Botulism scare prompts recall of Healdsburg pickled products

The Healdsburg Pickling Company is voluntarily recalling three of its pickled food products after the California Department of Public Health warned consumers that they may have been improperly produced.

The products affected by the recall are green beans, carrots and pickles, which are packaged in quart and pint jars with screw-on metal lids. They have the label "Healdsburg Pickling Company" but do not have any coding or "use by" dates on the labels, officials said.

The products were sold at The Cheese Shop in Healdsburg and Perry's Deli in Inverness.

While no illnesses have been linked to any of the products, state health officials are asking consumers who have purchased the products to discard them. Possible improper packaging could make the products susceptible to contamination, causing botulism, a rare but sometimes fatal illness.
