Wilkins-Rogers, Inc. Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Milk in Washington Seafood Breader
410-465-5800 ext 260
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Ellicott City, MD -- November 11, 2006 -- Wilkins-Rogers, Inc. of Ellicott City, MD is recalling its 2 LB Washington Seafood Breader, because it contains undeclared milk product. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
Washington Seafood Breader was distributed in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Maine, North Carolina, and Missouri through retail outlets.
The Seafood Breader is packed in 2 LB poly bags and includes all use by dates from JAN 1707 to NOV0307.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing milk was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes. The issue has been corrected and all production after NOV 0307 does not contain milk products.
Consumers who have purchased Washington Seafood Breader should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-735-3585 ext 260.
