A holiday tradition for many is to give festive foods to friends, colleagues and relatives. One of the last things people in Minnesota and across the country are thinking when they purchase food products is that there will be danger of the recipients getting sick due to the food being tainted in some way. When this does happen, it can result in serious injury and even death that turns an innocuous, innocent product into something that will be remembered as a tragedy.

One of the most inherent acts of trust the people of Minnesota and across the country indulge in has to do with food. There is a belief that food manufacturers, purveyors and sellers will provide a safe product and there won't be a risk of consumer injury simply by eating certain items. There are, however, instances in which food products are found to be dangerous and have to be pulled from the shelves. Sometimes it is because there has been consumer injury or illness due to a product. At other times, there is simply a risk of some sort of problem and people, as of yet, have not been harmed. Regardless, it's important to be vigilant when it comes to food and possible recalls.
