The Bolthouse carrot juice casualties just went international. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency updated its previous advisory not to drink the recalled product and noted that two botulism cases in Toronto are now tied to the Bolthouse product, in addition to four in the United States.
Wm. Bolthouse Farms says the problem is due to “temperature abused” 100% carrot juice.
One wonders why all of the sudden there would be six cases. The Pundit has been dealing with the issue here, here, here and here and particularly, the Pundit has been drawing attention to the importance of keeping the cold chain in tact throughout the distribution chain.
Still, this cluster of cases in disparate locations seems to suggest a problem at the source.
