Oreo and Back To Nature Recalls

Only two to start off November but still I am always sad to have any chocolate related food recalls that I need to share with you all. Given the Halloween holiday and the approaching Chocolate Walk, this post is a bit late. As always, check our links, read the information, and check out the food in your house to protect yourself and your loved ones.

I"ve tried this brand's products before. Personally I find them mixed in qualities but some of you may buy and use them regularly.
