Product Recalls and Alerts
We want you know what’s in the food you eat and the items you buy. So when we’re notified about product recalls and alerts, we want you to know, quickly. We always post information here, and we’ll also email individuals on our email list for larger recalls.
If you purchased affected items, please return them to one of our stores for a full refund. If you’ve used a product and are experiencing any symptoms, please see your healthcare provider without delay. Your safety comes first.

Product recalls versus product alerts
The FDA and our vendors notify us about product recalls. We immediately remove those items from our shelves, email customers, and post the information on our website. To make sure you get emails from us, please subscribe at the bottom of this page.
Sometimes we’re sent product alerts, which are not formal recalls. We review the alert to see if there’s a health risk involved. If so, we remove the product from our shelves, post an alert on our website, and follow up with the vendor to see if there’s further information our customers should know.
See the FDA site for a full list of current recalled products.
