Jan 14, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – The manufacturer of peanut butter that has been implicated in a multistate outbreak of Salmonella infections announced a recall yesterday of all of its product made since Jul 1, 2008.Peanut Corp. of America (PCA), based in Lynchburg, Va., announced the recall of 21 lots of peanut butter made in a company plant in Blakely, Ga. All of the product was sold to institutions and food service businesses, with none going to consumers through retail stores, the company said in a news release posted on the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Web site.The peanut butter was distributed in 17 states, George Clarke, a PCA spokesman in Washington, DC, told CIDRAP News today. The list of states and total amount of peanut butter covered by the recall were not immediately available.Minnesota investigators announced Jan 12 that they had found the outbreak strain of Salmonella enterica serotype Typhimurium in an open 5-pound container of King Nut peanut butter from a nursing home associated with one of the outbreak cases. King Nut Cos., based in Solon, Ohio, a distributor of peanut butter made by PCA, announced its own recall on Jan 10. PCA peanut butter is also sold under the name Parnell’s Pride.As of Jan 12, the outbreak involved 410 salmonellosis cases in 43 states, according to the latest update from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The outbreak might have contributed to three deaths, and 18% of patients with available information were hospitalized, the agency said.Minnesota, one of the states hit hardest by the outbreak, now has 33 cases, up from 30 reported last week, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) reported today. Twelve of the patients were in nursing homes, and 13 were hospitalized, said MDH spokesman Doug Schultz.In addition, a second Minnesota case-patient has died, Schultz reported today. He said the patient, a male nursing home resident in his 70s, had numerous underlying health problems, so the extent of Salmonella’s contribution to his death is unknown. Officials had said the same of the earlier death, that of a woman in her 70s.Although PCA said none of the recalled peanut butter was destined for retail stores, a Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) spokesman told CIDRAP News today that FDA investigators were looking into whether PCA peanut butter could have been used in other products.”I know that the FDA is in the facility in Blakely, Ga., and they’re looking at peanut butter that might’ve gone from that facility that might be used in other products,” said Ben Miller of the MDA. “What those products are I don’t know. That’s always a possibility when you’re dealing with a product like that.”Miller said the PCA press release referred to peanut butter that the company “probably had direct control over,” but if some of the product went to another manufacturer or distributor, the company wouldn’t have controlled how it was used.Clarke, the PCA spokesman, said he had no immediate information on whether any of the company’s customers could have formulated the peanut butter into other products.In other developments, King Nut Cos. said in a Jan 12 statement that King Nut peanut butter couldn’t have caused all the Salmonella cases because it is not distributed nationwide.”We only distribute in seven states and therefore King Nut peanut butter could not possibly be the source of a nationwide outbreak of Salmonella,” the company said. It said it sells to food service companies only in Ohio, Minnesota, Michigan, North Dakota, Arizona, Idaho, and New Hampshire.See also: PCA recall news release on FDA sitehttp://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ArchiveRecalls/2009/ucm128827.htmKing Nut Cos. news releaseshttp://www.kingnut.com/site.cfm/news.cfmCDC outbreak updatehttp://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/typhimurium/

Despite taking 40 shots on net and finding an early 1-0 lead, the Wisconsin men’s hockey team struggled to fend off Bemidji State, tying the Beavers 2-2 Friday.“We are scrambling to get as many points as we can and not getting two with the expectation, that was our goal tonight, and that’s coming up short,” Eaves said. ” We just didn’t find a way to get that third goal.”Freshman forward Nic Kerdiles put the Badgers on the board 11:55 into the first period after a pass through the crease by sophomore center Brendan Wood left Kerdiles with a shot on a wide open net. The power play goal – an area UW has struggled with all season, finishing just 10.3 percent of opportunities previously this season – gave Wisconsin a lead heading into the locker room after the first period.Just over half way though the second period Beavers forward Phil Brewer found the back door with Badgers goaltender Joel Rumpel out of position and unable to make a save.However Rumpel and the Wisconsin defense regained momentum, successfully defending a two minute 5-on-3 Beaver power play after Woods and junior defender Frank Simonelli were handed cross-checking and tripping penalties, respectively.“When you give up a bit of a weak [goal] you want to make up for it in a way and kind of give you team a chance to get back,” Rumpel said.Momentum from the penalty kill gave way for Wisconsin to again take the lead. Junior forward Sean Little found the back of the net with 59 seconds remaining in the second period, slicing a shot into the upper corner of the net that Bemidji State goaltender Mathieu Dugas could not get a glove on.Though it appeared Wisconsin was ready to add to its one-goal lead heading into the third, it was the Beavers that put one away, with a shot from inside the left circle by sophomore Danny Mattson that tied the game up with just under 14 minutes left to play.Wisconsin remained determined to find victory, putting up 16 shots in the third period to Bemidji States’s seven. Junior center Mark Zengerle failed to convert on a one-on-one situation with Dugas off a pass up the center by Kerdiles with seconds remaining in regulation, sending the game to overtime. Zengerle led the team in shots Friday with 10.“I think their D overcommitted and one slid a little, and I just got down the middle,” Zengerle said. “It was a great play by Nic [Kerdiles] but no finish there.”The five minute overtime period saw little opportunity for either team, ending the game in a 2-2 tie.Both teams will be back in action tomorrow at the Kohl Center, with the face-off time set for 7pm.
