|RE:||FOOD RECALL ADVISORY: Health Advisory for Olives Sold by Ocean State Job Lot Stores|
Mediterranean Olives: Calcidica Sweet, produced by Bel Frantoio and packaged in 34-oz. plastic containers, were sold in OSJL stores in New York and throughout the Northeast (Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine). This product is being voluntarily recalled because it is labeled “Keep
Refrigerated,” but was sold at room temperature, making it susceptible to contamination with Clostridium botulinum.
