A Brief List of 2012 Food & Grocery Recalls

Food & Grocery Recalls
Have you ever walked into a grocery store on Monday and purchased a brand new food product (at least to you) that you think might be really nice to try. After cooking it up you thought it was pretty good, even if you possible got sick (but with all the random things we ingest it is always hard to figure out what exactly got us sick). So you decide to go back to the store the following Monday and pick up the same product. But lo and behold…. It is no longer being carried.  You decide to do some investigating (aka… type  the product name in Google) and all of a sudden you see a news report saying that the product has been recalled due to Salmonella poisoning!

Product recalls happen every day. It is our responsibility as consumers to be informed about what we purchase, especially what we ingest into our bodies. Keeping up to date on the latest product recalls can help you and your family avoid the negative consequences of using dangerous products that might not be off the shelves yet. The list below is from the government ran recall site,, of some of the most recent product recalls. Visit the linked sites for specific details on each recall.
