When in Doubt Throw it Out 

These different candy items have been sold in bags, tubs, and pouches. While no illnesses have been reported yet, you don’t want your family members getting sick. So, my saying around all food recall items or anything that could be recalled is “when in doubt, throw it out”. I understand no one wants to throw away food but the risk is not worth making your family members sick.  

Here is a look at all items being recalled.
