  2. I am concerned that the factory conditions and/or product formulations which led to this recall are not clearly understood and, therefore, could lead to additional low-acid conditions within the containers of ALL products. Also, the manufacturers press release currently suggests that consumers return identified lots to their retail source or double-wrap packages and dispose in a ‘locked or controlled area.’ To better resolve potential factory/formulation conditions that led to this product recall, why isn’t all identified product double-packaged and returned to the manufacturer for further inspection? Who can be sure that disposal locations for 10,000 jars of potentially-tainted cheese oil are all ‘locked and controlled?’ This recall seems entirely inadequate to identify a potential lack of internal manufacturer Quality Control protocols which MUST include internal-audit procedures to better safeguard public health.
