Soups Sold At Farmers Markets Contain Toxin
Posted by Ivetta Babadjanian on Jun 11, 2012 - 3:55:05 PM

STUDIO CITY—The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued out a warning to consumers to stay away from the soup sold by Organic Soup Kitchen and One Gun Ranch at local farmers markets.

Dr. Rom Chapman of the CDPH released a statement indicating that as of yet, no illnesses have been linked to any of the affected products. The two brands of soup that were only sold at local farmers markets has been accused of being improperly produced and exposing consumers to Clostridium botulinum.

Ingesting food that contains the botulinum toxin from canned foods that has been improperly processed may cause serious illness such as botulism. Botulism is a rare but serious paralytic disease with symptoms such as slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, inability of the neck muscles to support the head and paralysis of the extremities and respiratory muscle.

 The Malibu-based company One Gun Ranch manufactured one of the brands of toxic soups which were only sold at the Pacific Palisades Farmers Market on May 13 and June 3. Their following soups were affected: Campfire Kitchen Cauliflower Soup, Heirloom Tomato Fennel Gaspacho Soup, Sequoia’s Skinny Spiced Coconut, Parsnip and Turmeric Soup, Ossian’s Pumpkin Stew and Freddy’s Firegrilled Meatballs. All of those soups were sold in 16-ounce glass jars with screw-on metal lids.

 The Santa Barbara-based Organic Soup Kitchen produced the following affected soups: Fire Roasted Yam, Curried Potato Leek, Curry Lentil Bisque, Tomato Bean and Wild Herb and Mediterranean Chipotle Chili. Each of these soups were packaged in one-quart glass jars with screw-on metal lids. The soups were only sold at the Calabasas and Studio City Farmers markets on June 6 of last year and on May 6.

 The CDPH is working with both companies in order to make sure these products are no longer available for sale. Anyone who has purchased the mentioned soups is advised to throw them away immediately and then thoroughly wash their hands with soap and water.
