Recalls

Food Recalls

While we choose each and every item in our stores with care, we’re not immune to food “issues” either.  We have a strict food recall procedures in place and will list any of our products that have been recalled here.  You can also find active food recalls on the FDA’s recall webpage.

If you are a member-owner and a product you recently purchased is affected by a Class 1 recall, we will call you with a notification.  Any recalled product purchased at Mississippi Market should be returned to us for a full refund.

If you suspect you have become ill due to a food borne illness, we encourage you to visit your health care provider for diagnosis and to call the Minnesota Department of Health’s hotline at 1-877-FOOD-ILL or email them about your situation.  They will notify us so that we can initiate the recall process, if needed.
