    FDA: Moldy applesauce repackaged by school lunch supplier

    USDA

    Applesauce produced by Snokist Growers of Yakima, Wash., was recalled
    from the nation's schools earlier this year. Now, FDA officials say
    the company cannot ensure the safety of moldy applesauce reprocessed
    and packed in units such as this 106-ounce can.

    By JoNel Aleccia

    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.

    Food and Drug Administration officials this week posted a warning
    letter to Snokist Growers of Yakima, Wash., saying the company cannot
    ensure the safety of moldy applesauce and fruit puree that has been
    reconditioned for human consumption.

    “Your firm reprocesses moldy applesauce product … using a method that
    is not effective against all toxic metabolites,” read the FDA letter
    sent Oct. 20 to Jimmie L. Davis, Snokist’s president. “Several
    foodborne molds may be hazardous to human health.”

    Products recalled earlier this year by Snokist were blamed for
    illnesses of nine North Carolina children who became sick after eating
    applesauce at school.

    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.

    The FDA’s letter identified at least eight instances last year in
    which Snokist had reprocessed the moldy applesauce into canned goods
    for human consumption. The inspection report said Snokist documents
    showed the company had reprocessed mold-contaminated applesauce at
    least 13 times between January 2008 and May 2011, repackaging food
    into 15-ounce cans, 106-ounce-cans, 300-gallon bags and 4.2-ounce,
    single-serve cups.

    It's not clear whether the mold-tainted applesauce went to schools.
    However, the June inspection followed a voluntary recall of more than
    3,300 cases of canned Snokist applesauce in May after North Carolina
    schoolchildren became mildly ill after eating the fruit product. The
    recall was blamed on faulty seals on cans. The children have since
    recovered.

    Snokist officials admit that they “rework” some moldy food for
    future use. But in an e-mail to msnbc.com, company officials said that
    the contaminated fruit represents only a fraction of the company’s
    products, that compromised product is typically separated and
    destroyed, and that any reprocessed food is heat-treated to kill
    toxins.

    “If rework occurs, our thermal process is more than adequate to render
    the product commercially sterile,” Tina Moss, a company spokeswoman,
    wrote in an e-mail.

    The company said it has begun testing for patulin, a common toxin
    produced by mold in rotting fruit.

    However, the FDA said the company's tests are not adequate and that
    officials must prove they're testing for other dangerous microbes:
    “Most mycotoxins are stable compounds that are not destroyed by heat
    treatment,” the letter said.

    FDA regulations to allow companies to "recondition" food, but the
    final product must be free of contamination. Firms aren't required to
    notify the agency they've reprocessed food unless they're required to
    under terms of an inspection or other action, such as an injunction.
    In addition, rules prohibit mixing contaminated product with sound
    product to get to acceptable levels of filth, said Pat El-Hinnawy, an
    FDA spokeswoman.

    A 2009 consultant’s report showed that the types of molds in the
    Snokist fruit products included Alternaria, Fusarium and two types of
    Pennicillium, all of which can cause illness in people.

    That report was commissioned by Snokist after a baby-food manufacturer
    returned dozens of bags of the company’s fruit product in 2009 because
    they were contaminated with “a large amount of mold,” according to the
    FDA inspection report.

    In early 2010, the consultant recommended six steps that Snokist could
    take to fix the problems, but during the FDA’s June inspection,
    company officials said they’d implemented only two.

    Snokist sold more than 3.3 million cases of processed fruit with sales
    of $53 million in 2010, according to the company’s annual report. That
    represents more than 50,000 tons of processed fruit.

    In the past, Snokist has supplied applesauce to schools nationwide
    through federal nutrition programs, according to the U.S. Department
    of Agriculture. A spokesman said he couldn’t comment directly on
    whether Snokist had been removed from the program, but added that no
    firm under investigation by the FDA would be allowed to participate.

    Snokist officials said they were working to address all of the
    concerns raised by the FDA and were awaiting a new inspection to
    confirm progress. FDA officials said the company has 15 days to
    respond to the warning letter

    Oh bleh! I hate mold. Reminds me of when I put that salsa in my Spanish
    rice without checking it. It was moldy. Oh the odor! And the other day
    daughter showed me a supposedly hermetically sealed 2 slice pack of gluten
    free bread. It was almost totally black and consumed with mold.

    I never knew that moldy fruits were "re-processed". To me, mold means
    it is no good and not for consumption -- not to fiddled with and fed
    to children and babies. I wonder what else is out there that is
    reprocessed for our consumption?

    I often wonder what happens to food items that are returned/recalled.
    This is disgusting. I didn't read the whole thing so I'm sorry if I
    missed something important about this. Just reprocessed for schools (as
    if *just* is the right term) or for general consumption? I think this
    is another good case for not buying processed foods, even something so
    benign as applesauce.

    Janet,

    Mark meant that the stuff put out by Fox news is reprocessed, with all
    that that implies.

    Well, back when my daughter was in school, she would regularly
    report on mold in the school lunches. (She NEVER ate school
    lunches, but she ate with some folks who did.)

    The fact that Snokist did not address concerns the FDA laid out in their
    June inspection.In the summer of 2011, Washington state apple
    manufacturer Snokist recalled thousands of cases of applesauce that had
    been sold to schools. The facility that processes this applesauce is now
    under FDA investigation. The operation of "re-processing" bad applesauce
    is theoretically lawful. I've read this here 'FDA investigating Snokist
    plant for repackaging moldy applesauce' (http://tinyurl.com/7o6la8k).

    I like how there is a method of reprocessing moldy food that is good
    enough for the USDA and FDA, but people at home are supposed to throw
    out cheese that was out for two hours.
