Gary Tashjian, Darwin’s president, wrote an email to distributors that said in part, “We have not received any reports [of illnesses] from customers regarding these meals, and are taking these steps out of an abundance of caution.” He added, “We are taking steps to reduce the opportunity for this to occur again.”
