Failure to Declare Leads To Recalls

This week’s Enforcement Report from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration includes one more recall from Oregon’s problem with Salmonella in hazelnuts.

The rest of the actions involving Class I recalls are pretty simple as they involve not declaring something on the label they should have.

This is the first time in weeks that something from one of last year’s big ingredient recalls is not included in the report.   Peanuts, pistachios and dried milk are all missing, a sign most of those have gone through the system.

Here’s what we do have:
