If there was one thing we learned in 2018, it’s that in spite of rigid food and safety standards, food recalls happen — and they happen frequently (we’re looking at you, romaine lettuce). There is a good reason for all of these recalls, of course. Mistakes can (and do) happen. But whether a product is pulled due to contamination, possible contamination, mislabeling and/or the usage of undeclared ingredients doesn’t matter. What matters is that you are aware of said recall when it happens. Because, lets face it — your health depends on it.
So, how do you know which products to toss, which products to keep and which ones to avoid? Well, in order to help keep you abreast of all the latest recall information, we compiled a handy list of all this year’s food recall data.
