Food Recalls Are Happening Entirely Too Much In America

Before we get into the nuts and bolts of this recall, I would like to suggest that you do NOT just toss this food and be done with it.  These recalls are happening too dang much. If I had these, I would put them in a disposable container and return them to the store and DEMAND a refund.  Too often, consumers are urged to throw the product away without making the companies pay you back.

Food recalls are happening too much the last few years for them to get out of it this easily.  THE ONLY THING corporations hear is their bank accounts. Make yourself heard.
