food recall

After Corona and Stauffer’s issued recalls last month for possible contamination with glass fragments, on April 1 Snyder’s-Lance, Inc. and Roland Food both issued recalls for the same reasons.

Products affected are Emerald 100-calorie pack roasted and salted cashew halves and pieces; and Roland Foods cans of fire roasted red pepper strips.

Both companies found out from consumer complaints, and thankfully no one was hurt.
