Here's the latest installment of the Recall Roundup, which provides a brief recap of the latest recalls involving the food industry.

One bit of recall business was covered on the Food Manufacturing website on Monday: The Associated Press reported that Roland Foods was recalling more than 21,000 cans of roasted red peppers after customers reported finding glass fragments.

According to the AP report:

The New York-based company said Friday the voluntary recall applies only to cans that are 5 pounds and 8 ounces. It says the products were shipped to food distributors and supermarket chains across the U.S. and Canada between March 1 and March 28.

In other food industry recall news:

Snyder's-Lance on April 1 announced it was voluntarily recalling a limited number of Emerald brand roasted and salted cashew halves and pieces that were distributed nationwide due to potential glass contamination, according to a news release published to the Food and Drug Administration website.

According to the FDA news release:

No injuries have been reported to date. We are recalling these products because they may contain small pieces of glass that could potentially cause injury. Although our investigation is ongoing, we believe the source of the glass to be the raw cashews received from one of our suppliers under a specific lot code.

A news release published to the FDA website on April 1 announced that Alimento Congelados, S.A. was recalling 1,800 cases of frozen broccoli cuts due to potential listeria contamination.
