E. coli found in Cal Poly eggnog
December 1, 2011
Eggnog samples from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo have been found to be contaminated with E. coli and a recall has been initiated, according to Cal Poly.
The Cal Poly Creamery has issued a voluntary recall of its quart-sized bottles of Farmstead Made Eggnog after a sample was found to be contaminated with E. coli during routine testing on Wednesday.
As of Thursday afternoon, no illnesses have been reported in connection with the eggnog, Cal Poly said on its website.
The recalled eggnog is marked with the expiration dates Dec. 10 and Dec. 17 printed in blue on the top of the lid and may have been purchased at one of the following retailers:
• Scolari’s Foods in Paso Robles, Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo
• Spencer’s Fresh Markets in Atascadero, Arroyo Grande, Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria
• SLO Fresh Market in San Luis Obispo
• Cal Poly Campus Store and Village Market on the Cal Poly Campus in San Luis Obispo
Cal Poly’s production of eggnog has been suspended while the California Department of Food and Agriculture and the Cal Poly Creamery continue their investigation into the cause of the E. coli contamination.
