Beware: Popular Prepared Meal on Recall List in Massachusetts
Sometimes the daily routine can get so busy that you just don't have time to cook so as a result you throw something quick in the microwave that is already prepared for you. Next time you do that make sure you double-check to see which brand and entree you're about to consume as there is another recall that was recently released to the public and it affects Massachusetts consumers.
