Montana Ranked 4th in Food Recalls
The FDA closely monitors most food items to ensure we all don't get sick from contaminants (excluding meat and poultry, drinking water and alcohol - those are handled by other government agencies).
According to research compiled by ExerciseBike.net, Montana ranks 4th in the nation for food recalls per capita. I had to wrap my head around this for a minute, because when we think of food recalls we usually think of lettuce and vegetables (oftentimes from California) or processed foods that are made in giant factories not in Montana. Running a quick internet search, I couldn't find any recent recalls on Montana made foods that have been recalled. Looking at Montana.gov and food recalls in 2019, I couldn't find a single product that was produced or made in Montana. Perhaps I'm not comprehending the data correctly on the study? Anyway...
Here are the Top 5 states for food recalls per 100,000 people:
- Vermont 32.8
- Delaware 26.5
- New Hampshire 23.3
- Montana 19.9
- Wyoming 19.6
