metal pieces, plastic pieces of equipment that's so flimsily made or used into the ground that we're all
exposed to foreign materials in the foods we consume?

foreign materials from the ingredients used and included in these "wholesome" inspected products including
bone fragments and heaven knows what else?

undeclared ingredients included in foods that may injure people with allergies or just plain get in there
because equipment is not cleaned between food runs?

or just plain not telling the truth when it comes to the reasons for recalls?

Not a very confidence inspiring picture of processed food manufacturing.
Does anyone know if there's any legal requirement to tell the truth in a voluntary manufacturer FDA recall notice?

I'm haunted by memories of blue plastic found in pet foods last year.

Had to give sis a call - this is one of her staples.

Maybe she might listen to me a tad more on food safety?  Or not.  Shocked

This actually made our local news   Shocked  and they describe them as "popular" frozen meals. I'm guessing they are staples for many. I know when I work on site in offices, many eat them for lunch. Heck, back in the day I did also, along with the Healthy Choice ones. Inexpensive hot lunch option when working in Manhattan and too tired to cook the night before.
