Are you, like me, completely fascinated by all the news about COVID-19? As a doctor, even I am becoming a bit of a hypochondriac. Maybe you have started wondering: Could I, right now, have the dreaded virus, lurking somewhere in my body? Unfortunately, it's not as simple as opening your mouth in front of the mirror, poking out your tongue and saying "Ah!"—even if you do have a fine pair of tonsils! Read on to discover eight warning signs COVID-19 is in your body—and how to treat them. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.1 You Have a FeverYou may not believe it, but a fever is actually a good thing. You develop one when you have an infection because your immune system has been activated and is working hard on the front line—to defend you from the invading virus. The virus cannot survive at higher temperatures. Your body releases heat shock proteins which help protect your own cells from damage. Some research studies have shown people who have a fever have a better prognosis than those who do not.2 How to Treat Your FeverIt may seem counterintuitive but in fact, try not to get anxious about lowering the fever. You can take Tylenol within the prescribed doses. Drink plenty of fluids and cool yourself with a damp sponge and a fan."Although a fever technically is any body temperature above the normal of 98.6 F (37 C), in practice a person is usually not considered to have a significant fever until the temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C)," says MedicineNet. 3 You Have a Dry CoughCough is a common symptom of COVID-19, and common at this time of year due to hay fever and asthma. The typical COVID-19 cough is dry and irritating. 4 How to Treat Your CoughThe National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has issued recent guidance about treating cough with COVID-19. * Encourage patients to sit up and avoid lying flat. * Take 1 teaspoon of honey when needed. * If the cough is distressing, a doctor might prescribe a codeine linctus/codeine phosphate tablet, 15-30 mg every 4 hours, the maximum dosage is 4 doses in 24 hours.Always discuss taking any medication with your healthcare provider in advance.5 You Have Shortness of BreathIf you are living with COVID-19 infection at home, breathlessness may be a troublesome symptom. 6 How to Treat Your Shortness of BreathIf you feel breathless, you should seek medical help right away. COVID-19 infections can worsen rapidly, and it is not possible to assess the severity via the Internet.Here are further NICE 2020 recommendations: * First, try to stay calm. Anxiety makes breathlessness feel much worse. * Keep your bedroom cool and open the window. * Concentrate on your breathing, sit upright, try to relax your shoulders. * Sometimes leaning forward and gripping something like the back of a chair may help. * Some people get relief with pursed-lip breathing. This means breathing in through your nose, waiting a few seconds, then breathing out slowly over four seconds with pursed lips. Breathing against the pursed lips creates pressure in the airways and helps relieve the sensation of breathlessness.TAKE NOTE: Other signs of respiratory distress are blue lips, blue fingernails/fingers and toes, shaky hands, confusion and dizziness. Call your doctor if you experience any shortness of breath whatsoever.7 You Have a Sore ThroatSore throats are very common with any respiratory infections. Although unpleasant, they usually settle as the infection settles. Most sore throats don't need any treatment. If your sore throat is especially bad, do ask a doctor to check it out in case you have tonsillitis for example.8 How to Treat Your Sore ThroatSore throats can be eased by drinking plenty of fluids, sucking lozenges, gargling with salt water, and/or the use of throat sprays. Sucking an ice cube or eating an ice pop may help. 9 You Have DiarrheaAround half of all people infected with COVID-19 have digestive symptoms; 18% present with diarrhea, vomiting or abdominal pain. Usually, this is just up to three loose stools per day. RELATED: COVID Mistakes You Should Never Make10 How to Treat Digestive SymptomsIt's important to drink plenty of fluids and not become dehydrated, so consider the use of rehydration sachets or a drink like Gatorade. Gastroenterologists sometimes prescribe antibiotics or antivirals for infective diarrhea due to changes in the gut flora that occur in a COVID-19 infection. Of note, in Wuhan, the Chinese treated COVID-19 diarrhea with probiotics.11 You Have Chills and Muscle PainsChills and muscle pains are common non-specific signs of many infections. They may, however, be a sign of more severe infection. Chills occur when your core body temperature has increased, and your peripheral muscles then contract and relax to create more body heat. Muscles feel painful and may be tender to touch because they are being directly damaged by the virus. 12 How to Treat Your Chills and Muscle PainsYou can try a variety of treatments for muscle pains such as Tylenol, ice, gentle stretching, or massage.13 You Have a New Loss of Taste or SmellA recent study in the International Forum of Allergy and Rhinology reported that if you have a loss of smell and taste, you are 10 times more likely to be infected with COVID-19 than have any other infective cause. At the time of the study, 70% of COVID-19 patients reported their symptoms were improving. Loss of taste and smell is common after many respiratory infections but seems even more common as a presenting symptom of COVID-19 infection. 14 How to Treat Your Loss of Taste of SmellIt seems more commonly found in people with only mild infection. Try not to forget to eat, as you may have a reduced appetite.15 You Have FatigueFatigue is stated in the publications from Wuhan, as one of the main presenting features of COVID-19 infection. In one report—46% of patients complained of extreme fatigue in the early stages of the disease. Fatigue is a common symptom of many different diseases, so is not specific to COVID-19 infections.16 How to Treat Your FatigueYou'll have a full-body tiredness. So do what you know is right—and rest that body.RELATED: I'm a Doctor and Here's When You Can Safely Keep Your Mask Off17 One Final Note from the DoctorLook out for these emergency warning signs* for COVID-19.

