Egg now deli meet recalls

Egg & Now Deli Meet Recalls

  • 500 million eggs! – Voluntary recall

    • Contaminated with Salmenella

    • 1,000 cases of salmonella poisoning linked to eggs from Wright County Egg and Hillandale farms.

    • U.S. Food and Drug Administration

  • 380 million lbs. Deli Meat recalled

    • Also Contaminated with bacteria

Eggs recall

Eggs Recall

  • Compare Safeway vs Free range eggs

    • Notice the thickness of the shell difference

      • Right off. . ..

      • Quality (Caged vs Free Range)

        • Free range, stronger harder shelled egg

          ~ Less Salmonella contamination b/c of proximity

Foodborne illness

Foodborne Illness

E. coli: O157:H7

  • Greatest risk from viral and bacterial contamination:

    • e.g. E. coli: O157:H7 (199 peo. 26 states fresh spinach (102 hospitalized, 31 kidney failure)

  • Major cause of diarrhea

  • Usually results from unsafe food handling in the HOME

Shiga Toxin


Most susceptible to foodborne illness

Most Susceptible to Foodborne Illness

  • Infants and children

  • Older adults

  • Those with liver disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, cancer

  • Pregnant women

  • People taking immunosuppressant agents


Foodborne illness1

Foodborne Illness

  • Why so prevalent?

  • Consumer interest in eating RAW foods

  • Grocery Foods mass produced at

    • Processing plants (see Food Inc. ~ the movie)

      • Malfunction Ice Cream Plant in Minnesota 

        240,000 Salmonella Bacteria infections~ ice cream:

  • Ready to eat foods (foreign countries) e.g.

    • Berries (Guatemala)

    • Seafood (Asia)

  • Anti-biotics in animal feeds

    • bacteria develop anti-biotic resistant strains

      • Can grow even if exposed to typical antibiotic

Pesticides use vs Organic Food

Water Safety & Avoiding Microbial discomfort


Preservation of food

Preservation of Food

  • Preventing growth of bacteria

    • Salt, sugar, smoke, fermentation, drying

    • Limit water available for bacteria growth

  • Pasteurization, sterilization, refrigeration, freezing, irradiation, canning, chemical preservation

  • Aseptic processing

Pasteurized: MILK & O.J.

Packaging using sterile conditions, kill all microbes (heat or chemical etc.)


Food irradiation symbol on right

Food Irradiation(symbol on right)

  • (X-rays, UV-rays) - Does not make food radioactive

  • Breaks down chemical bonds, cell walls, DNA

  • Controls growth of insects, bacteria, fungi, parasites

  • Approved for use for raw meats, shell eggs, seeds, dried seasonings

  • Safe according to FDA? ~ free radicals generated . .

  • Radura symbol required

  • Used in many countries, although still controversial


Why are microbes so harmful e g bacillus campylobacter clostridium vibrio salmonella

Why Are Microbes So Harmful?e.g. Bacillus, Campylobacter, Clostridium, Vibrio, Salmonella

Bacteria everywhere: 1 tsp. soil = 2 billion Bacteria !!!

Challenge Question

What are the TWO Ways that microbes cause food borne illness?

  • Infection:

    • Bacteria invade intestinal wall via toxin contained in organism

1.

2.

  • Intoxication:

    • Bacteria produce toxin that is secreted

    • into food digested upon eating,

    • e.g. Shiga toxin

Shiga Toxin


Microorganisms and food borne illness

Microorganisms and Food Borne Illness

  • @ Constant risk of

Pesticides use vs Organic Food

Water Safety & Avoiding Microbial discomfort


Food additives

Food Additives?

  • Limit spoilage

  • Prevent undesirable changes in color & flavor

  • Increase safety of food distribution


Food additive classifications

Food Additive Classifications

  • Intentional food additives

    • Added directly to food

      e.g. (Yellow #5, BHT, sulfites, vit. C)

  • Incidental food additives

    • Indirectly added as contaminant (e.g., pesticide residues, rat poo)

  • Both are regulated by FDA


Confirming your knowledge

Confirming your knowledge

  • What 4 compounds constitute 98% of all additives used in food processing (by weight)?

  • 1.

  • 2.

  • 3.

  • 4.

