Products sold in some Detroit metro stores may be contaminated

Check your product drawer for Kuntry Gardens products or products containing its products. State agriculture officials are urging consumers to get rid of it due to a possible health risk.

A consumer advisory issued Monday by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) says the products may be contaminated with “raw, untreated human waste.”

The contaminated products were discovered during a routine product safety inspection. MDARD staff found that Kuntry Gardens in Homer violated Michigan food law by using “raw, untreated human waste from the fields where the produce was grown for sale to local grocery stores and sold directly,” according to the opinion.

The use of raw, unprocessed human waste in the cultivation of crops for human consumption is a violation of Michigan Food Laws, as well as other state and federal laws.
