Lisle, IL - McCain Foods USA, Inc. today announced it is voluntarily recalling retail, frozen onion ring products due to the use of incorrect packaging that does not declare milk as one of the ingredients.

No other products are impacted by this recall.

The products being recalled have been manufactured after October 20th, 2015 and prior to September 23, 2016. The production date code will begin with the letter “V” on the bag. Production date is documented on the bag via the following format: VYYMMDD. V=Production Plant Impacted By Recall. YY = Year. MM = Month.
