    “Publix Deli White American Cheese, sourced from Great Lakes Cheese, is officially recalled as it may contain foreign material.” BLUE BELL RECENTLY HAD A RECALL ON BUTTER CRUNCH ICE CREAM BECAUSE ” it may contain foreign material”. WHY AREN’T THESE “FOREIGN MATERIALS ” NAMED? IS THERE A HEALTH RISK FOR THOSE WHO HAVE CONSUMED CONTAMINATED PRODUCTS? LAW SHOULD REQUIRE THE “foreign material” BE NAMED !
