We don't have popcorn recalls very frequently. The only one I can recall offhand was for rat poop. Now we have one in the U.S. caused by Listeria monocytogenes. That is the bacterium that pregnant women need to avoid at all costs. (See all my previous posts on the subject). Children and frail elderly people or anyone else with a weak immune system should be extra careful too.

Dale and Thomas Popcorn is voluntarily recalling a limited number of ready-to-eat bags of select flavors of Popcorn, Indiana-brand popcorn products because of possible contamination by Listeria monocytogenes.

There are an amazing array of different flavors being recalled: Aged White Cheddar, Almond Biscotti, American Cheese, Bacon Ranch, Apple Crisp, Black & White Drizzle (what's that?), Caramel, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cinnamon Sugar Drizzle, Dark Fudge Chocolate Chip Drizzle, Dark Fudge Chocolate Chip Drizzle, Kettlecorn, Salt & Pepper, Wasabi Reserve.

Frankly, I didn't know there were so many flavors of popcorn, since I never buy it. There is more information available on the FDA site.

To your good health,
