Conifer Specialties, Inc. Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Sulfur Dioxide in Canterbury Naturals All Natural Cinnamon Raisin Quick Bread Mix
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Conifer Specialties, Inc., PO Box 177 Medina, Washington is recalling 8016 units of "Canterbury Naturals All Natural Cinnamon Raisin Quick Bread Mix" because it contains undeclared Sulfur Dioxide. People who have severe sensitivity to Sulfur Dioxide run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The recalled "Canterbury Naturals Cinnamon Raisin Quick Bread Mix" was distributed throughout the United States and sold via retail stores, mail order and direct delivery.
The product is packaged in a carton containing one 16 ounce packet of bread mix, one two ounce packet of raisins and one quarter ounce packet of cinnamon under the brand of Canterbury Naturals. The product name is All Natural Cinnamon Raisin Quick Bread Mix and has a drawing of a "grape bunch" underneath the name. The following lot codes, which can be located on the bottom of the carton, will be involved in the recall: 6174 1, 6196 1, 6277 1 and 7104 1.
At the time of this release no illnesses have been reported to Conifer, Specialties, Inc. or its distributors.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the Golden Raisins containing Sulfur Dioxide were distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of Sulfur Dioxide. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a breakdown in the company’s product development regarding ingredient classification.
If you have purchased this product please destroy the contents of the carton immediately, retaining the carton for proof of purchase, and contact Conifer Specialties, Inc. by phone at 1.800.588.9160 for replacement or reimbursement.
