Garden-Fresh Foods Issues Allergy Alert On Undeclared Milk in 16-Ounce Archer Farms Potato Salad
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – September 21, 2009 – Garden-Fresh Foods, Inc. of 726 South 12th Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin is recalling 16-ounce containers of Archer Farms Potato Salad with an expiration date of 10/04/2009 because they may contain undeclared milk allergens. People who have allergies to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this undeclared product.
The recalled 16-ounce Archer Farms Potato Salad were distributed nationwide at SuperTarget retail stores.
The product is sold in a 16-ounce square plastic container. The product is marked with UPC number 0 85239 40228 3 and an expiration of 10/04/2009. Only this product marked with this code date is being recalled. No illness has been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a breakdown in Garden-Fresh Food’s production and packaging process.
Consumers who have purchased 16-ounce Archer Farms Potato Salad with the code date of 10/04/2009 are urged to return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with a question may contact Garden-Fresh Foods at 1-800-645-3367.
