It's always cheaper to recall expired produce as it has to be taken off the shelves anyway. No testing before shipping, what a reckless business behavior expecially as they have several recalls per year. They don't care about consumers health at all. Who wants to buy anything from this company at all!?!

you don't know what you are talking about. All product is tested before it goes out. these products go through many hands before they are tested by FDA and a positive result does not mean the company did anything wrong. There were no injuries and it is not cheaper to recall. I deal with food safety every day.
