WASHINGTON - When you're shopping for and preparing your holiday meal, you may want to be aware of some popular products that were recalled recently:
Romaine lettuce may not be subject to a recall per se, but health officials are warning consumers that they should refrain from eating any romaine at all. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued the warning after E. coli sickened 32 people in 11 states and 18 people.
Nearly 7 million pounds of ground of ground beef have been recalled by an Arizona company after 246 cases of people with salmonella infections were reported in 25 states. None of those cases were recorded in the Metro DC area.
A salmonella outbreak prompted Jennie-O to recall 91,000 pounds of raw turkey. The outbreak is responsible for one death, and 164 illnesses in 35 states.
Duncan Hines has also recalled cake mixes over salmonella concerns. Salmonella was discovered in a retail sample of Duncan Hines Classic White cake mix, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
You should throw out any romaine and not purchase it from any store or restaurant. If you have already purchased any of the recalled products, you should throw it away or contact the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
