New Frontier Foods, Inc. Issues Voluntary Recall Of Ocean's Halo Seaweed Chips Produced At Third Party Manufacturer On Certain Dates, Because Of Possible Health Risk (Undeclared Allergen - Wheat)

For Immediate Release

October 12, 2015



Bob Childs


New Frontier Foods, Inc. of Burlingame, CA is voluntarily recalling six days of production of Ocean's Halo Gluten Free Seaweed Chips produced at a third party manufacturer because of an undeclared allergen – wheat – with potential adverse health effects.

The Seaweed Chips produced on the affected dates of production are being recalled because routine testing showed levels of gluten above the FDA limit for a gluten free product. As a result, the products may contain an undeclared allergen – wheat – in products labeled as gluten-free. To date, New Frontier Foods has not received any reports of illness that may be associated with gluten.

New Frontier Foods is voluntarily recalling affected chips produced on those dates from customer warehouses and retail store shelves. No other dates and no other New Frontier Foods products are covered by the recall.

Products containing wheat can cause illness or severe reactions for individuals with wheat allergies or Celiac disease. Products containing wheat can also cause illness or discomfort for individuals with gluten intolerance.

Consumers with wheat allergies, Celiac disease or gluten intolerance should not consume products bearing the affected code dates and should contact New Frontier Foods for a replacement or full refund. For consumers who do not have an allergy to wheat, Celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, the products are safe to eat.

This voluntary recall includes 3 flavors Ocean's Halo Seaweed Chips, with the following "BEST BY" dates shown as Lot Numbers below.
