Thanks so much for posting this! I know it's not a recall, but I will be steering clear of the affected brands!

Linzy said...

I was sad to see organic products on this list. Especially those from Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. The cool thing is that I give Maia Juicy Juice because it is 100% juice (unlike most which are less than 20%) and it is not on the list!
