Bakery Products Recalled Due to Possible Salmonella
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
recalls from two major grocery stores, Safeway and Albertsons stores, are recalling
bakery products made with Valley Milk Products LLF’s High Heat Nonfat
Dry Milk Powder which can contain Salmonella. The stores located in Oregon,
Washington, and Northern Idaho say the bakery products were sold from
their full-service and self-service areas on or before December 15, 2016,
with a product sell by date of December 20, 2016, or earlier. The milk
powder was used by Dawn Food Products to produce the vanilla cream custard
that the stores used in various bakery products. No reports have been
made regarding illnesses due to the recall, and the companies are issuing
this recall as a precaution.
Product recalls are nothing new to consumers with thousands of recalls
being issued each year. Whenever a product, whether it’s a consumer
product, food, vehicle or children’s safety, is recalled it begs
the question, “is anything safe?” Recalls can be scary for
those who have purchased the affected product, but product liability laws
protect consumers who have been injured due to faulty or defective products.
Companies, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers are responsible
for designing, distributing and selling quality and safe products to consumers.
Any issues or defects need to be reported to the company immediately.
If you are injured due to a faulty or defective product, your first step
should be to contact a qualified personal injury attorney. An attorney
can determine if a defective product caused your damages.
