Please review the following messages from Alan Talarsky, Environmental Scientist 1, Food and Drug Safety Program, DHSS regarding the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Class 1 Recall of 6 oz. packages of Archer Farms Four Cheese Risotto.

Aulcorp Food Marketers Inc. of Toronto, Ontario, Canada is recalling Archer Farms FOUR CHEESE RISOTTO flavor, 6 oz., with "Best If Used By 16JUL2008AA", because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

ARCHER FARMS FOUR CHEESE RISOTTO, Code "Best If Used By 16JUL2008AA" was sold nationwide through Target stores. The Archer Farms Four Cheese Risotto flavor has been pulled from Target stores while the FDA and Aulcorp Food Marketers Inc. continue their investigation as to the source of the contamination.

The ARCHER FARMS FOUR CHEESE RISOTTO is packaged in a 6 oz. (170g) Paperboard Box with a mustard yellow banner which identifies this item as the Four Cheese flavor.

The Salmonella contamination was noted after random testing by the US Food and Drug Administration.

Consumers who have purchased the 6 oz.(170 g) packages of ARCHER FARMS FOUR CHEESE RISOTTO, Code "Best If Used By 16JUL2008AA", are urged to return the item to the nearest Target store for a full refund.

No action is required of local health departments at this time for this recall. If any requests for assistance are received from the FDA, the Food and Drug Safety Program will contact you. For additional information regarding this and other recalls, please click on the weblink below.
