Food Safety Nerd-ism 

You know you are a food safety nerd when… you find yourself excited about a widget! For your website! This one posts recalls, issued by food companies who did something bad. The something bad might be anything. Today, some examples include an unlabeled allergen: oyster sauce in edamame. Very bad for anyone allergic to oysters– everyone else can eat them as long as they have no ethical or religious objection to oysters. There often also known issues with physical (objects), chemical (cleaning products, for example, or machine oil) or biological (microbes) contaminants. If you have foods that might be contaminated with physical, chemical, or biological contaminants, don’t eat them. Return them to the store.
