Moldy Applesauce Distributed in Schools and Baby Food Maker
Snokist, a Washington state fruit
processor that supplies the nation’s schools and a baby food maker is
under scrutiny by federal health regulators for repackaging applesauce
contaminated with several kinds of potentially dangerous, multi-colored molds,
msnbc.com has learned.
The latest warning came
after FDA officials said Snokist failed to adequately address problems
identified during a June inspection in which regulators found large,
laminated bags of fruit products that were supposed to be sealed and sterile,
but instead were broken open and tainted with white, brown, blue, blue-green
and black mold. Some of the compromised bags were bloated and one had “a strong
fermented odor,” the report said. Products recalled earlier this year by
Snokist were blamed for illnesses of nine North Carolina children who became
sick after eating applesauce at school.
