Even More Snack Foods Have Been Added to This Serious Food Recall

On Halloween, a popular brand of sweets and snacks issued a recall of multi-pack cupcakes for the presence of strange foreign material that a supplier said may have made it inside the cupcakes. On Thursday, that recall was expanded to include a full list of other products the company is pulling, for a total of nine recalled foods in total. Find out whether this affects you or your family.

Tastykakes' parent company, Flowers Foods, Inc. of Georgia, announced last Sunday a voluntary recall of three varieties of Tastykake cupcakes: Chocolate flavored, cream-filled chocolate, and buttercreme iced cream-filled chocolate, which they noted had all been sold as packages of six two-packs.

This first Tastykake recall was initiated because an ingredients supplier had advised the company of the "potential presence of tiny metal fragments of metal mesh wire," per the company's announcement. The original recalled Tastykake snacks had been distributed in the following U.S. locations: Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington DC, and West Virginia. As a result, Walmart, Target, and Giant Eagle were among the major retailers who responded by pulling the Tastykake cupcakes from shelves.

On Thursday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published an amended announcement to expand that recall wider. Flowers Foods, Inc. has now recalled various-sized packages of Tastykake Krimpets filled with butterscotch, cream, and jelly. The Tastykake Krimpets had been distributed to the same areas listed above.

The company states that no illness or injuries had been reported as of the publication dates of their two recall announcements. "Best By" dates for these Tastykake products range between November and December 2021, and UPC numbers for the recalled products are available here.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw

At the time, we were bombarded with (admittedly, very helpful) advice on how to cope with anxiety , should we experience it during this time of social distancing and sheltering in place.
