total_recall.jpgHere a call, there a call, everywhere a recall. It seems like everything’s getting recalled today — here’s a list of what’s leaving the shelves today.

Want any SpaghettiOs with meatballs for dinner? Alas, you will go hungry. 15 million pounds of the menacing O’s have been recalled due to undercooked meat. All it takes in a malfunctioning oven to ruin a few million people’s meals. Check your cans for a “EST 4K,” on the bottom, manufactured between (this is not a typo) December 2008 and June 2010. If you have any questions you can call them at (866) 495-3774.

How about a soothing Marie Callender prepared meal sound relaxing for dinner? Oh look, they offer Cheesy Chicken and Rice! They also offer salmonella in 14 states. Continuing on the recall bandwagon, Marie Callendar has recalled the aforementioned dish and their Broccoli over Rice topped with Cheddar Sauce, since they might be linked to a salmonella outbreak in 14 states. Check the package for a “P-45” inside the USDA inspection mark.

If you can’t find any normal food to eat, try pet food; it’s full of amazing vitamins and provides great sustenance. Except for Iams ProActive Health canned cat food. It’s actually deficient in vitamin B1 so it’s been recalled as well. Throw away any cans with expiration dates between 9/2011 and 6/2012, and contact Proctor & Gamble at 877-340-8826 for a refund.

Getting a headache from all the recalled products and your lack of nutrition? Tough luck. Tylenol’s recall of moldy or musty-smelling drugs linked to vomiting and worse has been extended and so has your pain. Here’s a list of the new drugs on the list and what to look for.

Finally, while it’s not a recall, per se, SFGate reports that Whole Foods has temporarily removed kombucha from its shelves due to potentially elevated alcohol levels in the drink. Anything over 0.5 percent alcohol requires a government warning, hence the change. So if you have any at home, whatever you do, don’t use the drink to wash down any non-moldy Tylenol — booze and painkillers don’t mix.
