The Defense Commissary Agency has publicized this recall to all its stores, said Richard Stith, Chief, Public Health Division, DeCA headquarters at Fort Lee, Virginia. Whenever a commissary has recalled or withdrawn products in its inventory, they are immediately removed from store shelves.
Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring mold by-product produced by certain fungi that are found on agricultural crops such as corn, peanuts and tree nuts and can be harmful if consumed in significant quantities.
