(I'm posting under pet food recalls, for those of us who use pumpkin in homemade food.  Mods - feel free to move if not appropriate.)

Canned Pumpkin Recalled by Giant Eagle

Saying the product does not meet unspecified "quality standards," Giant Eagle grocery chain has recalled Valu Time brand canned pumpkin purchased on or after August 30, 2011 and Food Club brand canned pumpkin purchased on or after October 28, 2011.

Those brands are produced by Topco Associates. Giant Eagle said it is "working with Topco to further investigate the situation and will notify customers if any additional actions are warranted as a result of these efforts."

Giant Eagle also said it was "not aware of any immediate health concern," but added "customers should not consume these products in any way, or anything in which they were used as ingredients, and should dispose of the product."

Was not Topco the one who had the recall on the alcohol wipes also for the dangerous levels of bacteria in them?

Wonder what is in the pumpkin that did not meet the standards.

ETA  Shoprite & Tendersweet brands are made by Seneca Foods . Acme brand is also made by Seneca. I can't find any connection to Topco ,but am waiting for a response from Seneca Foods.

Got a call back from Seneca Foods, they have no connection to Topco. The pumpkins are from Illinois & prepared & packaged there by Seneca.