Sure, the country is slowly beginning to reopen, but you can't let your guard down when it comes to COVID-19. The virus is still alive and well, and infecting people everywhere from the grocery store to parks and beaches. However, this doesn't mean you have to spend the summer indoors. It simply requires a little diligence, patience, and understanding about how the disease is spread. There are certain mistakes that many people are making when they leave the house putting them at risk of infection. To stay safe, here are 14 easily avoidable mistakes, according to experts. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.1 You're Wearing Face Masks or Face Coverings Incorrectly"If you are going into an area of congestion, I would definitely wear a mask," says Heidi J. Zapata, MD, a Yale Medicine infectious disease expert. However, wearing a face mask isn't enough. It has to be worn correctly to be effective. "I know they are hard to wear, and difficult to wear with glasses (lens fog up). However, if you are going into an area of congestion, and you wear the mask just over your mouth, then you can still be infected by inhaling through your nose," she points out. "You can also sneeze and possibly infect those around you." The Rx: Therefore, she suggests wearing your mask over your nose and mouth to avoid error.2 You're Don't Know What Six Feet Apart Looks LikeIf you have left the house recently, you have probably noticed that everyone seems to have a different idea what six feet looks like. "Not everyone is doing this correctly," Dr. Zapata maintains. For example, if you decide to take a walk with your friend in the park, it is admittedly hard to walk and talk with someone side by side and still stay six feet apart in a narrow path or sidewalk. "I am seeing many people take a walk and are only one or two feet apart," she says. The Rx: She suggests taking out a tape measure if you aren't clear on what the social distancing recommendation looks like. "One thing to consider would be to sit down on the grass, and measure the 6 feet and have a conversation at a distance." Also, remember six feet is about two arms lengths apart, or the length of a twin-size bed.3 You're Bringing the Infection InsideWhen you return home from an outing, explains Purvi Parikh, MD, allergist with Allergy&Asthma Network, you could be bringing the virus home with you via your clothing and masks. The Rx: "When you reach home, leave shoes outside and wash all clothing including homemade masks," she suggests. 4 You're Unconsciously TouchingWhen you go to a public place like a supermarket, be conscious of what you touch, urges Dr. Zapata. "For example you go to the supermarket, and are wearing a mask, and then touch a door knob/handle, and then grab the handle for the food cart. You then decide to grab some milk. Keep track of what you are touching, and try to clean your hands with hand sanitizer often," she suggests. Otherwise, if you rub your eyes or touch your face after having touched one of many objects, it would be an easy way of getting infected. The Rx: "We often do not keep track of touching our faces," she continues. "Remember these objects are touched by hundreds if not thousands of people every day." Other examples of items to be conscious of include elevator buttons, railings on stairs, and credit card machines. 5 You're Not Being Considerate of Others When Going for a Walk or RunEveryone wants to get some fresh air and exercise, but trails can be dangerous if you don't follow the rules. The Rx: "If you are on the same path for example in a park and are going for a jog, go around the person that is in front of you (give it a six feet radius), and keep jogging or walking," Dr. Zapata urges. "No one wants someone to breathe heavily on them during this time."6 You're Not Waiting Your TurnRemember back in preschool when you learned the importance of taking turns? Well, this is a good time to utilize that skill. "For example, if someone is at an aisle at a supermarket and is picking a food item, wait until they are done to go near that aisle (can wait patiently six feet apart)," Dr. Zapata suggests. "Of course this requires consideration on both ends."The Rx: Many markets and doctors' offices are placing stickers on the ground that note where to stand; follow them. This goes for elevators also. Some buildings will only allow two people into one car per time; this is for your own safety.7 You're Drinking Out of a Drinking Fountain or Using a Communal Water DispenserWhile the water inside of a drinking fountain or communal water dispenser is safe to drink, experts point out that given the fact that a number of mouths and noses come into close contact with the tap, you should probably avoid them. Also, to get water out of a fountain or dispenser you usually have to come into contact with a button or lever—which means other people have likely touched it too. The Rx: To be safe, you might want to bring a bottle of water with you instead. 