What is the Most Recent Food Recall?
We expect the products that we buy and consume to be safe for our use and consumption. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, and sometimes the products we buy pose potential risks to our healthy and/or safety. When this happens, it is common for the company that manufactures or produces the product to issue a recall for the product to help alert consumers of the potential problem. Recently, a popular seasoning has been recalled.
William Foods LLC has issued a recall for some of its taco seasonings. The recall comes after some concern that the seasonings may be contaminated with salmonella. The reason for the recall is that the seasonings contain a cumin spice that was subject to a salmonella recall that was issued by another company, Mincing Spice Co. The taco seasonings that are part of the recall have been sold in stores across the country.
The seasoning packets that are included in the recall are:
- 1 ounce packages of Great Value Mild Taco Seasoning Mix with best by dates of 07/08/21 and 07/09/2021.
- 1.25 packages of HEB Taco Seasoning Mix Reduced Sodium with best by dates of 07/10/21, 07/11.21 and 07/15/21.
The recall is being made as a precaution. There have been no reports of illness linked to consumption of the seasoning mix. Those who have purchased the recalled products should not consume them, and instead should return them to the store where they purchase the product. Upon return of the product, consumers will be given a refund for the purchase price.
