Sirocco Enterprises, Inc. Issues Allergy Alert On Undeclared Soy And Wheat In Pat O’Brien’s Bloody Mary Cocktail Mix
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - December 23, 2011 - Sirocco Enterprises, Inc, Jefferson, LA is recalling its 33.8 fluid ounce (1 Liter) bottles of Pat O’Brien’s Bloody Mary Cocktail Mix because it contains undeclared soy and wheat. People who have allergies to soy and wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Bottles of the recalled Pat O’Brien’s Bloody Mary Cocktail Mix were distributed nationally in retail stores and through internet purveyors.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the Pat O’Brien’s Bloody Mary Cocktail Mix was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of soy and wheat. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a change in an ingredient.
Production and distribution of the product has been suspended until FDA and the company are certain that the problem has been corrected.
Consumers who have purchased 33.8 fluid ounce (1 Liter) bottles of Pat O’Brien’s Bloody Mary Cocktail Mix are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with any questions may contact the company at 1-504-834-1549 during the hours of 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM, CST.
