Park Slope Mommies, Take Note!
In case you missed the news -- perhaps you were too busy rooting around for red painted Thomas trains to haul off to the post office -- the socially acceptable junk food, Veggie Booty, from the company Robert's American Gourmet, is now off the menu for play-dates and toddler picnics. Unless you want to be the mom who gave everyone salmonella... It's almost as bad as letting them watch TV!
From the AP:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A popular snack food sold nationwide is being recalled because of concerns about contamination. All lots and sizes of Veggie Booty Snack Food are being recalled, the company said, following a report of 51 cases of salmonella poisoning that may be associated with the product.
From the Robert's American Gourmet site:
Robert痴 American Gourmet has been alerted to a recent outbreak of salmonella and the potential contamination of Veggie Booty and Super Veggie Tings. Due to the serious nature of the health risk, Robert痴 has decided to temporarily stop the manufacture and sale of Veggie Booty and Super Veggie Tings until test results can positively identify the source. We stand by our snacks and hope to resume making Veggie Booty and Super Veggie Tings shortly.
