Default Temporary Rule Change Parsley

Temporary Rule Change - effective immediately - Parsley

Due the recall of parsley shipped to 10 different states, which have been recalled due to the risk of salmonella contamination and food poisoning in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin. The Board of Directors has issued the follow advisory and rule change for all KCBS sanctioned contest held between this date and September 20, 2009.

The use of all types of parsley (including but not limited to curly, flat leaf, Italian or any other type) and cilantro is prohibited and shall constitute an illegal garnish and therefore be disqualified.

The decision to ban the use of parsley and cilantro is made out of abundant caution and concern for the protection of all participants including cooks, judges and visitors, as well as the effect parsley use could have upon a judge whom was concerned the product they were judging could be contaminated. This decision is made in the interest of fair competition.

This ban is only for the period stated and will not effect any other future competition unless the FDA or other authorities issue additional warnings.

The way I'm reading it, all KCBS sanctioned comps this weekend regardless of location.

Merl -
Seriously.... Fair competition??
Teams that don't frequent the forums would have no idea until after they arrived, with their parsley (which would be safe if it was on the shelves on friday...)

Fair would be to stay with the KCBS standards... which does not allow rule changes, for fairness. No rant here.... just saying, when we had the lettuce recall, KCBS didnt ban it... I think you are doing something that cause alot of consternation and pain for the teams.

I'd recommend all organizers/reps to plan on having and providing a lot of greens to those in the need ... and making them quality greens.

Is it legal to dice green leaf?

You may want to re-read what Merl posted, JD. Then you may want to give Swamp a couple of shots of Cabo The recall was only in certain states, but the rule change affects all KCBS competitions this weekend.

MERL - I will email the full release to you if you would like, but please take this back to the board, so they have a chance to rethink this silliness. :

(From FDA recall on 9/11) ....With that in mind, even though this product is over two weeks old and most likely past the useable shelf life, we have taken immediate actions to ensure that all product is accounted for and out of the supply chain. We are working with all of our customers to insure this product is no longer being distributed." said Greg Emi, President, Muranaka Farm, Inc.

Because of Muranaka Farm's trace recall program the company was able to immediately determine which customers purchased the product in question. Muranaka's food safety protocols also ensure the company was able to determine the amount of cases harvested, the crew harvesting the product, and the field on which the parsley was grown and harvested.

FDA recalls for produce like this have been known to drag on and expand, so those going to the Jack and the Royal would be well-advised to have a plan B for your boxes.