8 You're Using Public RestroomsIn a blog post that has since gone viral, Erin S. Bromage, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth reveals some of the riskiest situations for COVID-19 infection. Due to the fact that bathrooms are generally some of the germiest spots, they made the list. "Bathrooms have a lot of high touch surfaces, door handles, faucets, stall doors. So fomite transfer risk in this environment can be high," he explains. The Rx: While it is still unclear whether infectious material can be released in feces, "we do know that toilet flushing does aerosolize many droplets," he points out. "Treat public bathrooms with extra caution (surface and air), until we know more about the risk."9 You're Not Taking Account of AirflowOne of the most important messages of Dr. Bromage's blog post has to do with airflow. He points to research finding that an overwhelming majority of the cases examined via contact tracing around the world, only a single outbreak was reported from an outdoor event—and this has to do with airflow. "Indoor spaces, with limited air exchange or recycled air and lots of people, are concerning from a transmission standpoint," he explains. The Rx: While social distancing suggestions—standing 6 feet apart—are effective in preventing transmission in open air spaces, all bets are off when you are indoors. "If I am outside, and I walk past someone, remember it is 'dose and time' needed for infection," he points out. "You would have to be in their airstream for 5+ minutes for a chance of infection." However, if you are in a poorly ventilated space with recycled air, infection will occur much more quickly. 10 You're Spending Too Much Time in One Crowded Indoor SpaceWhen you are at the grocery store or any other common indoor space, avoid taking your time. Dr. Bromage points out that there are various factors you need to take into consideration when assessing the risk of infection (via respiration). These include the volume of the air space, the number of people in the space, and how long people are spending in the space. The Rx: Basically, the longer you spend in a crowded store, the more likely your chances of infection are. As Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has said: "Outdoors is always better than indoors."RELATED: COVID Mistakes You Should Never Make11 You're Eating at RestaurantsDr. Bromage explains that due to airflow in most restaurants, respiratory droplets can travel more than six feet through the air. And, the longer you spend dining, the chances of becoming infected increase. In an example he provides, one infected person had dinner with nine friends. "During this meal, the asymptomatic carrier released low-levels of virus into the air from their breathing," he explains, with airflow from right to left. Nearly half of the people at his table became sick within the week, 75 percent of people sitting at the adjacent downwind table became infected, and 2 of the 7 people on the upwind table. However, people sitting at tables out of the main airflow were infected. The Rx: After months of eating at home, the idea of dining out at a restaurant is very enticing. However, it's important to keep in mind that COVID-19 can be easily spread in eating establishments—and not just via touching.12 You've Gained Some WeightI get it—you've been stuck inside, and now can't wait to eat and drink yourself silly at bars and restaurants. But chances are you haven't been eating that great while "stuck indoors." A healthy and balanced diet keeps your immune system strong, and keeping your immune system strong should be a priority during this pandemic.The Rx: If you've gained weight during self-isolation, eat right by visiting our website.13 You're Wearing Gloves ImproperlyMany people consider gloves a foolproof way to protect themselves from coming into contact with the virus. However, if you aren't following proper glove-wearing procedure—including taking them off correctly and washing or sanitizing your hands immediately after removing them—using them might do more harm than good. The Rx: "Gloves are not helpful unless you are changing or washing them frequently as they also get contaminated," explains Dr. Parikh. "It is probably best to keep washing your hands."14 You're Attending Celebrations, Funerals or Other Group GatheringsWhile it may be tempting to attend a group gathering—especially when it involves family, celebration, or mourning—in his blog Dr. Bromage points out that these accounted for 10 percent of "early spreader events." He shares a true story of an individual who was infected with the virus but hadn't yet experienced symptoms. The man shared a takeout meal with family members, serving it out of a common dish. The next day he went to a funeral where he hugged a few people. He also attended a birthday party, hugging many of the people there. By the time he started showing symptoms, was put on a ventilator, and later passed away, he had infected both the people he shared the meal with, and several people from the funeral and birthday party. And they in turn, infected others. The Rx: In total, one man was directly responsible for infecting 16 people between the ages of 5 and 86 and three deaths. Remember that before you congregate, even if your city allows group gatherings.

