Recall Roundup: July 2018
Can you believe that summer is almost over?! But there is still a lot to look forward to—including back-to-school shopping and those end-of-summer deals! As you stock up on supplies, after-school snacks, and any other products that you’ll need to get through another exciting year, make sure you stay aware of any product recalls.
To help you get a head start on your shopping, here is our July 2018 edition of Recall Roundup!
In the Kitchen
If you’re a parent who is trying to ease back into the chaotic back-to-school routine, you know just how tempting it is to provide your kids with a simple after-school snack straight from the pantry, rather than whip up something that’s tasty, healthy, and easy to make. While there’s nothing wrong with store-bought snacks in moderation, there are a few products you should keep out of your family’s kitchen.
One of these products is Goldfish crackers, a popular snack choice among all age groups. Pepperidge Farms, the company behind the adorable fish-shaped crackers, has recalled over three million packages over salmonella concerns. An infection caused by bacteria-tainted food or water, salmonella is not generally life-threatening for otherwise healthy people. It can lead to unpleasant symptoms, like nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Another classic favorite, Ritz crackers, were also recalled over salmonella concerns. Luckily, there have been no reported cases of salmonella associated with either Goldfish or Ritz crackers.
Some other food products that were recalled during July 2018 include:
On the Road
If you’re hoping to get in one last summer road trip or want to have the coolest new car in the school pickup line, you should check the make and model before driving off the lot with cars or RVs from these brands:
For Your Closet
One of the most exciting parts of the new school year is picking out that perfect outfit for the first day! If new clothes are on your shopping list, avoid JCPenny’s Okie Dokie Denim Patch Shortie shorts. The cute patches on the shorts can detach, posing a choking hazard for younger children. Children’s sleepwear company Allura is also recalling 64,000 sets of children’s pajamas, as they do not meet federal flammability standards.
Whether you’re shopping for snacks, clothes, or something for the road, keep these recalled products in mind as you get ready for the new school year!
