Recalls of peanut based products have been all over the news in recent weeks but a professor at Ohio State University thinks many Ohioans might not be getting those messages. Neal Hooker says a study of the tomato and jalapeno pepper recalls last summer shows many people were still eating those foods even after they had been recalled.
Hooker says his study suggests a good way to let people know about food recalls would be to involve grocery stores that offer customer loyalty cards. Hooker says those cards track individual purchases. When one of the products purchased shows up in a recall, Hooker says the store could let the customers know about it.
