Safety is a top concern for not just parents but Walmart stores here in Alabama. Retailers all over the United States, Canada, and Mexico have received this popular recalled item.

Back in March, there was a food recall on a widely consumed product at Walmart. It was definitely scary because I had this product in my pantry at the time of the recall.

Luckily, my family wasn't harmed due to the recall of pancake batter that month.

Now there's a new recall on some of the most popular candies sold in stores.

Skittles, Starburst, and Life Savers are all part of the latest food recall.
