Sprouts recalled

It’s Friday, so there must be a batch of sprouts being recalled someplace. As a matter of fact, there is.

The 10-pound and 12-ounce bags, with a sell-by date of July 17, were distributed throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York. No illnesses have been reported. Chang Farms issued a similar recall in April of 2008. Additional information

As of today, 261 products which included ingredients from Plainview have been recalled, and that number should continue growing for a while. The recalled foods fall into seven categories so far: cake products, candy, drink mixes, instant nonfat dry milk, oatmeal, instant sauces, and toppings. Additional information
