Recent Food Recalls for the Week Beginning December 7
The week beginning December 7th is the lightest for food recalls that we have seen since starting this safety series. There were only 2 recalls last week, one each of Class I and allergy labeling recalls.
Class I Recalls
JEM Raw Organics Nut Butter Spreads were recalled by JEM Raw Chocolate due to the possibility of Salmonella contamination. Almond, cashew, and hazelnut spreads sold in glass jars are included in the recall. Products were sold both online and in retailers nationwide. Nut butters are commonly used as a substitute for peanut butter by those allergic to peanuts. More details are available here: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm475341.htm
Allergy Labeling Recalls
Frozen road beef products were recalled by K. Heeps because of misbranding and allergens that were not declared: milk and wheat. 152,010 pounds of the product were affected including those produced from December 18, 2014 to November 20, 2015. More details of this recall are available in the news release.
