Have you checked your cabinets – and your spice rack, and the beer in your refrigerator? With three national food recalls going on, we thought it might help to round up all in the information in one place:
1. Corona Extra Beer. This is a nationwide voluntary recall of 12-ounce clear glass bottles that might have glass particles.
A Corona spokesperson said the bottles affected are only 1 percent of the production of a single plant, but the company is taking precautions “out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our consumers.”
The bottles came in six-packs, 12-pack and 18-pack packages and include a variety of codes on the neck of the bottle. To find a list of the codes, go to coronausa.com/recall.
2. nSPIRED Natural Foods peanut and other nut butters. This is a voluntary recall of certain lots of peanut and almond butters sold under the brand names Arrowhead Mills and Maranatha and some private-label nut butters from Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Kroger and Safeway.
The butters might be contaminated with salmonella. They were sold nationwide as well as in Canada, Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates, the Dominican Republic and online.
There’s a long list of product names, UPC codes and sell-by dates, so the best place to find the list is at www.fda.gov.
If you have one, don’t return it to the place of purchase. Dispose of the product and the container, and call 1-800-937-7008 between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. EST for a replacement or refund.
3. McCormick Ground Oregano. This is a voluntary recall announced last week of ground oregano in a 0.75-ounce container that might be contaminated with salmonella.
It only affects bottles with the UPC number 0-523561-6 and the date “BEST BY Aug 21 16 H and Aug 22 16 H” on the label. Other McCormick oreganos aren’t included.
The bottles were shipped to a number of states, including North and South Carolina. Dispose of the bottle and call 1-800-632-5847 between 9:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. weekdays to ask for a replacement or refund.