Sugar

salt

corn syrup

citric acid


Gras generally recognized as safe list

GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) List

  • Manufacturers do not have to prove safety

    • Already regarded as safe,

  • FDA

    • Responsible for proving that a substance does not belong on GRAS list

      • red dye #3 removed (carcinogen)

  • Synthetic chemicals ≤ toxicity of natural products (Organic/ Natural ≠ safer)


Safety of additives

Safety of Additives

  • Tested on at least 2 animal species

    • Mice, rats

  • Determine the highest dose that produces no observable effects (skin, inflammation etc.

  • Prorate dose to a human dose (1% of toxicity~ mice)

    • Divide dose by 100 to establish margin of safety

  • If additive is shown to cause cancer even at very low dose, it is taken off the market by FDA

    • Several exceptions (nitrates, nitrites  nitrosamines)


Challenge question what is the delaney clause and what are exceptions

-Challenge Question-What is the Delaney Clause?And what are exceptions?

1958 ruling that Prevents the intentional (direct) addition to foods of a substance

that causes cancer

The use of nitrates and nitrites in processed meats (bacon, sausage etc.)


Fda approval for new food additive

FDA Approval for New Food Additive

  • Must identify new additive

  • Give its chemical composition

  • State how it is manufactured

  • Specify method of measurement

  • Outline intended purpose

  • Provide proof of safety

  • Cannot to be used to deceive public


Types of food additives

Types of Food Additives

Aspartame


Chapter 13 safety of food and water

Nitrates/Nitrites

Proven to cause cancer

Still used b/c risk is low . .


Chapter 13 safety of food and water

High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)

~ high levels of Mercury (Hg)

~ High levels of Carbonyl compounds

(Methylglyoxal)

-shown to be high in people w/ Diabetes

Soda Warning? New Study Supports Link

Between Diabetes, High-fructose Corn Syrup

13-Aug-2007, Source:

American Chemical Society (ACS) - Newswise

(MSG)

USDA/FDA Recomendataion:

-eat foods of HFCS in moderation . . .

Natural toxins

Natural Toxins

Safrole

  • Occur naturally in foods

  • Safrole from sassafras, mace, nutmeg, cinnamon

    • (used in Root beer) Known carcinogen – Banned by FDA

  • Solanine from potato shoots

    • NIH on solanine: never eat potatoes green below the skin.

    • nausea, diarrhea, vomiting,

  • Mushroom toxins (phalloidin)

    • Death cap mushroom

Is caffeine a cause for concern

IS Caffeine a Cause for Concern?

  • Causes anxiety, dehydration, insommnia, increased heart rate

  • Cancers?

  • Worsens heartburn (relaxes sphincter muscles in esophagus)

  • Women ~500mg/day increased miscarriages

    • FDA: pregnant women ≤ 2 8oz coffee cup/day

  • Improves performance in top athletes

  • 200-300mg/day prudent dose, (2 cups coffee/day)

    • safe/sound for now

Pesticides use vs Organic Food

Water Safety & Avoiding Microbial discomfort


Pesticides vs organic

Pesticides vs Organic

  • Most health authorities believe benefits

    Outweigh risks (pesticide usage)

  • Most toxicity due to chronic vs acute cases

    • extremely small exposure levels avg. human

  • Growing evidence (contamination, destruction of wildlife habitats)

    • N. Americans should reduce pesticide use

    • (USDA + farmers working towards)


What is a pesticide

What is a pesticide?

  • Any substance/mixture intended to prevent, destroy, repel or mitigate any pest.

  • EPA allows 10,000 pesticides

    • (300 active ingredients)

glyphosate

  • e.g. Roundup: (glyphosate)

  • -most used herbicide in the USA

  • - #1 selling in world, 1980

  • - toxicity to developing embryos

Benachou et al., "Glyphosate Formulations Induce Apoptosis and Necrosis in Human Umbilical,

Embryonic, and Placental Cells2008,Chemical Research in Toxicology


Not all pesticides bad

Not all pesticides = bad

  • e.g. fungicides prevent aflatoxin

    • By product of fungal growth

      • Most potent Deadly carcinogens

        -Pesticides prevent billions of food crops destroyed annually

aflatoxin


How safe are pesticides

How safe are Pesticides?

  • Toxicity based on chronic exposures

    • Increased cancer in farm communities

      • Lymph, genital, brain, digestive cancers

  • Some argue pesticide laden food = safer

    vs natural product toxins e.g. peanut butter (aflatoxin)

aflatoxin
