Being a media source, we receive numerous new releases from dozens of agencies, including food recall notices. These used to be seldom but as of late seem to be increasingly frequent. Lesser ones we try to get up on Facebook.

There are a few current ones which deserve attention. Here they are along with links, and a way to track them on the Washington State recall site. WA State DOH Food Recalls. It might be a good idea to check this site often. While we enjoy safe and fresh food here, the supply chain issues seem to have exacerbated this.
