Two food recalls not peanut related

Posted on February 22, 2009 by


There were two recalls in the past couple of days unrelated to peanuts: tuna fish and potatoes.

It’s interesting that canned tuna fish and potatoes are staples in everyone’s house. Who doesn’t have a can of tuna or potatoes, products that are cheap and keep well. Like peanut butter, these products will also ride the recession.

My Uncle Frank made me instant mashed potatoes as a child. That was his idea of being a gourmet chef. College students and new brides can mix canned tuna in anything and have a meal. How about a tuna melt or tuna noodle casserole?

Is any food product sacred anymore? Canned tuna fish, potatoes, and peanut products are as American as apple pie. Will that be next?
