House-Autry Mills Inc. is recalling tartar sauce because the company’s “co-manufacturer” has verified spoilage associated with the product.
The company reports sending two samples to two different laboratories, but results were not yet available when House-Autry provided the Food and Drug Administration its recall notice.
Several factors cause food spoilage, making items unsuitable for consumption. Light, oxygen, heat, humidity, temperature and spoilage bacteria can all affect both the safety and quality of perishable foods. When subject to these factors, foods will gradually decline, according to the recall notice.
