Announcement

St Louis-based Dierbergs Markets is recalling two Deli Products with multiple use by dates in all 25 retail stores due to the presence of undeclared fish (bonito, cod), undeclared lobster, crab, and shrimp in scampi butter and undeclared soy and wheat in cabernet grille butter. People who have allergies to fish, lobster, crab, shrimp, soy, or wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

All of the packages have been removed from store shelves. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem. Product was distributed to all Dierbergs Markets retail locations in eastern and central Missouri and western Illinois.

All 'Sell By' dates of the following products are included in this recall:

# Retail Products Reason for recall SELL-BY-DATE
Scampi Butter 3oz Undeclared Fish (bonito, cod), Undeclared lobster, crab, and shrimp 8/16/17, 9/6/17, and 10/9/17
Cabernet Grille Butter 3oz Undeclared Soy and Wheat 8/19/17, 9/10/17, and 11/3/17
 

The recall was initiated after it was discovered by Dierbergs personnel during an internal audit the fish, lobster, crab, and shrimp containing (Scampi Butter) and Soy and Wheat containing (Cabernet Grille Butter) product was distributed in packages that did not reveal the presence of the allergens. Subsequent investigation indicated the omissions were the result of ingredient changes in the products. Production of the named products is suspended until FDA and Dierbergs are certain the labeling has been corrected. No other Dierbergs Markets branded products are affected by this recall.

Dierbergs Markets is asking consumers who have packages of the product to return them unopened to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Dierbergs Markets at 1636-532-8884 Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4:30 pm CDT.