When you first heard about the coronavirus, chances are you were told the symptoms would last 2 to 14 days, if you felt them at all. But now that the COVID-19 has been on these shores for a while, doctors are finding that certain symptoms can last for weeks and sometimes months—even after the patient tests negative for COVID-19. Here's a list of those problems that are currently being reported. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.1 Chest Pain and DiscomfortI feel "a burning and tingling across my chest and my neck that came with a hot flash," Kerri Noeth, who is on day 36, told WABC News. "It's just been a wide range of lingering symptoms, particularly heart palpitations, and extreme discomfort in my chest and in my ribs." 2 Lack of Smell and TasteOne symptom that has come up for a lot of people is losing the ability to taste and smell—normally at the beginning, but for some, it hasn't returned. "I would love to get my sense of taste and smell back," Susan Silverman, who was on day 38, told WABC News.3 VertigoSilverman also had vertigo. "Vertigo is a sensation of feeling off balance," reports WebMD. "If you have these dizzy spells, you might feel like you are spinning or that the world around you is spinning."4 Lung Tissue Damage"Chronic fatigue after recovery from a COVID-19 infection is possible and some people who recover continue to feel respiratory symptoms as a result of damage to lung tissue," says Dr. Ari Bernstein, MD, advisor for Fruit Street Health and CovidMD. "Researchers have also found that long term scarring of the lungs, known as fibrosis, can be a problem, which could cause varying levels of long term breathing impairments."5 Heart Issues One could experience heart palpitations and mild heart dysfunction. According to WebMD, "palpitations make you feel like your heart is beating too hard or too fast, skipping a beat, or fluttering." 6 You Have a Persistent Dry Cough"The hacking dry cough that is present in COVID is due to irritation of the lung tissue. As air enters the lungs and goes past the irritated tissue, it triggers the cough," says Dr. Leann Poston. "It's likely that your cough will still linger until your body completely heals any damaged tissue," says Dr. Seema Sarin, Director of Lifestyle Medicine, EHE Health.RELATED: COVID Mistakes You Should Never Make7 Post-ICU Syndrome"This is a common outcome of having to be intubated and housed in an intensive care unit for a long period of time, which isn't uncommon in COVID-19 patients who need hospitalization," says Dr. Christine Traxler. "The main symptoms seen are similar to PTSD, with anxiety, depression, nightmares, flashbacks, and a higher risk for suicide and long-term mental and physical health complications coming out of the stress of this type of medical experience."8 Shortness of Breath"As you recover, you may notice that at rest, you can breathe fine," says Dr. Poston. "But as the demand for oxygen increases (i.e., increased activity), you are short of breath." "I've been short of breath for two months, with a firey feeling in my lungs," one patient tells Eat This, Not That! Health. "Even after testing negative for the virus, with my oxygen levels looking OK, the constricting feeling remains." RELATED: I'm a Doctor and Here's When You Can Safely Keep Your Mask Off9 Brain Damage"For those patients who were more seriously ill with COVID-19, the changes in lung and kidney function could lead to the presence of chemicals in the blood that are toxic to the brain," says Dr. James Giordano, Professor of Neurology and Biochemistry at Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington, DC. "The effects of these chemicals can cause changes in brain function, some of which may last for several weeks to months (if not longer in some cases)." 10 Stroke-Like Symptoms"There is evidence that, for young people in particular, the first evidence of a COVID-19 infection could be a stroke due to a blockage of a major artery supplying the brain," Dr. Traxler. "If not treated within a few hours after onset, the stroke symptoms are likely to persist and might include arm and leg weakness, facial droop, swallowing problems, balance issues, and speech deficits."11 Symptoms like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome a.k.a. Myalgic EncephalomyelitisDr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, warned many patients develop post-viral syndrome with symptoms resembling chronic fatigue syndrome a.k.a. myalgic encephalomyelitis. "Brain fog, fatigue, and difficulty in concentrating," Dr. Fauci said at the International AIDS Conference. "So this is something we really need to seriously look at because it very well might be a post-viral syndrome associated with COVID-19." Traditional ME can last a lifetime.12 Make a Plan for Your RecoveryWork with your medical care team to determine the best course of action for you. Ask for second opinions if you aren't satisfied. Keep a diary, so they can understand what you're feeling and when. And remember this inconvenient truth: Doctors are still learning about the virus. So although they may not be able to help you, informing them about any long-lasting symptoms will eventually help the experts better understand COVID-19.

