Sweet Earth Natural Foods is voluntarily recalling its Big Sur Burrito, 7 oz, due to a packaging error. As a result, a small number of these products contain an undeclared milk allergen. The precautionary recall was necessitated when it was discovered that a small quantity of Santa Cruz Burritos were packaged into Big Sur Burrito pouches. The Santa Cruz Burrito contains milk in the form of cheese, which is not listed as an allergen on the Big Sur Burrito pouch, therefore posing a potential risk to people who have an allergy to milk.

In some individuals the consumption of milk could present a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.

These retail products were distributed nationwide from our manufacturing facility between the dates of March 30, 2016 and May 6, 2016.
