recalls this week, food recalls announced this week, allergen recalls this week, pet food recalls this weekThe days are getting longer as we get into the thick of spring, but so does our list of recalls, especially those for undeclared allergens.
At least in comparison to last week’s short list of seven recalls. Here are the 16 recalls from this week in our Recall Roundup:
Undeclared Allergens:
  1. Stuffed potato products by Al Baghdadi Food are being recalled because they contain undeclared allergens.
  2. Also for undeclared allergens, Star Light coconut candy is being recalled.
  3. Undeclared allergens again prompted a recall, this time for chicken products by Taylor Farms that were shipped to the New York City area.
  4. Chocolate chip chunk cookies that could contain undeclared milk and are being recalled by Topnotch Cookies & Cakes.
  5. Creme Curls Bakery is recalling vanilla cream puffs because the packaging doesn’t list milk as the source for sodium caseinate, posing allergy risks.

Pathogens:
  1. Jalapeño peppers were recalled by South Florida Produce for potentially being contaminated with Salmonella.
  2. Castellini Company also recalled jalapeño peppers for salmonella risks. The recalls came out within days of each other, but no information from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) indicates a connection.
  3. Listeria contamination prompted the recall of “Kubba of Wheat” by Mosul Kubba of Chicago.
  4. Wardley Advanced Nutrition Perfect Protein Tropical Flake fish food is being recalled. The fish food could contain salmonella.

Foreign Material:
  1. Chicken & Apple Sausage is being recalled because it may contain plastic fragments. It wasn’t the only recall announced for “foreign material.” See this recall for bread that was recalled for the same reason.

Fall hazards:
  1. 10,000 folding chairs by West Elm, a Williams-Sonoma company, are being recalled. The chairs can collapse under normal use, posing a fall hazard.
  2. 319,000 Office Depot brand office chairs are being recalled. The welding on the gas lift can fail, causing the chair to fall off the base.
  3. Public Bikes of San Francisco is recalling model year 2010, 2011, and 2012 bikes. The pedals on the bikes can crack and break, posing a fall hazard.
