Girl Scout Cookies Voluntarily Recalled

On Friday, February 26, 2010, the Girl Scout organization announced a voluntary recall of their Lemon Chalet Cremes™ Cookies made by Little Brownie Bakers. You can read their press release here. The cookies reportedly have a bad taste and odor. While the cookies are safe to eat, some apparently are not very appetizing.

We often hear about food recalls on the news, but I have found that there are many more food recalls that we never hear about. Today, I went to the United State Department of Agricultural web page which handles all the food recalls and found some that I had never heard anything about. That is scary. Click out the link I have provided to the USDA site to see the recall list. You can even sign up for email updates so not to miss any food recall notices.
