FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE --Northfield, Ill.-- July 10, 2007 --- Karlin Food Products, Inc., of Northfield, IL, is recalling its 32-oz (2-lb) cartons of "Market Basket Complete Pancake & Waffle Mix" because it contains undeclared milk. People who have allergies to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The recalled "Market Basket, Complete Pancake & Waffle Mix" was distributed in the States of Massachusetts and New Hampshire, DeMoulas Super Markets/Market Basket retail stores.
The product comes in a 32-oz (2-lb) red carton with UPC # 49705-14852 on the bottom and an expiration date of 08 29 07 stamped on the top.
