County auction
service changed
Effective May 11, the Wood County Commissioners transitioned the Internet auction service to GovDeals.
County-owned personal property not needed for public use is listed for sale to the general public and other public entities for a 10-day period, following an initial five-day “Classified” listing for county departments.
Users of the Internet auction and those interested in such property may register for GovDeals using the Internet auction quick link provided on the county’s website, www.woodcountyohio.gov. If previously enrolled in LightGov, re-enrollment in the new service is required.
The change to the new vendor also includes electronic payments directly through the bidders’ GovDeal’s bidder account. The successful bidder will have five business days to provide full payment and 10 days to schedule a pick-up of purchased items.
GovDeals provides technical assistance to users by calling 800 613-0156 ext. 2, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, with the exception of holidays. For additional information regarding the internet auction process in general, contact the commissioners’ office at 419-354-9100.

Jam recall
Mrs. Miller’s Homemade Jams in Fredericksburg, O. is voluntarily recalling its Smokey BBQ Bacon Jam and Spicy Chili Bacon Jam, packaged in 9 oz. glass jars. The recall is due to an undeclared soy allergen found in the Worcestershire Sauce and Hickory Smoke ingredients used in these jams. The recall has been initiated due to the ingredient label not stating a soy allergen.
Products were available for sale from 04/01/2019 - 05/09/2022 online and at retailers and distributors.
Locally, the products were sold at:
-Orchard Farm Stand, 3350 NE Catawba Rd. Port Clinton,
-Beekers General Store, 226 E. Front St. Pemberville
The issue was discovered during a routine inspection conducted by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. There have been no reports of illness involving the product. However, people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy could run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. Individuals exhibiting signs or symptoms of food borne illness or allergic reaction should contact a physician immediately.
