Another coffee that might give you more of a lift than you bargained for:

The FDA announced last week that Grand Prairie Coffee LLC is voluntarily recalling some of their “New of Kopi Jantan Tradisional Natural Herbs Coffee” due to undeclared ingredients, including desmethyl carbodenafil and milk, an instant mix with a natural ingredient similar to what’s found in Viagra.

Some recalls driven by public opinion rather than product quality:

The strangest recall products that have divided opinion, such as Clarks being forced to withdraw a girls’ school shoe after accusations of sexism.
