Gillis shipped the newly recalled products directly to retailers in Canada and the following states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Montana, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah and Washington.

The 10 Gills products recalled in the U.S. and three recalled in Canada are listed in the FDA recall notice.

The expanded recall product list includes diced, slivered and whole peeled onions and diced onion/celery mix with use-by dates on or before Aug. 3.

In late May Gills recalled 2,360 pounds of diced red onions in the U.S. and Canada after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency did a random sample and got a positive result for listeria.

It sure seems that processed foods and organicly grown food are respopnsible for 90 percent of the food safety issues that are happening lately. This makes sense as both of those catergories have grown in the last 5 years. I think it would be a good idea to give them a closer look, when they are having an audit. Perhaps they need a bi-monthly audit?

Audits are worthless as we see again, even if the are bi-monthly. What is happen in the time between? Read on their website they do everything for food safety!?!. If this is true, why do they have contaminated food on the market? Why does a company with responsibility to their buyers and the consumers put out contaminated food at all, waiting if somebody get sick, dies or again as in this case an inspector in a retail store finds contaminated food? What about test and hold? Where is the traceup from the first day on to get everything off the market in hours?

If you are going to go through the trouble of preparing a meal, why not simply cut your own fresh onions? It is really really really easy to slice and dice fruits and vegetables. It's so absurd to pay double/triple/quadruple the value of the product just to get it pre-cut. Lazy people are lazy.
