The presence of food allergens should be taken very seriously. These can sometimes have mild symptoms, but they can also be life threatening. Unfortunately, allergens are high on the list for recalls this week:
- Kenny’s Great Pies, Inc. are recalling some of their Buckeye Pies. It is said that there was a labeling error which did not include the presence of wheat in the products. The affected products have the product UPC# 7 11276 50277 7.

Last, but certainly not least on our list of recalls we have the nasty and extremely dangerous food-borne bacteria that most often leads to food poisoning. Luckily, we only have a couple products to share this week:
- Organic Spices, Inc. dba Spicely Organic are recalling their Organic Tarragon Lot No. OTW100134 because it may be contaminated with Salmonella. The affected products are 0.4oz (11g) with “best if used by: 12/31/20 OTW100134”.
