Onions have so many beneficial factors. They contain antioxidants, help lower cholesterol levels and have anti-inflammatory properties.

Not only are they great for us, but they taste good too. From yellow to sweet, red and white, each one has its own taste and can be added to recipes to bring a lot of flavor.

I personally always order sauteed onions on my sandwiches and wraps, they have a delicious flavor to them. As for chips, sour cream and onion are the best. I guess you could call me an onion lover, that's for sure.

There was a recall on a popular brand of onions.


This recall was shared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, A&M Farms was the first to issue this recall on Vidalia onions. Onions in these certain states were recalled due to possible contamination. There's a chance that listeria is on these now possibly contaminated onions.
