  • Food Recalls

    food recalls -

    Food manufacturers and distributors initiate food recalls if there is reason to believe that a food may cause consumers to become ill, such as when it’s discovered that food contains an unsafe organism, packaging has been mislabeled, or an allergen has not been disclosed.

    Just today, Kirkland Signature sliced fruit and Dole bagged salads have been recalled. The recalls are limited in quantity and variety, but if you purchased any of the included items, you would definitely want to know about the recall so you can avoid consuming those foods.

    For consumers with food allergies, recalls can be of particular importance since a frequent cause of recalls is the failure to disclose or misidentification of an allergen like peanuts or milk.

    To stay up to date on recent recalls, you can visit the Food Safety web site, or better yet, sign up for email updates to have recall notifications delivered to your inbox.
