Recalled Castleberry Products Still On Shelves

Inspectors with the North Carolina Department of Agriculture have removed more than 10,000 cans of potentially contaminated food products still on store shelves two weeks after a recall was issued.

Those findings are prompting state officials to expand efforts to make sure the products are no longer available to consumers. One of the things they are doing is partnering with state and local environmental health specialists to identify and remove any of the products still on shelves.

The products were produced at a Castleberry's Food Co. plant in Augusta, Ga., which has been linked to a botulism outbreak.

"You're talking tens of millions of cans that may have been involved," said Robert Brackett, director of the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

Castleberry's closed the suspect plant after the government tested 17 cans at a company storage warehouse and found 16 that were contaminated.

Castleberry's hired an outside firm to visit more than 8,500 retailers around the country in an effort to quickly get recalled products off shelves.

So far, four cases of botulism have been reported -- two from Indiana and two from Texas. All four people consumed Hot Dog Chili Sauce Original, a product made by Castleberry's.
