While the majority of the products we sell are safe, occasionally companies must recall them. Recalls happen for a variety of reasons including contamination, unlisted ingredients, or safety issues. Below you will find current recalls for products carried by the Chequamegon Food Co-op.
Once a product is recalled, we immediately remove it from our shelves and contact anyone who has purchased the product (if possible). We keep this page up-to-date and also post recalls on the Member Information bulletin board at the store. Please contact us if you have information about a recalled product not listed on this page or have questions about recalled products.
