Food Safety Recall: Godis Påskkyckling
Godis Påskkyckling Marshmallow Candy
IKEA is recalling Godis Påskkyckling Marshmallow Candy as a precautionary measure, due to a discovery of mice at their production unit.
A mouse in a field, or in a little cage as a pet, may seem cute and no problem at all. But mice where we don't want them to be, such as in a kitchen or a food factory, is a major problem. They can carry many diseases and bacteria. Lyme Disease and Salmonella being but two of them.
It's not just they themselves who can carry those bacteria and diseases as they move over surfaces and foods, but their droppings and hairs can also transfer many bacteria. And with a single mouse having about 70 droppings per day, an infestation soon becomes a very large problem.
Signs of mice could be chewed holes or cables, tail marks on walls, equipment or furniture, greasy marks, an ammonia-like smell, tracks or footprints, or, of course, dead or live mice.
Food Manufacturers, and in fact anyone dealing with food for the public, whether that is simply selling pre-packaged foods, selling loose foods or preparing and serving foods, all need to keep a very careful eye out for pests of any kinds, including mice.
