lose weight! But don't picture sugar cookies with sprinkles and gingerbread men, these are not your regular cookies. Dr. Seigal has created the "Cookie Diet"--which is a weight-loss system that helps control hunger with cookies and shakes. Creating in 1975 by Dr. Seigal in Miami, FL to help his patients curb their hunger and stay on their diets. Are you, like me, still thinking: but with cookies? There is are other "Cookie Diet" brands that all set out to do the same with as Dr. Seigal's, like Smart for Life and Hollywood's Cookie Diet.
The cookie diets encourages you to eat cookies spaced out through the day. These cookies are prepackaged and contain things like glycerin and protein powder. They want you to eat these cookies instead of breakfast and lunch, then a a reasonable dinner of lean protein and vegetables. centered on a single food go back for decades, remember the cabbage soup diet, or the yogurt diet, even the Special K Diet today.
But do they work?
All nutritionists and fitness trainers say that if you take in less calories than you burn in a day you will lose weight--maybe not dramatically, but weight will be lost. However, there is a long list of concerns with the cookie diet. Some nutritionists say that eating fewer than 1,000 calories a day can throw your body into "conservation" mode, slowing your metabolism down drastically and really slowing down weight-loss.
Dinner and late night snacker are the biggest issues for dieters--they make it through the day, but by dinner they are starving, hence the overeating and binging. This is unbalanced nutrition, making it very hard to get all the servings of fruits and vegetables your body needs.
They also note that although protein curbs hunger, the 5 grams that are in the cookies are not enough. They also feel like cookie diets do not teach people good eating habits for the future. There is no way anyone will stay on the cookie diet their whole life, therefore it is important to learn good eating habits from the beginning.
Although I am no nutritionist, I do practice healthy eating habits and am consious about what I consume and I would never, no matter what was said about this cookie diet, think it was a good idea. America needs to stop looking for the quick fix, but in the time at the gym or on the pavement, or in your own living room! All that we know about exercise and diet there are no excuses for not leading a healthy lifestyle, or at least trying to.

Currently, food retail chains are obtained licenses either from civic bodies or state governments.
The change is one of the key regulations in the draft on an integrated food safety & licensing policy finalized recently by the authority.
According to the draft regulation, to get a license certain preconditions on safety, sanitary and hygiene standards have to be met.
The aim is to target food services which have a high potential of contamination and hazard. For petty food businesses registration with the authorities at the state level will be necessary. Licensing from the central authority will be required for large businesses, it is learnt

“Our new initiatives build on about 40 packaging reduction projects completed in 2008 and reflect the way we continuously look for means to improve the packaging of our products and reduce our environmental footprint,” said Daniel S. Miller, Research and Development manager of packaging development at Hormel Foods. “In this process, we work with our suppliers to find innovative solutions.”
New packaging reduction highlights and projected savings include:
The elimination of extra room in the Jennie-O Turkey Store® burgers carton is expected to have an annual paperboard savings of more than 175,000 pounds.
Lloyd’s® barbeque tubs no longer have an extra paper sleeve. This modification will eliminate enough solid waste to fill 22 garbage trucks and save more than 660,000 pounds of paper fiber annually.
Reducing the thickness of the glass used to produce each jar of Hormel® bacon bits will produce annual material savings around 411,000 pounds.
Reconfiguration of the shipping box for Hormel® Compleats® microwave meals removed 23 percent of the material required to make the previous corrugated packaging box and generated an annual materials savings of 1.2 million pounds. In addition, changes to the size of the carton flaps of the product and reallocation of materials resulted in annual savings of more than 980 million pounds of solid waste.
Hormel® party trays packaging was redesigned to eliminate the need for shrink wrap to produce an annual savings of approximately 100,000 pounds. The corrugated case to ship the product will be smaller, resulting in a corrugated material savings of more than 174,000 pounds per year.
Redesign of the shipping box for Hormel® pork ribs, butts and bone-in offers more strength while creating an annual corrugated materials savings of about 2.4 million pounds.
Reducing the height, width and length of each box used to ship Hormel® pepperoni, increased the amount of product on each pallet, saving materials and reducing the number of trailers needed each year. The anticipated savings is 188,000 pounds of wood fiber annually and 49,000 pounds of corrugated.
Changes to the shipping of canned food products made by Hormel Foods will result in efficiencies that reduce the number of pallets needed annually by 14,573 and require less plastic and bundling film.
These packaging reduction projects are part of the overall corporate responsibility strategy and goals set by Hormel Foods.