After two consecutive hard-fought losses at the hands of crosstown rivals UCLA, the Women of Troy will stay at home to host Arizona and Arizona State this weekend. USC currently has a 15-8 record, including 5-7 against Pac-12 opponents while Arizona has a 6-17 record with 2-10 against conference opponents and No. 25 Arizona State has a 17-7 record with an 8-4 conference record. Junior guard Aliyah Mazyck (center) put up a valiant effort against UCLA on Monday, scoring a game-high 21 points on 4-for-11 3-point shooting. Despite her efforts, USC fell to UCLA 70-84, marking two straight losses to the Bruins. Emily Smith | Daily Trojan“Our mindset is great,” head coach Mark Trakh said. “We started out 0-3 and we went to 3-3, we lost two games and then we won two games, so I think the goal is to make .500 in the Pac-12 and go to the postseason tournament. I trust these kids. I’m very, very excited by what they’ve shown me this year.”Arizona State will come to the Galen Center first on Friday night. The Sun Devils have powered to a strong start despite losing one of their key players, guard Sabrina Haines to an ACL injury in December, due to the team’s balance and depth. Junior Kianna Ibis leads the Sun Devils with 13 points per game on efficient shooting percentages of 50 percent shooting, 41.9 percent from downtown and 80 percent from the line. Guards Courtney Ekmark and Robbi Ryan and forward Jamie Ruden shore up the scoring with averages of 10.1, 9.5 and 10.0, respectively, and all three players are capable shooters from deep. Center Charnea Johnson-Chapman leads the team in rebounding with 7.2 per game. With such balanced team members who know their roles and contribute equally, Arizona State poses a challenge for any team to play. “They play a very aggressive defense,” Trakh said. “They like to come out and pressure so we gotta handle their pressure and they run their sets really, really well, so we [have to] come out fresh and we have to defend their sets. I think that’s the main things: handle their man-to-man pressure, they’ll play 10 people, they’ll rotate every couple minutes so they like to keep their kids fresh. We’re not as deep, so that’s going to be where the challenge is going to pose in a 40-minute game.”The other Arizona team will come on Sunday afternoon, but compared to the Sun Devils, the Wildcats have struggled this season. The Wildcats are led by guard JaLea Bennett with 14.6 points per game and Sam Thomas with 10 points and 7.8 rebounds. Guard Lucia Alonso and forward Kat Wright are both capable shooters, with Alonso notably averaging 42.7 percent from deep. However, the Wildcats are terribly inefficient as a team with 36.6 percent shooting overall, including 33.0 percent from 3-point range. The Wildcats are also similar to the Trojans in rebounding averages which could be a key focus in the matchup as the Wildcats will pit Thomas and forward Destiny Graham (6.6 rebounds per game) against Trojans senior forward Kristen Simon. However, USC should look to pick up a win on Sunday against the struggling Wildcats. “They just fight, in a year where they got a really great recruiting class coming in next year so I think they’re just loose and they’re playing hard and they’re well coached, so I think it’s a question of focus because they’re so capable of beating anyone in the conference,” Trakh said. Despite two losses against UCLA, the Trojans competed well in the two games and they hope that energy and effort will carry over into this weekend’s matchups. They were down early in both game, but USC fought back valiantly, cutting double-digit deficits to a fighting chance in both games before UCLA built their lead back up. The team’s relentless effort to climb back within distance of UCLA warranted praise from the Trojans’ head coach. “They played the No. 9 team in the country with probably the best point guard in the country and I felt the kids played a competitive game,” Trakh said. “It was an 8-point game in the fourth quarter at their place and it was a 1-point deficit with four minutes remaining at our place. Everybody we play, it’s been a competitive game and it’s a game where we had a chance to win it in the fourth quarter so I like that competitive spirit the kids have. They won’t give up, they’ll never think they’re out of the game.”USC’s defense has been stifling so far this season as their zone defense has dramatically altered the pace of the game to be much slower, something that UCLA coach Cori Close admitted to be a factor in hampering UCLA’s high-pace offense. Another key pointer to watch for will be foul trouble as USC’s starters were peppered with fouls in its slugfest against UCLA, forcing Trakh to play the reserves while keeping its starters glued to the bench. As USC does not boast a deep bench, it has relied on heavy minutes from the starters for most, if not all, of their production on a nightly basis and the starters will have to be careful on the defensive end to avoid foul troubles.“All year we’ve stayed out of foul trouble,” Trakh said. “So we gotta get back to basics: not fouling. We can’t afford to foul because of our lack of depth so we can’t foul. Our defense has been good at times and it’s also been suspect at times but it’s been good more than it’s been suspect. We just gotta regroup and get ready for the game.”USC hosts Arizona State on Friday at 7 p.m. before playing Arizona on Sunday at 1 p.m. Both games can be streamed through USC’s live stream which can be found on the Pac-12 Network site.
