Precautionary Recall Alert: Sara Lee Premium White Hamburger Buns in North Carolina and South Carolina
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Downers Grove, IL -- October 30, 2006 --Sara Lee Food & Beverage is conducting a voluntary recall of its 12 oz. Sara Lee Premium White Hamburger Buns produced at its Valdese, North Carolina bakery. This limited recall is being conducted as a precaution because the 4,826 packages included may contain undeclared milk, posing a potential risk to milk-allergic individuals because the ingredient statement does not include milk.
The product was sold and distributed to retailers and grocery stores in North Carolina and South Carolina and includes Sara Lee Premium White Hamburger Buns with the UPC Code 7294575177 and the production code SEPT 10 3452401226. These products are highly unlikely to be on store shelves as they are past the expiration date, but some may remain in consumer possession. The recall does not apply to any other Sara Lee brand bakery products in any other locations; it only applies to this specific product with the production code SEPT 10 3452401226. Consumers may return affected product to the store where it was purchased for a full refund.
To date, the company has received one report of an adverse reaction to the above product from a person with a known milk allergy.
The company initiated the recall after it discovered that this product contained milk that was distributed in packaging that did not include milk in its ingredient list.
Sara Lee is conducting this recall with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Consumers who may have questions or concerns should call Sara Lee’s toll-free consumer line at 1.800.889.3556. The consumer line is available from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday.
