There was a recall on fresh whole red, white, and yellow onions imported from Chihuahua, Mexico on October 20th, 2021. Our company did not purchase from any of the distributors named in this incident nor did we purchase product imported from Chihuahua, Mexico. Our onions are grown fresh right here in NV and shipped direct to stores. We do not have any association whatsoever with the parties that have been implicated in this recall. The onions in this incident are not from our company. Peri & Sons Farms onions are safe for consumption.

Our internal food safety standards and practices require that all onions, red, white, sweets and yellows, sold from our farms and packing shed facilities carry a certificate of analysis with negative results for both Salmonella and E. coli.

Slow Cooker Italian Sausage and Potato Soup
This creamy, warm soup eats more like a stew -- it's thick, rich and stick-to-your-ribs good. It freezes well and reheats beautifully. You can assemble the soup, refrigerate for up to 24 hours, and cook when ready to serve. This recipe makes 6-8 servings.

Slow Cooker Italian Sausage and Potato Soup
Ingredients
1 pound Spicy or Sweet Italian Sausage, casings removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 large carrots, rinsed and chopped
6-8 small Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1" cubes
1 quart chicken stock
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 cup heavy cream or half-and-half
Handful of freshly chopped parsley
Salt and pepper, to taste
Directions
Preheat one tablespoon oil in a large, heavy skillet to medium-high on the stove top. Add sausage and break into chunks with the back of a wooden spoon. Cook until sausage is no longer pink, about 8-10 minutes. Once cooked through, transfer sausage to a 4 quart slow cooker and drain fat from the pan.

In the same pan, add the remaining oil. Add onions, carrots and celery and cook until the vegetables begin to soften and become fragrant, about 4-5 minutes. Once vegetables are cooked, add a splash of stock to the pan, making sure to scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan with the back of a wooden spoon. Add vegetable mixture to the slow cooker.

Add potatoes, remaining stock, Italian seasoning and cream or half-and-half to slow cooker. Stir gently to combine all ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours, until the potatoes become fork-tender and the soup begins to thicken. Taste to adjust seasoning, garnish with parsley and serve.
