Lake Park Brand Carrots Recalled

ATLANTA, GA (SafetyAlerts) - Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Tommy Irvin announced today that state food inspectors are monitoring the voluntary recall of all Lake Park Brand carrots packaged by Zellwin Produce Company, Inc. of Lake Park, Ga.

The carrots, which were further distributed to grocery stores and other retail food outlets throughout Georgia, are being voluntarily recalled due to the presence of trace amounts of a pesticide not labeled for use on carrots.

``Zellwin Produce Company has been very cooperative in removing all of the remaining implicated products from the marketplace," said Irvin. ``Our inspectors are simply double-checking to ensure that none of the products remain on store shelves."

Irvin added that consumers who may have purchased the carrots should check their refrigerators at home and return any Lake Park Brand carrots to the point of purchase for a refund. The implicated products, which vary in sizes, can be identified only by the Lake Park Brand and Zellwin Produce Company labels.

``It's very likely that most of the implicated products have moved all the way through the distribution channels from the farm to the consumer," Irvin said. ``No illnesses have been associated with the recalled carrots, but it is important that Georgians make sure they either throw away or return for refund any of these carrots they may find at home."
