What's that, you say? Not one, but two new recalls involving foreign objects in food?
Gut Check is shocked -- shocked! -- that there's gambling in this establishment,
First up we have Mondelez Global LLC issuing a voluntary recall of the apple-cinnamon and chocolate varieties of its belVita Breakfast Biscuits because of the possible presence of fragments of a flexible metal mesh.
Specifically, Mondelez Global is recalling the following products:
- belVita Breakfast Biscuit, chocolate, 1.76-ounce pacage with the UPC 0 44000 03192 3 and the best-by dates of 21 Jan 13 through 29 Sep 13
- belVita Breakfast Biscuit, chocolate, 8.8-ounce package with the UPC 0 44000 03194 7 and the best-by dates of 21 Jan 13 through 29 Sep 13

- belVita Breakfast Biscuit, apple-cinnamon, 8.8-ounce pacage with the UPC 0 44000 02825 1 and the best-by dates of 8 Oct 12 through 2 Sep 13
The recalled biscuits were distributed nationwide.
Meanwhile! Smithfield has recalled 38,000 pounds of pork sausage that might contain pieces of plastic, probably from plastic gloves.
Specifically, Smithfield is recalling one-pound chubs of its Gwaltney mild pork sausage roll with a use-by date of March 12, 2013, and also cases of the same product with the case code 78533109741.
(Aside: chub is an awesome term.)
The good news for Gut Check readers: the recalled sausages were not distributed in either Missouri or Illinois.