Mask wearing has never been seen as more essential to stopping coronavirus from spreading. "A new long-term forecast predicts a significant increase in Covid-19 deaths in the U.S. by the new year," reports Bloomberg. "Under the latest projections from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington's School of Medicine, Covid-19 deaths could rise to 410,451 by the end of 2020. In a worst-case scenario, there could be 620,029 fatalities, according to the estimates.""The difference between the projected and worst-case scenarios comes down to how diligent authorities are in mandating masks and social distancing, according to the report."While most experts strongly encourage everyone—even those showing no symptoms of COVID-19—to wear a protective face mask while out in public in order to prevent the spread, there are still people who refuse to do so. However, a new study offers evidence that mask-wearing can dramatically reduce the non-contact transmission rate of the highly infectious and potentially deadly virus. Read on to see what he said, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. Airborne Particles Plunged 75%According to researchers from the University of Hong Kong's department of microbiology, in the medical journal Clinical Infectious Diseases, the COVID-19 transmission rate via respiratory droplets or airborne particles plunged by as much as 75% when face masks were used—with hamsters at least. "In our hamster experiment, it shows very clearly that if infected hamsters or humans—especially asymptomatic or symptomatic ones—put on masks, they actually protect other people. That's the strongest result we showed here," Dr. Yuen Kwok-yung, a leading microbiologist from the university and leader of the study, explained. Before you laugh: Researchers chose the rodents as the test subject due to their enzyme receptor similarity to humans. The hamsters were divided into two separate cages, one group that was healthy, and another that had been infected with the virus. The researchers then played out three separate scenarios. In the first, where mask barriers were placed over the cages holding the infected rodents, the second, masks only covering the healthy hamsters, and the third, which involved no masks at all. There was also a fan blowing virus particles between the cages, in order to ensure exposure. In the third scenario, when no masks were used at all, ⅔—66.7%—of the hamsters were infected with COVID-19 within a week. When the barrier was placed over the cage housing the infected hamsters, the rate of infection plummeted to 16.7%. And, interestingly enough, when the masks covered the cages of the health hamsters, the infection rate fell to 33%—implying that wearing a face covering isn't just doing your part to prevent spreading the virus to other people, if you are unknowingly carrying it, but you are also getting a decent amount of protection from others, as well. Study authors also noted that the hamsters who did get infected despite there being a mask barrier, had less COVID-19 in their bodies to those who were maskless. RELATED: COVID Mistakes You Should Never Make The Effectiveness of Face Masks is "Huge""The findings implied to the world and the public is that the effectiveness of mask-wearing against the coronavirus pandemic is huge," Yuen said, according to South China Morning Post. Yuen, who claims he has seen a drop in mask wearing in recent weeks, hopes his findings will motivate people to continue wearing masks when they are out in public — even as temperatures are increasing — in order to quell invisible transmission of the virus. "I know wearing masks will be difficult during the summertime. My advice is especially when you are in an indoor or closed environment where there's no free air exchange, in crowded places or on public transport, you must wear a mask," he suggests.

