August Food And Supplement Recall Roundup: Pieces Of A Conveyor Belt?

19895201021_69b6b591b1_hIn this month’s Recall Roundup for food and supplements, turkey sausage might contain parts of a conveyor belt, a variety of products may be contaminated with nuts, raw pet foods keep testing positive for foodborne bacteria, and mozzarella cheese might be contaminated with egg.

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

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

When 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 pathogens or foreign objects 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.
