Put Down Those Sunflower Seeds!
Sunflower seeds are delicious, nutritious and are as ubiquitous as oats in oatmeal! They are everywhere and in everything and the list of food products which contain them and have recently been recalled continues to grow. The current recalls involve listeria, a bacteria which can cause a host of unpleasant health issues, not the least of which could cause you to spend an inordinate amount of time in your bathroom.
Another problem is that some companies aren't reporting their recalls to the FDA, choosing instead to announce them through online news outlets. This makes finding a comprehensive list of products even more difficult. Not impossible, but a bit more tedious.
Your best bet would be to simply give up snacking on the tasty little buggers and anything which contains them until the listeria issue is cleared up. To see a list of recalled products as long as your arm and perhaps convince you that it might be worthwhile to forego tossing them on your favorite salad, or not munch on them like a squirrel during your upcoming roadtrip, click here.
