Tomato-linked Salmonella outbreak spreads to 16 states

first_img FDA list of tomato growing regions not linked to the outbreak The illnesses are linked to an unusual strain, Salmonella enterica serotype Saintpaul. The FDA, in a Jun 7 press release, warned consumers not to eat raw red plum, red Roma, or red round tomatoes, or products that contain any of those varieties, unless the growing areas are on a list posted on the agency’s Web site. Some restaurant chains are temporarily taking tomatoes off their menus. For example, McDonald’s Corp. announced today that it would not serve sliced tomatoes on its hamburgers until the source of the contaminated tomatoes is determined, according to a report from the Associated Press. The FDA repeated its previous statement that grape, cherry, vine-on, and home-grown tomatoes still appear safe to eat. Based on interviews with 73 people, illness onset dates ranged from Apr 16 to May 28. Ages ranged from 1 to 82 years, and 49% of the patients were female. At least 23 patients were hospitalized, but no deaths were reported. Most of the people who have been sickened in the outbreak were from Texas (56), New Mexico (39), Illinois (17), and Arizona (12), according to a Jun 7 statement from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The FDA’s initial warning about the outbreak, on Jun 3, focused only on New Mexico and Texas, though cases in seven other states were being investigated. The organism typically causes fever and nonbloody diarrhea that resolves in a week. Jun 9, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently warned consumers nationwide to avoid certain raw tomatoes as the number of people sickened in a nationwide Salmonella outbreak grew to 145 cases in 16 states. See also:center_img Jun 7 CDC press release The rarity of the strain and the involvement of so many regions suggest that the contaminated tomatoes were distributed throughout much of the country, the FDA said. During the same time frame last year, only three people in the United States had confirmed S Saintpaul infections. Traceback studies conducted so far have indicated that tomatoes from 15 US and international growing areas are not associated with the outbreak. US states that have been cleared so far include Arkansas, California, Georgia, Hawaii, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. Consumers who aren’t sure where their tomatoes were grown or harvested should contact the store where they bought them. Jun 4 CIDRAP News story “Tomatoes suspected in multistate Salmonella outbreak” The FDA urged retailers, restaurateurs, and food service operators not to use red Roma, plum, or round tomatoes unless they are from growing regions that don’t appear to be the source of any tainted tomatoes.

La PA CDFI Network es un grupo de 17 instituciones financieras de desarrollo comunitario con sede en Pennsylvania que principalmente brindan opciones de financiamiento a pequeñas empresas.Puede encontrar más información sobre el programa de Asistencia a pequeñas empresas de todo el estado para aliviar la crisis por COVID-19 en el sitio de Internet del DCED.View this information in English.

Tropical Sovereign Islands mansion on the market

first_img33 Hampton Court Paradise Point 33 Hampton Court Paradise PointTheir tropical home at 33 Hampton Court was able to fulfil that dream for them, capturing picturesque sunsets in the afternoons. The home was designed by Paul Clout to incorporate a tropical Queensland style with a resort feel. 33 Hampton Court Sovereign Islands4 4 6Price: $5.288 millionFeatures: Stone benchtops, dumb waiter and spa Area: 700sq mAgent: Amir Mian, Prestige Property Agents Paradise Point 33 Hampton Court Paradise Point“It takes 15 minutes for the kids and I to get to Stradbroke Island on the boat for a surf, but less than a minute to jump on the wakeboards since we are 50m from the water’s edge,” the father of three said. “The other thing is that the sheltered waters add to the privacy so it really is like a tropical resort.“The boys have their friends over, especially in the summer, the kids spend all day at the house playing in pool or out on the water. In winter we turn to the spa and sauna.“The big attraction to the house was its views, and the fact that it had really interesting curves.“It must have been quite difficult for the builder to create so many curved rooms.” 33 Hampton Court Paradise PointLimestone tiles imported from Oman, a curved concrete staircase and Blackbutt flooring in the living room combines with a New Zealand Schist stonework in the lounge room. center_img More from news02:37Purchasers snap up every residence in the $40 million Siarn Palm Beach North9 hours ago02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa1 day ago33 Hampton Court Paradise PointMr Rodrick said that inside the home the couple had created a contemporary vibe.“There is so much glass so every from frames a view, especially the lounge room because it is completely rounded with windows,” he said.“The interiors are nice but we spend most of our time in the outdoor entertaining area.” THERE isn’t much need for a holiday when you spend every day in a tropical hideaway like this Balinese-inspired beauty on the private Sovereign Islands.At least that’s what homeowners Rod and Melissa Rodrick think. The couple, who bought the property six years ago, said their previous home in Brisbane had been similar but it missed one crucial element — the island views. 33 Hampton Court Paradise PointOn the first level a dumb waiter services the six-car space basement. The kitchen offers maximum hospitality with two dishwashers and a cappuccino machine, but the showpiece Mr Rodrick said is the heated pool featuring its own waterfall.last_img read more

UK Catholic Care loses gay adoption fight

first_imgBBC News 1 Nov 2012A Roman Catholic adoption agency has been told it cannot turn away gay couples if it wants to keep its charitable status. Catholic Care, run by the Diocese of Leeds, wanted its adoption service to be made exempt from equality laws. A judge has ruled the charity had failed to give convincing reasons why it should be allowed to do so. Catholic Care said it would consider its position but could have to end the service as it would lose funding. The charity – which has been placing children with adoptive parents for more than 100 years – was among 12 Catholic agencies in England and Wales forced to change their policy towards homosexual people due to equality laws passed in 2007. Others have since closed or cut their ties with the Church.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-20184133last_img read more
