40 years ago: No contaminated tuna in Lawrence

February 25, 2013


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Feb. 25, 1973:

  • A Journal-World survey of spokesmen from 19 local grocery stores this week indicated that none had found cans of contaminated Star Kist tuna on their shelves. The Center for Communicable Disease Control in Atlanta had warned that two lots of the chunk light tuna might possibly cause illness. Officials said that the tuna had been shipped to warehouses in several cities, including Kansas City. Frank Mosebar, acting FDA regional director, said that the agency felt "certain some cans are on shelves in the Kansas City area." However, of the 100 cases of illness reported so far, all had been in the Dakotas.
  • The Douglas County Commission this week approved a request from Killough-Clark, Inc., to operate an asphalt plant at their quarry site in Kanwaka Township.
