Florida Winn-Dixie, Publix recall ground beef for possible E. coli

In response to possible E.coli contamination, Winn-Dixie and Publix supermarkets in Florida pulled some store brand ground beef from their shelves. At this time, no illnesses have been reported. For the full story, click here.

Note: At Native Sun, we purchase meat from privately owned and operated cattle ranch Cowboy Meats. Nestled in the heart of Glen St. Mary’s, Florida, Cowboy Meats relies on rotational grazing, allowing cattle to forage freely while supplementing their diets with fresh alfalfa grass hay. We have worked to develop a relationship with both the farmers and the slaughterhouse to ensure the quality of the ranch and slaughterhouse conditions as well as that of the meat we provide to our customers. Each week, Brad, our meat and seafood manager places an order with Cowboy Meats, literally ordering an entire cow before processing the beef into the cuts needed to satisfy customer demand. The ground beef packaged under the Cowboy Meats brand comes from a single cow, providing a clean, safe alternative to feed lot ground beef, which often comes from multiple cows and increases the risk of spreading bacteria and disease. If you’re keen on ground beef, stop by either Native Sun location and make the switch to local, grass fed beef!


Peanut Butter Product Recall – Updated 2/18!

Upon investigation of recent Salmonella oubreaks that have left 480 sick and 6 dead (no cases reported in Florida), the FDA has confirmed that the offending products contained peanut butter and/or peanut paste produced by the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) at its Blakely, Georgia processing plant.

At Native Sun, we take the health and safety of our customers very seriously. At first mention of this recall, we pulled any possibly affected items from our shelves, posted notice and supplied our Customer Service desks with the most up to date information. While we continue to research this issue, please take caution when consuming any product with peanut butter as a main ingredient (this does not affect jars of peanut butter), or contains peanut butter paste. For the most current list of recalls, please consult the FDA’s online listing here
