Food Recalls and Allergy Alerts

weather: sunny
outside: 22°C
mood: concerned

JEEzusMARYandJoseph... it's amazing how many food products are either contaminated with various nasties or have undeclared nuts, milk protein, sulphites, wheat or other things that people can be allergic to.

I subscribe to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency - Food Recalls and Allergy Alerts mailing list. I get the alerts and recalls by e-mail. Most of it doesn't apply to me because I don't have many food allergies. There's an average of 10 alerts a month... which, I suppose, is not a big deal considering there are a bazillion different products being sold everywhere.

This March was particularly bad. There was a warning for glass bits in Taster's Choice instant coffee, salmonella contamination in ground beef this summer and it sounds like no one declares nut contents anymore.
