Finding organic food options has become important to many people here in New Jersey and across the country. In response to consumer demand, many companies are offering selections of produce, meats and cheeses that are certified organic, which can mislead consumers into believing that they are safer to eat. In many cases, this might be the case, but a family-owned organic cheese maker, Grassfields Cheese LLC, was recently forced to issue a recall of approximately 20,000 pounds of its products because they could be dangerous products.
Last year, a large number of hoverboards were sold here in the United States, including in New Jersey. Since that time, no less than 99 complaints have been made regarding these dangerous products. The controversy surrounds the lithium battery packs used to power the devices.
Like many other consumers around the country, New Jersey residents are growing more particular about the food they eat for many reasons, including their health. Therefore, when dangerous products make their way into grocery stores, consumers need to know as quickly as possible. Good Seed Inc., which distributes soybean and mung bean sprouts, has been part of three recalls so far this year for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
