Salinas Veggies Recalled

Again and again. Pass the meat please, skip the salad.


In January, Mann Packing recalled organic snacking trays over mislabeled ingredients related to the ranch dressing dip. That recall affected five states — Florida, Iowa, Minnesota, New York and Texas, according to FDA records

It followed a similar incident in August 2016, when vegetable trays were recalled from California and 23 other states.

A salmonella scare in May 2011 prompted a national recall of the company’s party trays and snacks-on-the-go items containing grape tomatoes. In that case, however, the tomatoes were traced to a grower in Florida, not Mann Packing, according to industry media reports from the time.

In the current recall, the products were distributed with the brands Archer Farms, HEB, Little Salad Bar, Mann, Mann Culinary Cuts, Mann’s Family Favorites, Mann’s Snacking Favorites, Signatures Farms, Trader Joe’s, Walmart and food services such as Cross Valley Farms, Mann and Sysco Natural.

Downtown Aerodome – Stockton Changes Airport Name To Fool Tourists


Runaway Mayor’s roost looking to escape it’s blighted image thinks by adding “San Francisco” to its airport name will attract the foolish tourists looking for the Golden Gate only to be stranded in Stockton.

Chances of becoming a victim of a violent crime in Stockton are 1 in 74. In S.F. it is 1 in 127.

P.G. is ahead of the game, years ago they tried hanging to Pebble Beach’s pay for the pavement fame with “17 Mile Drive —> signs on every corner.

So San Joaquin County is now considering adding “San Francisco” to its airport’s name, and not only that, SF gets top billing.

If the county Board of Supervisors approves the rebranding Tuesday, it’s goodbye boring “Stockton Metropolitan Airport,” hello glamorous “San Francisco Stockton Regional Airport.”

Should also collect licensing fees and share the profits with inconvenienced neighbors.

Custom House Plaza Cracking

Gods my me angry over the removal of the fountain to make room for more fake events.

Eric Abma, Asilomar superintendent with the Monterey State Historic Park office, said: “We’re investigating the cause but we’re not entirely sure – it’s possible that there’s a water leak under there.”

While the cracks were initially noticed on Sunday when the Monterey History Fest vendors were set up, Abma said they’re not the first crevices to appear there.

“We’ve had other cracks down there,” said Abma. “They’re not entirely new but definitely more significant on Sunday then we’ve seen before.”

Two Years After Massive Sewage Spill, MRWPCA Believes Pump Is Fixed

City Councilman Rudy Fischer also serves as Monterey One Water’s chairman of the board. Didn’t know that.

Also, MRWPCA changed it’s name to Monterey One Water sometime after the sewer spill. We have some creative and corporate savvy people there I’d say.

In all, nine pump stations exist in Pacific Grove with seven of them belonging to the city and two, including the one along Ocean View Boulevard, belonging to Monterey One Water.

While Jennifer Gonzalez, engineering manager for Monterey One Water, wasn’t quite as optimistic as Fischer in terms of the project being done by Sunday, she said when it is finished it will provide more reliability.

“We want reliability in all or our pump stations,” said Gonzalez, noting that the pumps need to be operational for the wet weather season, which Monterey One Water considers to officially begin on Suday. The station “is approaching 35- to 40-years-old at this point. Some of the valves have gotten to the end of their useful life.”

Fischer also noted the renovation is in response to the sewage spill that occurred in May of 2015.

Moe Even Uses Tragedy To Promote Tourism

John Denver plane
20 years since the pop performer plunged at Point Pinos.

Add to the list of Stupid things Moe Says:

“I was there within five minutes when they pulled him out – when the national news was here,” recalled Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce President Moe Ammar, about the incident. “As much as I hated to admit it, that put P.G. on the map.”

Even now, Ammar said he gets inquiries on a weekly basis from people who come in to the Chamber looking for where Denver’s plane went down.
