RITE AID COOKIE TINS MAY CONTAIN BACILLUS CEREUS

Working in consultation with the United States Food and Drug Administration, Rite Aid has initiated a voluntary chainwide recall of approximately 85,000 tins of butter cookies distributed by Rite Aid under the Rich Fields brand name because of the possibility of contamination with Bacillus cereus. This microorganism may cause diarrhea, nausea and/or vomiting; however, the possibility of serious adverse health consequences is remote.

This recall affects only 12 oz. tins featuring either a decorative castle or Christmas designs and sold exclusively in Rite Aid stores. Affected products can be identified by the UPC codes 01249596519 and 88411804619 located directly beneath the bar code on the bottom of each tin. No other Rich Fields or Rite Aid brand products are affected by this voluntary recall.

The recall was initiated after the company conducted quality testing on the affected product because of an uncharacteristic odor. Customers should not eat the cookies and can return them to any Rite Aid store for a full refund. Information regarding the recall is available online at www.RiteAid.com or by calling 1-800-RITE-AID Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST and Saturday from 9:30 to 6 p.m. EST.

KOOL RANCH KALE CHIPS RECALLED

Rhythm Superfoods, LLC is initiating the voluntary recall of a limited quantity of KOOL RANCH KALE CHIPS, UPC/SKU code 8 29739 00052 1. A quantity (approx. 2,700 cases) of KOOL RANCH KALE CHIPS containing cashews was inadvertently placed into packaging that did not declare cashews as an ingredient and possibly shipped to retail locations nationwide. People who have an allergy, or a severe sensitivity to cashews, run a risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. Because the mislabeled product contains cashews, an allergen, Rhythm Superfoods is strongly advising consumers who are allergic to cashews and who have purchased the recalled product not to consume it to avoid the possibility of a serious allergic reaction.

HIGHWAY 93 BYPASS WAITS FOR FEDERAL DOLLARS

The near 20 year project of the Highway 93 bypass may be reaching an end if federal dollars are allocated to completing the project.

Officials at the Montana Department of Transportation are waiting to hear if the federal government will grant $28 million fro the project.

Kalispell Planning Director Tom Jentz said, “The entire bypass has been designed. We own, I think, 99 percent of the right of way to build the bypass and the south half has been constructed. What we have is a bypass that only goes half way.”

The south side of the project has already been completed.