Kraft's bid is unchanged from its indicated offer worth 300 pence in cash and 0.2589 new Kraft share for each Cadbury share, according to an advertisement in the Wall Street Journal.
Cadbury has so far rejected Kraft's cash and shares bid, first disclosed three months ago, forcing Kraft to turn hostile in early November and go directly to Cadbury shareholders in its aim to create the world's largest confectionery group.
Kraft launched its bid in early September which currently values Cadbury shares at 713 pence or 9.8 billion pounds, but Cadbury shares are currently at 801.50 pence reflecting hopes for a higher bid from Kraft or the emergence of rival bids.

Fortunately for Bali, the head of one of India's largest food companies, Britannia Industries, the two are rarely in direct competition. But her point is, she says, that in a financial crisis consumers will dial back on luxuries in favour of necessities. "Research has shown that when the economy is in a recession, consumers change their habits."Luckily for Britannia then, it derives some 90 percent of its revenue from biscuits; a food-stuff that - thanks to its modest price-tag - has proved remarkably recession-proof."Given the low unit price of products that we sell, especially things like cakes and cream biscuits, which are seen to be a little more indulgent, consumers often say; ‘I am cutting on everything I don't need to cut down on the cream biscuit or cookie they used to buy'."With a market cap of $840.2m (38.8bn rupees), Britannia is one of India's most prominent food companies, with ambitions of replicating that success around the world. As a result, while rival companies have rushed to trim their overheads in the downturn, Britannia has spread its wings. Bali, who has held the reins since January 2005, is here in Dubai to push the firm's local interests.For the Britannia CEO - who recently took the top spot in a Business Today's list of ‘The 25 Most Powerful Women in Indian Business' - the Middle East, with its giant expat Indian population, is a natural fit."In 2007 when we were looking at markets to extend and expand in, the Middle East was quite an attractive proposition because of all the demographic and socio-graphics associated with it," she says."This is an area with a young population, lots of money - or so everybody believed. A lot of the products we were doing in India were relevant to this market."And Britannia has been quick to back its faith with cash."Our investment of over AED75m in the region in the two years since we've expanded here shows our commitment and dedication," she says. "The UAE is particularly significant for us given the progress it has enjoyed over the last decade."According to Bali, the UAE's biscuit market is worth an estimated AED500m a year.
Around a fifth of all biscuits bought in the GCC are eaten in the UAE and its residents gorge through an average of 6kg of biscuits and wafers per capita each year.In a bid to tap into this demographic, Britannia in 2007 acquired a stake in two GCC biscuit and wafer companies, UAE-based Strategic Food International Co (SFIC) and Oman-based Al Sallan Food Industries Co.SFIC's annual revenue tops AED2.57bn and the firm boasts an approximately 14.5 percent share of the UAE market. Britannia has said it plans to more than double that in the next few years - no easy task in the context of the current global recession and the drop in consumer spending.For Bali, the chief challenges are two-fold: namely, decreasing demand and the rising price of commodities. The price of sugar, for example, has risen more than 90 percent in the last year alone."
This is a challenging time for us; there is no doubt about that," she admits. "The whole global economy has an impact everywhere - especially in the UAE and specifically in Dubai, where a lot of people have simply vanished because the jobs have vanished."Still, Bali remains bullish on the region's potential, investing AED4m to revamp and relaunch SFIC's flagship Nutro label, which sells a variety of biscuit and wafer products.In total, 50 products under the Nutro label have had their recipes updated. Internationally-acclaimed designer Jane Thorn, who has previously worked with Sainsbury's and Heinz, was brought in to give the packaging and branding a facelift."We have done a lot of promotional activity," says Bali. "At a time like this everybody is looking at what is the best offering. Several of our large brands have seen a combination of sampling and promotions and are driving better value from a consumer point of view, as opposed to other available alternatives."In-store product sampling and advertising has also produced a good return for the company. Following more than 125 sampling sessions over seven weekends in major outlets in the UAE this summer, sales of Britannia's products in these outlets grew by nearly 300 percent. It may be a recession but it seems the fundamental laws of marketing haven't changed.

