C&F Foods Recalls Rice

Industry, CA (SafetyAlerts) - C&F Foods, Inc. is recalling 369 cases of long-grain fancy enriched rice sold in five-pound bags under the FAME label and 372 cases of long-grain fancy enriched rice sold in one-pound bags under the OUR FAMILY label. The company said that it had received eight reports of glass fragments in the bags, two of which reportedly resulted in minor injuries.

The rice was sold in grocery stores in Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Omaha, Nebraska; Rapid City, South Dakota; Fargo and Minot, North Dakota and St. Cloud, Minnesota.

The five-pound FAME bags are marked ``Best by Oct0601'' or ``Best by 100601,'' stamped near the nutrition facts panel or the UPC code on the back of the plastic bag. The one-pound OUR FAMILY bags are marked ``Best by Oct0501,'' ``Best by 100501,'' ``Best by Oct0601'' or ``Best by 100601.'' Consumers should check the bags, and if they are found to have the October 6 date for either the FAME or OUR FAMILY product or the October 5 date for the OUR FAMILY product, return the bag immediately to the store where purchased for a full refund. The Company has also set up a toll-free number for consumers and retailers to call if they want further information. That number is 800-748-5941, and it will be operational at 6PM central standard time Tuesday, December 12.

The Company said that it has notified the Food and Drug Administration, which it expects to begin its own investigation. The Company said that it will cooperate fully with the FDA and take those steps necessary to assure the safety of its products.
