Recent Recall: May 22nd, 2012
Honeyville Honey Farms of Durango, CO recalled Honeyville Honey Barbecue Sauce, manufactured and sold between August 1st-May 21st, due to undeclared anchovies in the Worcestershire sauce.
People that have allergies to anchovies, and consume this product, run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reactions. Thankfully, no health problems or illnesses have been reported yet. The new sauce bottles will have a “contain anchovies” sticker on them in order to inform their customers.
Now, I know this post may have been a bit boring … however, it’s important to keep yourself informed on these recalls, because you never know when it may pertain to one of your dietary constraints!
I’m here to inform you about food safety and food toxicology … which can be a bit boring at times! But stayed tuned, a bit more interesting posts are coming your way!!
Hint, Hint: I’ve been learning about Food Additives in lecture the past few days!
Today I discovered two great Food and Drug Administration (FDA) YouTube videos!
Both videos teach you the ins-and-outs of food selection, storage, and preparation. The first video involves fruits and veggies, while the second video is all about fish.
Enjoy the tips and tricks from these videos and I hope to see you again tomorrow for some more food toxicology!
Tonight, due to midterms, is a short yet sweet post!
I have recently come across some more great and FREE apps for your smartphone!
Dirty Dozen: Which I have mentioned before, is the EWG‘s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides.
True Food: The Center for Food Safety App. Tells you “What’s New” in the food safety world, and gives you a Shopper’s Guide to GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms).
FDA: Gives you all the Food and Drug Administration news; including recent recalls, food safety news, and consumer news.
Recalls: Gives you all the recall news! Including food, consumer products, drugs, child safety seats, motor vehicles, vehicle equipment, and tires. We are obviously interested in the food recalls section, which is great! The section includes recall news from the FDA and the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture)!!
