November Food And Supplement Recall Roundup: Puréed Ew

Natural blue raspberry flavoring....wait, what?

Natural blue raspberry flavoring….wait, what?

In today’s food, supplement, and drug Recall Roundup, we learn that Listeria could be everywhere, and that blue raspberry flavored apple slices are apparently a thing. So is “natural blue raspberry flavor.”

Our monthly Recall Roundups have grown so expansive that we’ve had to separate them into two separate roundups: one for consumer goods, and one for consumables.

If you have any of these listed items in your pantry, first check the varieties and flavors against the ones listed on the recall site or press release, then check expiration date or lot numbers.

If there’s a match, don’t panic! If an item is listed as having undeclared walnuts and you’re not allergic to walnuts, for example, you don’t have to do anything at all. You can keep the item, eat it, not eat it, or return it to the store or the manufacturer for your own peace of mind.

Items that may be contaminated with bacteria are worrisome for everyone, and you should return them to the retail store where you bought them or contact the company for a refund and further instructions.
