Food Recalls Kids Favorite Granola Bars Pulled Because of Salmonella
Posted Feb 25 2010 12:00am
I was checking out at Trader Joe’s a couple days ago when I noticed a note taped to the raised chunk of wood customers use to sign checks. Customers were being warned to not eat Chocolate Chip Chewy Coated Granola Bars or else risk getting a serious food-related illness.
The first thing I said to the cashier: “That’s my kids’ favorite granola bar.” The second thing I said: “The note is too late. If you’re here again to shop, you’ve already eaten them.” He didn’t seem to understand what I meant by that, but I didn’t make a bigger deal about it since we hadn’t bought any recently.
I forgot about the incident until this morning, when a blogger, who had a different – but equally valid beef with the recall – reminded me I need to post on this topic. (The blogger was irritated that the word “salmonella” was conveniently left off the store recall notice.)
