Robert's American Gourmet Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Wheat in Wheat-Free Chaos Snack Mix
Robert's American Gourmet
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Sea Cliff, NY -- January 13, 2006 -- Robert's American Gourmet of Sea Cliff, NY is recalling 153 cases (12 packages per case) of Robert's American Gourmet WHEAT FREE CHAOS Snack Mix as a precaution because a small number of packages may contain undeclared wheat (wheat pretzels). People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
Robert's American Gourmet WHEAT FREE CHAOS was distributed to distributors located in NJ, MA, CT, ME, NH, IN, CA, GA, and PA.
The product was sold in 6 oz. plastic bags with a "SELL BY DATE" MAR2806 (corresponds to March 28, 2006), and UPC # 15665 41025 5.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that some packages of the WHEAT FREE CHAOS actually contain wheat pretzels which were not listed on the label. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a scheduling error at the manufacturing plant. Production was temporarily ceased and the problem has been corrected.
Consumers who have purchased Robert's American Gourmet WHEAT FREE CHAOS, GLUTEN FREE Snack Mix are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-626-7557.
