article imageAnchovy-stuffed olives from Spain recalled in U.S., Canada

By Karen Graham     Dec 31, 2016 in Food
American Roland Food Corp. of New York, NY, in cooperation with the manufacturer in Spain, is recalling one lot of Roland Manzanilla Olives Stuffed with Anchovies due to a product quality issue. The recall covers the U.S. and Canada.
The recall includes 3-ounce cans of olives distributed in the United States and Canada. The products were distributed nationwide in the U.S. and Canada to food distributors, food service customers, grocery chains, and other retail locations for further distribution or use, according to Roland Foods.
The recall was initiated after consumers filed complaints of "bulging" cans of the product, spurring an investigation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA has not revealed specifically what was found in the testing of the olives.
“After receiving consumer complaints of bulging cans, the FDA conducted sampling and analysis which revealed non-pathogenic microorganisms. This information was shared with the firm and they decided to conduct a recall and crafted the language,” an FDA spokesman said, according to Food Safety News.
The following product is subject to the recall:

While no illnesses have been reported with this recall, consumers are being advised to not eat the products. Either throw them away or return the product to the place of purchase. If anyone thinks they may have become ill after consuming the recalled product, they are advised to consult a healthcare provider, according to the FDA recall notice.
