As mentioned, the majority of food recalls aren't a big deal for most people because they involve mislabeling. This can, however, be a matter of life and death for those with severe food allergies. Because these types of recalls don't affect the health of the majority, they don't always get much attention. If you do have a serious food allergy and want to be kept up-to-date on recalls, you can sign up for automatic alerts on your phone, by RSS feed, or by email.
