We rely on the products we bring into our homes to be safe for us and our families. But sometimes issues arise and products have to be recalled from store shelves. Keeping track of all the product and food recalls that occur can be a daunting task, and that’s why we’ve created this big ol’ list to help keep you in the loop on the latest food products, household items, and consumer packaged goods recalls.
If it’s a food recall, a recall of a household appliance, or a recall of a personal care item that has national reach, we’ll be sure to include it in this list. By bookmarking this article, you’ll have quick and easy access to all of the recall information you need to stay informed. We’ll be updating this as new recalls occur.
Here’s the list, organized by month the recall was announced:
November 2023 Recalls
Nov. 24: An investigation into a salmonella outbreak has led to a recall of cantaloupes — which have been linked to the infections. So far, around 100 people in 32 states have gotten sick from the contaminated fruits — with Arizona, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Ohio having the highest number of cases. The infections have led to two deaths and 45 hospitalizations.
Products affected: The recall includes whole cantaloupes from the brands “Malichita” or “Rudy,” labeled as “4050,” and “Product of Mexico/produit du Mexique.” These cantaloupes were sold at retail stores nationwide.
Also recalled are cut cantaloupe and products made from recalled whole cantaloupes:
- ALDI cantaloupe, cut cantaloupe, and pineapple spears with Best-by dates between Oct. 27-31.
- Vinyard cantaloupe chunks and cubes, fruit mixes, melon medleys, and fruit cups containing cantaloupe, most with a “Vinyard” label, and some with a red label with “Fresh,” sold between Oct. 30 and Nov. 10 in Oklahoma stores.
- Freshness Guaranteed and RaceTrac fruit products sold at select retail stores in multiple states.
What to do if you have the products: Consumers, restaurants, retailers, and wholesalers should not eat, sell, or serve recalled cantaloupe or recalled products containing cantaloupe. If you have frozen cantaloupe for later use, check to see if it’s part of the recall and discard it if uncertain.

Kirkland Signature American Vodka
Aug. 15: While not exactly a recall, Costco has reached out to customers who bought their Kirkland Signature American Vodka between June 12, and Aug. 10, 2023, informing them that the product “does not meet quality expectations.” There was a lot of ruckus on Reddit about a chemical-like taste to the vodka, and although Costco hasn’t said exactly what caused the change in taste, rumor has it that some distillery vats weren’t completely cleaned after having rum in them, leading to hints of rum flavor in the vodka. This isn’t a health risk, just a taste issue.
Products affected: Check your Kirkland Signature American Vodka, Item #639271, for one of the following affected lot codes (found on the lower portion of the bottle): 23-0942, 23-0944, 23-0953, 23-0956, 23-0966, 23-0973, 23-0976, 23-0979, 23-0985, 23-0988, 23-1030, 23-1058, 23-1037, 23-1042, 23-1044, 23-1048, 23-1059, 23-1060, 23-1068, 23-1069, 23-1075, 23-1076, 23-1072, 23-1081, 23-1078, 23-1080, and 23-1079.
What to do if you have the products: The generous Costco return policy usually doesn’t cover alcohol purchases, but Costco is making an exception here. If you’re not satisfied with the taste of your vodka, you can return it to your local Costco for a full refund (around $16.00). If you have any questions, you can call Levecke Corporation at 951-681-8600 (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Pacific).
