Apr 04, 2016 04:31 AM EDT | By Mark Jason Alcala
Food manufacturer Snyder's-Lance, Inc. announced a voluntary recall of its Emerald 100 Calories Pack Roasted & Salted Cashew Halves & Pieces product citing a possible presence of small pieces of glass. However, the recall is only limited and covers only the specific production codes of its Emerald 100 Calorie Pack Roasted & Salted Halves & Pieces 7 Packs / 0.62 oz according to a Food Safety News article.
The recall was done after a consumer complained of finding glass in the products. In the company's press release, "We are taking this action out of an abundance of caution after receiving consumer complaint," according to an article from The Morning Call by Eileen Faust.
For now, it is speculated that the small glass pieces came from a specific lot code from one of the company's numerous suppliers. However, the company is still in the process of verifying this possibility at the moment.
Fortunately, no injuries were reported in connection with this recall.
Consumers who may have purchased the affected product may contact the company's Consumer Affair though their website www.emeraldnuts.com/contact-emerald or call their contact numbers 503-364-0399 between 8 am to 5 pm Pacific Time from Mondays through Fridays to have their purchases refunded.

The newly appointed editor-in-chief of Esquire Magazine, Michael Sebastian, recently told the press that he wants to get away from the idea that the magazine's reader is "a middle-aged white guy who likes brown liquor and brown leather"). Which should send chills down the ad dept's spine working on those Scotch and bourbon accounts!
Adding a squeeze of fresh lime and a dash of salt to a lager or pilsner has long been Mexican tradition, and in the 1980s, this practice evolved into the refreshing beer cocktail known as a michelada. The popularity of the drink grew across Mexico and, thanks to the influx of immigrants, it translated well to restaurants and bars across the U.S.
Rosé wine is made in almost every region in the world, from many different grape varieties. And rose-colored wine is produced in a sweet, dry, sparkling, and even fortified style. Yet the classic style of dry rosé wine from Provence sets the trend that many other wine-producing regions around the world want to emulate.
Dominique Ansel moved from Paris to New York City to work at Daniel Boulud's French flagship Daniel as the executive pastry chef, a position he held for 6 years. Fast forward 15 years later, and Ansel has become a household name after the invention of a certain croissant-donut hybrid, and his namesake bakery has expanded beyond SoHo to include branches around the world.
