Walmart Pulling Two Grocery Items Off Shelves From Coast to Coast
Walmart has taken two more products from its shelves less than a week after pulling Capri Sun's wild cherry-flavored drink pouches and Home Run Inn's frozen sausage pizzas from stores.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued recalls for organic squeezable tahini from Mighty Sesame Co. and four-ounce packets of chopped walnuts from Great Value on August 24.
Despite the product being advertised as "Chopped Walnuts," South Georgia Pecan Co. had to recall the goods since the pouches actually contained pecan pieces rather than walnuts.
The FDA warns that consuming this product "runs the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction in people who have an allergy or extreme sensitivity to pecans."
The lot number for the chopped walnuts is 29329, and the "Best If Used By" date is April 29, 2023. Between August 8 and August 16, 2022, they were sold to a few Walmart locations in Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina. For a complete list of stores that sold the product, go here.
Rushdi Food Industries recalled its Mighty Sesame Co. Organic Tahini because of the potential for Salmonella contamination, as opposed to the mislabeling problem. With a UPC of 858313006208 and an expiration date of March 28, 2023, the implicated products are identified.
According to the FDA's notification, during the first two weeks of May 2022, the tahini bottles were distributed to Walmart locations across the United States, as well as retailers in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
The organisation adds, "Based on sales velocity, there is very little likelihood that any of the impacted products would still be offered for sale at retail. All products are safe to consume except from those listed in the table with an affected Best by Date." The complete list of Walmart stores that offered tahini may be found here.
The FDA encourages people who still have these products to throw them away or return them to the store where they were purchased, even though there have been no complaints of illness or injuries associated with either product.
Additionally advised to seek medical assistance are those who exhibit Salmonella infection symptoms like fever, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
