  1. Your website heading reads, "Here is today's list of food safety recalls, product withdrawals and allergy alerts." The warning letter of Knott's pickled eggs is none of those. It is a compliance issue that does not involve recalls, withdrawals, or allergies.

  2. Thank you for pointing this out. I have adjusted the template for future Recall Roundup posts.
