Somersault Issues Recall For Packaging Mistake
Somersault Snack out of San Francisco recently announced a recall for some of its Somersaults Pacific Sea Salt for a packaging error. Somersault identified the mistake voluntarily and notified the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
"Limited quantities of Somersaults Santa Fe Salsa flavored product were inadvertently commingled with Somersaults Pacific Sea Salt flavored product in packages labeled as Somersaults Pacific Sea Salt," Somersault said in a statement. "The inadvertent commingling of these two products introduced another allergen (milk) to the Somersaults Pacific Sea Salt (6oz). packages, and that allergen (milk) is not listed on the packaging as either an ingredient or an allergen."
The ingredient could be dangerous for individuals with sensitivity or an allergy to milk. Somersault is recalling nearly 418 cases of the product, which were distributed nationwide.
Mariners Doing Their Packaging Part
The Seattle Mariners Major League Baseball Team is ensuring that packaging isn't getting wasted, picking up some of Somersaults slack. The team announced that it is redirecting 85 percent of waste from garbage disposal sites in 2012, up from 12 percent in 2006.
They are also giving away a bag of peanuts that are packaged in 100 percent compostable material to the first 10,000 fans who arrive at the stadium.
