Smoked Salmon, Bagels Recalled
Breakfast items recalled for listeria, metal fragment contamination
They’re two of the country’s most popular breakfast items, especially when paired with each other and some cream cheese: bagels and lox. So it's ironic and disconcerting that two individual recalls have separately called out both of those items for contamination, according to The Huffington Post.
The bagels are all produced by Bimbo Bakeries, which makes the baked good for Thomas', Sara Lee, Publix, and Weight Watchers. Due to a "faulty manufacturing part," metal fragments might have gotten mixed into the dough, so the company has issued a voluntary recall for all bagels manufactured by them with sell-by dates from Jan. 18 up to and including Jan. 27.
The smoked salmon that’s being recalled was sold at Whole Foods stores, and is being recalled due to the possibility of listeria contamination. The states affected are Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Rhode Island, and Utah. The 4-ounce packages are flat, vacuum-sealed, and black and gold.
