i am on an fda mailing list for life threatening recalls:
FDA posts press releases and other notices of recalls and market withdrawals from the firms involved as a service to consumers, the media, and other interested parties. FDA does not endorse either the product or the company. This listserv covers mainly Class I (life-threatening) recalls. A complete listing of recalls can be found in the FDA Enforcement Report at: http://www.fda.gov/opacom/Enforce.html
beyond blowfish being labelled as monkfish - i thought this recall is pretty funny considering the product name:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Atlanta, GA -- August 27, 2007 -- Bella Cucina of Atlanta, Georgia is recalling units of Death by Chocolate cookies [my emphasis] if your bag does not correctly state that the product contains walnuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to Walnuts run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
