The products bear the incorrect nutritional labeling information and are encased in pork casings, which are not declared on the label and may elicit allergic reactions in those allergic to pork proteins.
The chicken sausage items were produced on Nov. 4, 2015. The following product is subject to recall: [View Labels
12-oz. vacuum-packed packages containing “al fresco SWEET APPLE CHICKEN SAUSAGE” bearing identification code “308 BW12 USE/FRZ BY FEB 7, 2016.”
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-7839” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
The problem was discovered after the firm received consumer complaints that the product listed nutritional information for a different product, “al fresco Apple Maple Breakfast” sausages.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

Voluntary Recall of Kozy Shack® Indulgent Recipe™ Vanilla Bean Pudding
Kozy Shack is initiating a recall of one lot of Kozy Shack® Indulgent Recipe™ Vanilla Bean Pudding and one lot of Kozy Shack® Indulgent Recipe™ Salted Caramel Pudding that were produced at their Turlock facility in late September. The recall is necessary because an unknown number of Salted Caramel sleeves were placed over Vanilla Bean pudding cups. In addition, some cases labeled as Vanilla Bean contain sleeves labeled as Salted Caramel, though they contain Vanilla Bean pudding. Vanilla Bean contains egg, while Salted Caramel does not. As a result, some of the package sleeves do not include the required egg allergen declaration. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these mislabeled products. The following products are subject to this recall:
Illnesses: No reports of illness
Clarification: Only the product listed above is being recalled. No additional product is impacted.
If you have any questions, contact Kozy Shack at 1-877-448-7839 and please return product to stores for a refund.

GENERAL MILLS ISSUES VOLUNTARY CLASS I RECALL OF CHEERIOS AND HONEY NUT CHEERIOS CEREAL PRODUCED AT ITS LODI, CALIFORNIA LOCATION ON CERTAIN DATES
Minneapolis, Minn. – Oct. 5, 2015 – General Mills is voluntarily recalling several days of production of Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios cereal produced at its Lodi, California facility on certain dates in July of this year because of an undeclared allergen – wheat – with potential adverse health effects. Because this recall relates to an undeclared allergen, this is a Class I product recall.
Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios produced on these dates at the company’s Lodi, California facility are being recalled because an isolated incident resulted in wheat flour being inadvertently introduced into the gluten free oat flour system at its Lodi facility. As a result, the products may contain an undeclared allergen – wheat – in products labeled as gluten-free.
General Mills will recall and retrieve affected cereals produced on those dates from customer warehouses and store shelves. Consumers with wheat allergies, celiac disease or gluten intolerance should not consume products bearing the affected code dates and should contact General Mills for a replacement or full refund.
This voluntary recall includes four days production of original (yellow box) Cheerios, and thirteen days of production of Honey Nut Cheerios at its Lodi, California facility with the following “BETTER IF USED BY” code dates and the plant code LD which indicates the product was produced at Lodi, California:
Honey Nut Cheerios
Yellow Box Cheerios
Products containing wheat can cause illness or severe reactions for individuals with wheat allergies or celiac disease. Products containing wheat can also cause illness or discomfort for individuals with gluten intolerance.
General Mills is transitioning five varieties of Cheerios to gluten free. Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios cereals produced at General Mills’ other facilities, or on dates other than those noted at the Lodi, California facility, are not impacted. General Mills’ other gluten-free Cheerios varieties – including Apple Cinnamon Cheerios, Frosted Cheerios and MultiGrain Cheerios – are not impacted and are not being recalled. No other General Mills cereals are affected.
Consumers requesting refunds or calling with further questions should contact General Mills Consumer Services at 1-800-775-8370.
Hazard: The defect area is on the underside of the rim where the steel was incompletely rolled-under.
Recalled Product: The recalled roasters are large oval roasting pans with built in handles. Purchased between August 2014 & October 2014. The pan is stamped from one piece of metal. It is completely coated in non-stick coating, giving it a grey appearance. The roaster has exterior dimensions of 21” x 15”. The interior dimensions are 17” x 13.5”.

URGENT RECALL NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS
Andrew and Williamson Voluntarily Recalls Certain Limited Edition Brand® Cucumbers Because of Possible Health Risk
Andrew and Williamson Fresh Produce (“A&W”) of San Diego, California is voluntarily recalling all cucumbers sold under the Limited Edition® label during the period from August 1, 2015 through September 3, 2015 because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.
A&W is currently working with health authorities to determine if, in fact, this product is the source of an outbreak of Salmonella poona, with 285 illnesses reported to date in 27 states. In the meantime, out of an abundance of caution, the company is taking all actions necessary to prevent further consumption of potentially affected products.
Limited Edition® cucumbers were distributed in the states of Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah and reached customers through retail, food service companies, wholesalers, and brokers.
These cucumbers are shipped in a black, green, yellow, and craft colored carton which reads “Limited Edition Pole Grown Cucumbers.” This variety is often referred to as a “Slicer” or “American” cucumber. It has a dark green color. It typically has a length of 7 to 10 inches and a diameter of 1.75 to 2.5 inches.
Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis, and arthritis.
If you have any of the recalled cucumbers, please return them for a refund. Sorry for this inconvenience.
