Olives Sold in Northeast Recalled for Potential Botulism Risk | Food Safety News

A Rhode Island-based grocery chain is recalling certain Mediterranean olives because they have the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum.

Ocean State Job Lot (OSJL) issued a voluntary recall of Bel Frantoio brand Mediterranean Olives: Calcidica Sweet Monday after the Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) discovered that the product was stored at room temperature when it should have been kept refrigerated, allowing for the potential growth of Clostridium botulinum bacteria.
