Company Announcement

Smilin’ Bob’s is initiating a voluntary recall because a limited amount of Smilin’ Bob’s Original Smoked Fish Dip was mistakenly packed in Smilin’ Bob’s Natural Smoked Fish Dip cups with a Original Smoked Fish Dip lid.  We discovered the issue when one of our retail customers brought to our attention that cups had a UPC code that did not match that for the “original” fish dip.  As a result, the packaging does not list the presence of a possible egg allergen. Some people who have an extreme allergy or severe sensitivity to egg could run the risk of a serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

Smilin’ Bob’s is working with distributors and retailers to quarantine and recover any impacted product remaining on store shelves.  A total of 461 cases were distributed to retailers in the states of FL, GA, AL, SC, TN, NC, and VA.

HOW TO IDENTIFY THE RECALLED PRODUCT:

The containers have the “Best If Use By” dates stated below printed on the side of each container and the lot number stated for each product on the side or the lid (see attached pictures). This recall applies only to the products with the “Best If Use By” dates stated below.
