Martin's Famous Pastry Shoppe Inc. Issues an Allergy Alert on Undeclared Wheat and Dairy in Potatobred Soft Cubed Stuffing
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Chambersburg, PA -- November 21, 2005 -- Martin's Famous Pastry Shoppe Inc of Chambersburg, PA is recalling MARTIN'S POTATOBRED SOFT CUBED STUFFING with a sell-by date of Feb 8 2006, Feb 15 2006, Feb 22 2006, Mar 01 2006, Mar 08 2006, and Mar 15 2006 because it may contain undeclared Wheat and Dairy product. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to Wheat and/or Dairy run the risk of an allergic reaction if they consume these products.
MARTIN'S POTATOBRED SOFT CUBED STUFFING was distributed in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida by Direct Store Delivery to Retail Supermarkets/Grocery Stores.
The product can be identified by a 12 oz yellow and red package with Martin's Famous Dutch Taste Potatobred Soft Cubed Stuffing on the front of the package.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing Wheat and Dairy ingredients was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of Wheat and Dairy. Subsequent investigation indicates the packaging supplier printing this information incorrectly caused the problem.
Packages with a sell-by date of March 22 06 and later, and Feb 1 06 and earlier are labeled correctly.
Consumers who have purchased Martin's Potatobred Soft Cubed Stuffing with a "sell-by" date of Feb 8 2006, Feb 15 2006, Feb 22 2006, Mar 01 2006, Mar 08 2006, and Mar 15 2006, are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
