There are SO many recalls in the news right now! 😱

If you’re hosting Thanksgiving this week, or even if you’re just planning to eat food in the near future, you should definitely take a moment to familiarize yourself with all of the recalls currently in the news.

Take a look at this list of recalled products, and check your kitchen to make sure that your food is safe to eat!

blackberries on a plate


The CDC is investigating a multistate outbreak of hepatitis A that may be linked to fresh blackberries purchased from Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, a grocery chain in the Midwest.

Although the outbreak affected berries sold in September, Federal health officials are concerned that some people may still have some of these blackberries in their freezers. For more information about this food safety alert, visit the CDC’s website.

Cheese Nips

Mondelēz Global has issued a voluntary recall of select boxes of Cheese Nips due to concerns that they may be contaminated with small, yellow pieces of food-grade plastic.

Only 11-ounce boxes of Cheese Nips that have a “best by” date of May 18, 19 or 20 of 2020 are at risk of contamination. For more information, please refer to this fact sheet from Mondelēz Global.

Chicken fried rice

Ajinomoto Foods North America is recalling 172,692 pounds of chicken fried rice products because they may contain plastic pieces.

The frozen products were shipped to retail locations in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, and Texas. More information about this recall can be found on the USDA’s website.

Cottage cheese

Three types of Breakstone’s cottage cheese are being recalled over concerns of plastic contamination in the containers. So far, Kraft Heinz reports that there have been six consumer complaints, but no reports of injury or illness.

All three of the recalled batches are marked with a use-by date of December 10, 2019. For more information about these products, please refer to this press release from Kraft Heinz.

3 raw pork chops

Raw pork products

In Illinois, Morris Meat Packing is recalling more than half a million pounds of pork products after federal officials received an anonymous tip that the products were not being properly inspected.

The affected products include pork loin, pork back ribs, and pork chops. The complete list of recalled items and more information about this recall can be found on the USDA website.

Romaine lettuce

Last week, we told you about an E. coli outbreak that led to a recall of more than 75,000 pounds of salad products. Now, the CDC is warning us not to eat any romaine lettuce from Salinas, CA.

If romaine lettuce does not have labeling information for its growing area or the source cannot be verified, it should not be consumed.

      Two to eight days to sweat it out. Average is 3 or 4 days after eating before getting sick. I hope it misses you.

    This is so scary. Thankfully I had none of these. I hope no one else gets sick from this.

    Mine lettuce is from there. Bought it from Aldi’s. :(Already ate some of it.

    • Kayla

      Me too, just ate some! 😩

      • Pdave

        We ate it on Friday .🤢 we had it from Aldi. Me and my husband had nausea and headache. Not fun…

  5. Mich

    I saw some already put together in Target dollar spot.

  6. Tia in FL

    No salads/lettuce at Walmart today. It was weird.

    My hubby is a produce manager and he said they pulled any romaine from within a 60 mile radius of Salinas just to be safe. Roughly 3 carts full of product. Sad and a waste but better safe than sorry. I’m glad they took the precaution. It would be awful for anyone to become ill.

  8. Suzanne

    Nope, nothing but ice cream and tater tots in my house. Guess I’m safe! (joking, joking : ) )

    I love h2s because you’re so much more than a mere couponing blog. You’re enlightening, informative, engaging, etc.

    Although I’m not a Black Friday spender, thanks 4 all the effort and time the crew is investing for this first-ever round-the-clock experience.

    Happy Thanksgiving blessings to you and your loved ones!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Aww, You’re SO very welcome, Lisha! Thank YOU for the super sweet comment and for joining us here each day at hip2save. We sure appreciate you! Wishing you all the best this holiday! 🥰

    Bought Romaine from Trader Joe’s last week that was from Salinas. Went there to ask about it and they said that that particular batch was not on the recall list, however, the section that holds the Romaine was replaced by another salad product.
