Bell's Fishery Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Egg, Soy and Milk products in Bell's Whitefish Pate
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- October 25, 2007 -- Bell's Fishery of Mackinaw City is recalling all of its packages of Bell's Whitefish Pate because they contain undeclared egg, soy, and milk products. People who have allergies to egg, soy or milk products run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled Bell's Whitefish Pate was sold in Michigan at Bell's Fishery located at 229 S Huron St. in Mackinac City, and Biindigen Gas Station located at 2169 US 31 North, in Petoskey.
The product comes in an 8 ounce or 16 ounce plastic container marked with lot #100607, expiration date 10-20-07, or lot # 100807, expiration date 10-28-07.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg, soy, and milk as ingredients in the Bell's Whitefish Pate.
Production of the product has been suspended until FDA and Bell's Fishery is certain that the labeling problem has been corrected.

the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Bell's Fishery at 1-231-436-7821.