, a small-sized manufacturer of bakery products in Ludhiana, Punjab.Other concernsApart from the levy of purchase tax, small flour owner mills are also concerned about the decrease in allocation of wheat to Chandigarh under the Public Distribution Scheme (PDS). In this context, Aditya Kalia, proprietor of Aroma Biscuits Exporters, a mid-sized manufacturer of confectionery products in Punjab says, Allocation of wheat to Chandigarh has been abridged to 1,800 metric tonnes (MT) from 3,000 MT. The government must ensure that the allocation quota is raised so that it not helps the flour mills in Chandigarh, but also the common people who will be able to purchase wheat at subsidised rates, as compared to open market rates. It is to be noted that the PDS scheme helps consumers to avail essential commodities at a much cheaper rate in comparison to market prices.

UBI uses a consumer led approach for key brands in key markets. It aims to meet consumer needs in the three main global snacking trends – health, pleasure and convenience. This consumer focus, combined with excellent products and relevant brand values, has made UBI a growth engine of the UB group.
To further accelerate this growth, UBI is increasing its marketing investment in key markets, in addition to entering into new markets with great potential.
Our key markets
Canada, USA, Sweden, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Middle East, Australia, India and Nigeria.
Our key brands
McVitie’s, Fruit & Form, Carr’s, Delacre and BN
Case study - Nigeria
An good example of UB International is seen in Nigeria. McVitie’s has been a recognised and established brand within Nigeria since the 1980s when it was the number one imported biscuit brand.
A Government embargo on imported biscuits resulted in UB’s biscuits being banned and subsequently sales were lost in the Nigerian market. In order to maintain a presence in this market, UB set up a local co-manufacturing agreement to make biscuits in Nigeria.
UB International is now re-building distribution and expanding production capabilities to develop a range of locally Nigerian produced products to meet consumer demand.
Marketing efforts need to work creatively to take advantage of the opportunities in a developing market. Significant efforts have been put into developing a route to market, including the aptly named “go slow” – an important route to market for FMCG. In the capital, Lagos, constant traffic jams create rolling malls where the “go slow boys” sell products between the cars. Depending on the time of day, drivers are offered different products and McVitie’s Digestive time is mid-morning.
Although there are around 500,000 stores in Nigeria, only 20 of these are supermarkets. The vast majority of stores are small kiosks or simply tabletops. A successful piece of POS designed to adapt to such stores has been the introduction of a hanger, which is used to hang 10 packs of McVitie’s Digestives. This is used extensively and has the added advantage of acting as a hanging billboard for the brand.
In 2008 UB International is expecting sales from Nigeria to be six times more in volume than in 2007.
Case study – Middle East
McVitie’s Digestive is very popular in the Middle East, outperforming the growth of the biscuit category. UB International’s core business in the Middle East comes from McVitie’s Digestive, McVitie’s Digestive Light, McVitie’s Chocolate Digestive and McVitie’ HobNobs. Lead markets are Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and Ub has a very effective operational structure that makes its products available in the entire Gulf.
Revenue in the Middle East region is growing due to new product launches, marketing support and excellent execution of displays in store.
In some areas McVitie’s Light Digestive is out performing McVitie’s Original Digestive. This has encouraged UB International to launch Fruit & Form biscuits to further meet the consumer health trend. The reception by the trade has been so positive that some retailers have positioned the biscuits both with the cereal bars and in the 'health' aisle.
New development in the legal battle between Britannia Industries Ltd , Kolkatta Vs Kolkatta Port Trust .High court has ordered Britannia to pay interim sum of Rs 2.6 crores to KOPT for settlement of rent over dues for the period since 1997 .Earlier Britannia has asked for stay order on the eviction order issued by the KOPT .
Britannia has been operating on the land taken by it on lease agreement with KOPT and has to pay rental as per the agreement . It has got stay orders from Alipore court till December in earlier ruling . Alipore court has also asked Britannia to pay an interim amount of Rs 6.63 crores to get an stay order .
It seems that Britannia now has limited options but to pay the interim amount to KOPT .
