Baked goods recalled on Christmas Eve

Pastries, cakes, cookies, pies and other baked goods made by Rolf's Patisserie in Chicago are being recalled this Christmas Eve, over concerns that the sweets may contain Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria.

In a written statement released Friday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says the pastries have already sickened 100 people in Illinois and Wisconsin; and that any Rolf's product manufactured after November 1st may be contaminated as well.

Rolf's line of baked goods is sold online and distributed through national wholesale and retail chains, the FDA says, and may have been repackaged and sold under different brand names in supermarkets and through caterers and large institutions, such as nursing homes.  The FDA recommends checking labels closely, and if you're unsure whether the products were made by Rolf's, calling the store where they were purchased.

If you have purchased a Rolf's product made after November 1st, the recall notice recommends trashing the baked goods in a sealed container, so that children and animals cannot get to them.

Staphylococcus Aureus is one of many bacteria responsible for GI illness. Symptoms of S. aureus food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps. Most infected people will recover within two days of ingesting the bacteria, but the FDA says children and elderly victims may need to be treated for dehydration.

Rolf's Patisserie employees would not comment on the recall.

Whole Foods Market issued the following statement:

Whole Foods Market is recalling ginger bread houses as part of a larger recall of pastry products from its supplier Rolf’s Patisserie of Lincolnville, Illinois. No illnesses have been reported from ginger bread houses sold by Whole Foods Market. However, Rolf’s Patisserie has reported Staphylococcus aureus food poisoning illnesses connected to other pastry products they sell. The recalled ginger bread houses may have been packaged and sold with a Whole Foods Market label and were sold in stores in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, and Ontario, Canada.

    • Stop Blaming Obama STUPID!

      He is only trying to rein in the raping of our foods that has been happening for many years unchecked by these corporations. Monsanto is practically the devil in the way they do business and purposely poison our food supply. You have to be a complete idiot to not see what is really going on here. But if you like getting food poisoning, go for it !

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?
    I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
