The Raymond-Hadley Corporation Issues Allergy Alert on Milk Contamination in Wegmans 17.2 Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix
800-252-5220, ext 303
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 12, 2012 - The Raymond-Hadley Corp. of Spencer, NY is recalling Wegmans Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie mixes because they may be contaminated with the undeclared allergen Milk. People who have an allergy to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Wegmans 17.2oz Double Chocolate Brownie mixes were distributed in the United States through the Wegmans retail stores.
The mixes are packaged under the Wegmans brand in chipboard boxes with the following markings on the packages:
Wegmans Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix 17.2OZ, UPC 077890283363, with Enjoy By Dates 30 Oct 2013 – 19 Dec 2013
The voluntary recall was initiated after it was discovered that chocolate chunks used in the mix were received in packaging that did not reveal the presence of the allergen milk. Subsequent investigation confirms milk as a possible cross-contaminate in the chocolate chunks used in the brownie mixes.
As of October 12, 2012, two reports of rash have been received.
Consumers who have purchased the product listed above are urged to return it to Wegmans for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the manufacturer at 1-800-252-2220, Monday – Friday 8:00am – 4:30pm EDT.