The FDA and CDC have warned of several product recalls this summer tied to outbreaks of foodborne illnesses. The biggest nation-wide recall between June and August was due to a major Salmonella contamination in the produce aisle, but there have also been reports of illnesses caused by Listeria, as well as several cases of undeclared allergens on products put out by major food companies like Frito-Lay.Related: The 1 Food That Causes Foodborne Illness, According to ExpertsWhile most of these products were removed from grocery shelves quickly, some shelf-stable items and longer-lasting produce could still be lingering in your kitchen. Read on to find out what items have been affected.And make sure you don't miss What Happens to Your Body When You Drink a Smoothie Every Day.Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter to get the latest grocery news delivered straight to your inbox.1 Onions and Onion-Containing ProductsWhat started as an unknown Salmonella outbreak, spanning 15 states and making hundreds of people ill in late July and early August, eventually ended up being tied to onions. The CDC warned the public about recalls of red, yellow, white, and sweet yellow onions produced by food company Thomson International, and sold in all 50 states by retailers like Walmart, Kroger, Fred Meyer, Publix, Giant Eagle, Food Lion, and H-E-B. Because it's nearly impossible to trace the origins of loose onions and onions sold under a variety of brand names, the CDC advises to discard any onions you still may have in your pantry, that were purchased between May and July. Related products potentially containing said onions were recalled as well—from cheese dips and salsas, to a variety of pre-packaged foods at Walmart, Kroger, etc.2 Frozen ShrimpSalmonella was also found on frozen shrimp. Various sizes of frozen cooked, peeled, and deveined shrimp distributed by Kader Exports and sold under several brand names—Aqua Star Reserve, Censea, Fresh Market, Kirkland, Tops, Unistar, Wellsley Farms—between February and mid-May were pulled off the grocery shelves. While no cases of illness have been reported due to these products, it's advisable you double check frozen shrimp that you purchased earlier this year, to make sure you don't still have one of the recalled bags in your freezer.3 Citruses and Other Wegmans ItemsSupermarket chain Wegmans has recalled various products this August due to contamination with Listeria, a bacteria that can cause a serious infection. The items on the recall list were a 4-lb. bag of Valencia oranges, 2-lb. bag of lemons, bulk lemons, a variety of in-store produced seafood, and any restaurant food items that contain fresh lemon. If you've purchased any of these products at Wegmans locations in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, and Brooklyn and Harrison, NY between July 31 and Aug. 7, you should discard them.4 PeachesPeaches were another source of Salmonella infections this summer. In August, the FDA warned of a recall of peaches packed or supplied by Prima Wawona or Wawona Packing Company from June 1 through Aug. 3, as well as bagged Wawona and Wawona Organic peaches distributed and sold from June 1 through Aug. 19. The fruits were sold by retailers like Walmart, Target, and Aldi, and have caused at least 68 cases of illness. Furthermore, products containing these peaches were part of the recall, too.5 Progresso Chicken SoupThe soup giant recalled thousands of pounds of its chicken soup product when it was brought to their attention that a batch of 14-oz. cans doesn't actually contain chicken soup, but instead carries an unidentified pork and beef product. Due to the accidental switcheroo at one of the brand's packaging plants, the product also contains undeclared allergens like soy and dairy. Here's how to identify the affected cans.6 Lay's Potato ChipsA mixup at a Frito-Lay facility could expose customers to undeclared dairy. The brand recently had to pull 1-oz., 1 1/2-oz., 2 5/8-oz., 7 3/4-oz., 12 1/2-oz. and 15 1/2-oz. bags of Barbecue Flavored Potato Chips from circulation, after customers noticed they were filled with the wrong chips. The affected bags were sold in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.7 Chicken SaladVirginia-based company Ukrop's Homestyle Foods is recalling its chicken salad, found in the refrigerated section of grocery stores across North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, and West Virginia. The product, packaged in 15-oz. containers, contains undeclared almonds, which could affect those with nut allergies. Read more about this recall here.8 Squash NoodlesThe latest case of produce recall due to Listeria comes from Giant Food Stores, a grocery chain operating more than 160 locations in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C. The grocer is recalling a house-brand squash noodle medley, a combo of noodle-fied zucchini, yellow squash, and butternut squash, due to a contamination with the bacteria. If you've purchased this product at one of their locations between Aug. 8 and Aug. 19, you're advised to discard it.
