Here is today's list of food safety recalls, product withdrawals and allergy alerts. The live links will take you directly to the official recall notices and company news releases that contain detailed information for each recall and alert.

United States
  • Food Safety Recall: Knouse Foods, Inc. recalls apple sauce packed in glass jars, because imperfections in the jar rims may cause the rim to chip when the lid is removed and introduce glass fragments into the apple sauce. The apple sauce was packed under a variety of brand names and private label names.
  • Pet Food Alert: Nature's Variety withdraws two production lots of freeze-dried raw dog food, because the products did not meet quality specifications.

Europe, Including the United Kingdom
