Food Safety News

American Gourmet is recalling bags of .99c packaged of dried plums because of potential lead contamination. The recall was initiated after it was discovered that dried plums, or saladitos, containing lead were distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of lead. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH)  is warning consumers not to eat eight other types of dried plum snack, imported from China and Taiwan.
