Recalling products over health and safety concerns is becoming nearly daily news now. Just this week, consumers in the Northeast were informed of the recall of specific lots of the Royal Ice Cream while the recall of Serta mattresses sold online also made news.

Royal Ice Cream Recalled Lots of Batch Ice Cream reported on Tuesday (February 8) that the Royal Ice Cream company is recalling specific lots of multiple Batch Ice Cream flavors.
