Food and Product Safety Alert

From time to time we are notified of potential problems with the products we sell.  These problems range from small errors in label information to undisclosed allergens to suspected contamination.  We post these notices here and in our stores to let you know if you may have a product that needs to be discarded or returned.

If you are experiencing a problem with any product, please contact the distributor or manufacturer listed on the packaging, and return the product to us.  We will ask you to give us as much information as possible.  In some cases, we will need to report a safety problem to the FDA.  You may also visit the FDA site to view all product recalls currently active in the US.
