Thomson international recall:
Onions 52 has been informed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of possible salmonella contamination involving certain lots of red onions from California producer Thomson International and distributed by Onions 52.
As of now, a final determination as to the source of contamination has not been made, but the FDA, working with Canadian authorities, has indicated concern about Thomson International’s products while the investigation continues. Out of an abundance of caution, Onions 52 has taken immediate steps to cooperate fully with authorities in order to protect customers and consumers and to fully inform Onion 52’s wholesale, food service and retail partners.
Food safety authorities are acting upon epidemiological evidence identifying the following:
- Red onions are the most likely source – other onion varieties are being investigated.
- It is possible that Vulcan Vegas in California is the source, though this has not yet been conclusively determined.
- Thomson International has issued a voluntary recall of all its onions, with which we are cooperating.
- NO other onion growers are so far included in any voluntary recalls as of July 31.
- The FDA is also investigating other potential sources for contamination and has NOT reached a final conclusion.
A message from our President, Trent B. Hartley
“As an organization we take matters of food safety extremely seriously. We believe our food safety and facilities maintenance processes exceed industry standards, as our prior record indicates. We are deeply concerned about this unfortunate outbreak of illness and are relieved that no lives have been lost. We are taking every measure and precaution available to us in order to protect our customers and the public. No one is more anxious than we are to gather all relevant information, arrive at certainty as to a source and assure the public of our continued product safety moving forward.”
Onions 52 is consistently monitoring the developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As an organization that has employees, partners, and customers in many states, your health and safety is our top priority. We are actively following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We will continue to operate and monitor our business as outlined in our Food Safety Program and GMPs. Safety meetings are being held and workers are being educated on a regular basis about the seriousness of this situation. We encourage all customers and partners to reach out should they have any questions or concerns. Together, we will get through this.
