Google Recipe Snippets

Back in July Google fixed a bug with recipe rich results but that bug may be resurfacing according to Lisa Bryan, a food blogger. She said starting around October 15th her site, and others, started to see the images of their recipes disappear from Google's search results. Forcing a new crawl fixes the issue temporarily and then it may disappear again.

Here is a screenshot of her site not showing the image:

She said on Twitter "It seems there's another recipe rich snippet bug. Images aren't showing in results (on numerous of my recipes). And I don't show in the recipe carousel (on a top ranked result) no matter how many times you click "show more." This started Oct 15 and got worse throughout the week. Impressions/rankings initially stayed the same, traffic plummeted without the images, now rankings are decreasing. And for Guacamole, the carousel says Carne Asada Fries."

Here are some screen shots:

Here is another complaint on this:

Do you see a similar issue with your recipe markup?
