From spinach to pet food, recalls seem to be happening at an alarming rate this year. Even more scary, only a handful make headlines. Sometimes as many as a dozen recalls occur each month.

On Saturday, Castleberry’s Food Co. in Georgia expanded a recall of canned meat to include 80 products possibly linked to a botulism outbreak. Two people in Indiana and two children in Texas have been hospitalized. The canned food includes chili, beef stew and corned beef hash. (Full list of recalled items.)

When it comes to what we eat, being proactive is the best preventive measure. Don’t wait for the headlines, regularly check the latest recall information online.
