Sole Grano LLC Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Almonds & Wheat in Organic Cranberry Low Fat Granola
SOLE GRANO LLC Of Fair Lawn, NJ is Recalling Its 12 Oz. Fairway – Like No Other Market Organic Cranberry Low Fat Granola, Because It May Contain Undeclared Almond and Wheat Allergens
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — January 30, 2015 — SOLE GRANO LLC of Fair Lawn, NJ is recalling its 12 oz. Fairway – Like No Other Market Organic Cranberry Low Fat Granola, because it may contain undeclared almond and wheat allergens. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to almonds or wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Fairway – Like No Other Market Organic Cranberry Low Fat Granola was sold at fifteen Fairway Stores in New Jersey, Connecticut and New York.
The product is sold in clear plastic 12 oz. containers labeled as Fairway – Like No Other Market Organic Cranberry Low Fat Granola with UPC Code 758940600155 and the following Lot # and Expiration Dates printed on the labels on the side of the products:
Lot# 11142017 Expiration Date 10/01/2015
Lot# 12142018 Expiration Date 10/01/2015
Lot# 01152008 Expiration Date 01/25/2016
No other Fairway branded products were affected by this voluntary recall.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered by Fairway on the 28th of January 2015 after a customer complained to the Store Manager that the product contains almonds although it was not declared on the label. Eventually the store manager contacted Fairway Corporate office and they have contacted our company and advised about the mislabeling of the product. Fairway has posted notices of the recall at its stores and has pulled the affected products of the shelves. Subsequent investigation indicates that the problem was caused due to mislabeling during the printing of the labels for the product.
The company has not received any reports of allergic reactions or illnesses associated with this product to date.
Customers who have purchased the affected product should dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase where they will receive a full refund. Consumers with questions or willing to organize a return may contact Sole Grano LLC at (201)797-7100 Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST.
