What started as a single company recalling spice products due to the undeclared presence of peanut in cumin has snowballed into the most widespread series of allergy-related recalls since the U.S. Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) came into effect in 2006.

Hundreds of products produced by dozens of companies are affected, so it’s essential for those dealing with peanut allergies to become aware of the situation and to check to see whether products they purchased are among the recalls.

Read the full story and find out which products have been affected here: http://allergicliving.com/2015/01/22/peanut-contaminated-cumin-leads-to-massive-allergy-recall/

Has this massive recall effected you? What precautions are you taking?

Canada is less affected, but a couple of brands have recalled: http://allergicliving.com/2015/03/23/cu ... in-canada/

This must be a huge cost to many companies! I wonder if the FDA and Canadian Food Inspection Agency will be test more in the future.

Glad they caught it!
