The Idaho Foodbank Recalls 27,000 Pounds of Food
The Idaho Foodbank is recalling about 27,000 pounds of food given out earlier this month.
Coconut milk, eggs, cheese, soup and more all recalled after a cooler they were being stored in had a malfunction and wasn’t at the correct temperature.
The products were distributed in the Treasure Valley, Magic Valley and Wood River Valley areas between July 10 and July 14. So, anyone that received emergency food should check with the pantry from where they received food to see if anything was affected. They’ve also quarantined and destroyed any leftover food from the malfunctioned cooler.
These kinds of things happen and that’s why they have so many safety measures in place to know when something goes wrong. And the good thing is, the recall affects less than 2 percent of the food they distribute each month.
This means we'll need your help now more than ever for this year's MIX 106 Backpack Buddies Radiothon. The twelve hour event is scheduled for Thursday, August 10. From 6am to 6pm, Mike and Nicole will broadcast LIVE to help raise funds for the Idaho Foodbank Backpack Buddy program which feeds food insecure children across the Treasure Valley. These are kids who may receive free or reduced meals from school and for a lot of them, the only meals they will get. Weekends and summer break leaves them unsure as to when they may get another meal. Please consider helping, even just $5 can help immensely! The Idaho Foodbank, along with their partners, is able to stretch every dollar to $7!
