It seems like multiple times per week we're hearing about another food recall. While I'm glad the information is getting out there, you have to wonder how these products are making it to store shelves. I would love to see the inspection process.

There's Another Snack That Has Been Added to the Recall List, Massachusetts Shoppers Take Note

What Was the Reason for Issuing the Recall? 

The reason for the recall is due to an undeclared milk allergen. According to the Mayo Clinic signs and symptoms of milk allergy range from mild to severe and can include wheezing, vomiting, hives, and digestive problems. Milk allergy can also cause anaphylaxis — a severe, life-threatening reaction.

The Snack May Have Been Sold in Massachusetts So Check Your Cupboards

It's possible that the veggie straws were sold to shoppers in Massachusetts as the product was sold at BJ's Wholesale Club. BJ's has 30 locations in Massachusetts including Northborough, Greenfield, Hudson, and Pittsfield. You can find all of the BJ's locations in Massachusetts on the website's store locator.
