After you read this you may want to go check your freezer to make sure you will be safe. It seems that Custom Made Meals, LLC based in Denver has issued a recall of about 8,000 pounds of chicken skewer products.
The reason for this recall is not salmonella or other contaminants. In this case, they failed to label the product properly. It turns out it has coconut, a serious tree nut allergen.
You may be wondering why this is such a bad thing. Unfortunately, there are some people who are very allergic to coconut and they had no way of knowing it was in this product. If they ingested the chicken, they could end up in a serious medical situation. Failing to label a product properly is often just as dangerous as a faulty product.
