When buying groceries, the last thing you may consider is the chance that your food will make you sick. Unfortunately, food recalls happen often. Foodsafety.gov states if there’s any reason to believe a food may be contaminated, it must be taken off the market. Stores recalled the following products last year. (One surprising everyday food could make you really sick on page 9.)
1. Aunt Jemima frozen products
Check your freezer for Aunt Jemima pancakes, waffles, or French toast slices. Back in May, Pinnacle Foods Inc. said these products may be contaminated with listeria. No one reported feeling ill, but they’re taking precautions and warning you against consuming these breakfast foods. If you can’t get enough of Aunt Jemima’s pancakes, use the dry mixes and syrups.
