Oregon Hazelnut Recalls Make FDA Report

The latest Enforcement Report from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued Jan. 20, is notable for a couple of reasons.   First, it covers the details of only one manufacturer recalling product because it used the Peanut Corporation of America for ingredients.

Second, it contains all the facts for ten recalls that were initiated just last month for mostly Oregon-based hazelnuts.  Having this sort of information quickly after a recall is initiated makes it much easier to keep track of the product.

Here’s the nitty-gritty on all the Class 1 recalls contained in the report:
