20 food, dietary supplement recalls initiated


Food producers carried out 20 food or dietary supplement product recalls over the past two months, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Such companies decide to pull products from the marketplace when the food is inaccurately labeled, when it creates a potential health risk for consumers due to contamination or when the food has caused a sickness outbreak, the FDA reports.
