The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently issued two product recall alerts to warn the public against buying products that may lead to illness.
Sam's Choice Belgian Milk Chocolate Bars are being voluntarily recalled from the market by Brach's Confections, Inc. of Dallas, Texas for possibly containing undeclared almonds. These may cause severe allergic reactions in people with sensitivity to almonds. The chocolate bars are wrapped in 7 ounce (200 gram) purple paper packages and sold in stores nationwide. The upper right corner of the back panel of the bar displays a "Best By:" marker featuring code D2551A2 December 20, 2006.

From the FDA website:
North Country Spring Water, Ltd. of Port Kent ( Essex County ) New York is voluntarily recalling all of its bottled water products because the bottled water may be contaminated with total coliform bacteria and diatoms (algae). The New York State Department of Health has confirmed coliform bacteria and diatoms in some samples of bottled water produced by North Country Spring Water, Ltd. Coliform bacteria are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other, potentially-harmful, bacteria may be present. The presence of coliform bacteria in bottled water is a violation of the New York State Sanitary Code. Coliform bacteria may indicate the presence of other potential contamination. The presence of diatoms can be an indication that untreated or partially treated surface water is contaminating the source water used in the bottling process.
The public is expected to check products before purchasing.
