RECALL: Apples from North Bay Produce of Michigan
North Bay Produce of Michigan is recalling just over 2,000 cases of apples due to potential contamination from Listeria. The six recalled varieties include McIntosh, Jonathan, Fuji, Honeycrisp, Jonamac, and Red Delicious, and were sold in eight states.
RECALL: Frozen Raspberries at Aldi's / Raley's
If you happen to shop at Aldi’s or Raley’s, you should know there is a recall of frozen raspberries and frozen berry mixes due to potential contamination of Hepatitis A. While there have been no reported infections due to the berries, there was a positive test result from government sampling, so it’s a good idea to check your freezer for these.
Non-profit of the week: Austin Sheltie Rescue
Austin Sheltie Rescue, located in Austin, TX, works to place homeless shelties in forever homes. From their site:
“The dogs live in foster homes where they receive medical attention and opportunities to interact with people and other animals until they can be matched with a "forever" home. They are groomed, vaccinated and altered before being offered for adoption and a nominal adoption fee is charged to partially cover these expenses.”
