There's no denying that Thorp Fruit is an amazing marketplace for local and fresh foods, but if you've shopped there recently in their bulk section for these tasty snacks, you might want to check your receipt.

Western Mixers Produce & Nuts, Inc. announced a recall on May 10, 2024 of its Yogurt Covered Pretzels, as they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. While no illness has been reported yet, the company is taking the precaution to prevent possible sickness. Per the recall alert:
