Another round of recent recalls may have you looking at everything you have in your pantry and freezer. Peppermint baking chips and chicken alfredo pizza are among the latest food recalls.

In a company announcement, posted on the U. S. Food & Drug Administration website, "Lily’s Sweets, is voluntarily recalling 18,855 cases of 7-ounce Peppermint Flavor Baking Chips due to the presence of soy lecithin. People who have a severe allergy or sensitivity to soy should not consume these products. The product was a limited holiday seasonal offering available exclusively at Walmart stores in the United States.  No other Lily’s products are included in this recall."

Lily Sweets confirmed that "the error was discovered after consumers contacted the company and reported finding the white candy pieces mixed with Lily’s Peppermint Flavor Baking Chips. We have determined that the error occurred at a co-manufacturer. The white disc-shaped candy pieces contain soy lecithin, sugar, and other ingredients that are not present in Lily’s Peppermint Flavor chips. Individuals with a severe allergy to soy should not consume this product."
