August Recall Roundup – Bye Baby Strangulation Bunting

Welcome to the Recall Roundup! This month, we have lead-contaminated licorice, overly snappy snap bracelets, flaming dryers and dishwashers, and machetes endorsed by Bear Grylls that can turn around and cut you instead.

What’s interesting about this month’s food recalls is how listeria-contaminated onions from one source ended up in such a wide variety of prepared foods nationwide, triggering separate recalls for each potentially contaminated product. This isn’t all of them by any means: we’ve omitted recalls of fresh deli items where the food would have expired back in July.
