This Walmart Bakery Item Was Just Recalled in 23 States, Says FDA
If grocery shopping was one of your weekend chores, you'll want to read this: In an unusual move, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced three food recalls over the weekend for issues related to food safety, in addition to several recalls that occurred at the week's close. The recalls apply to groceries that are sold at 45 Whole Foods locations, and also Walmart, Target, Meijer, PetSmart, and other retailers. Here's what you need to know.
The FDA typically publishes recall announcements strictly during the week, but Saturday—after one seafood company revealed they'd received reports of nine cases of Salmonella illness—the agency followed up with time-sensitive notifications related to products connected to that seafood that could still be on shelves.
