due the possibility of the presence of soft nylon fragments of mesh resembling white hair, caused by a faulty screen at our production facility. Foodborne foreign objects, in some instances may cause injuries such as choking. The severity and type of injury a consumer might experience depends on the size and shape of the foreign object.

The problem was detected internally by our quality department during a routine production line check.

There have been no consumer complaints, illnesses or injuries reported to date associated with this incident. While no nylon “hairs” have been found in finished product at all, we are taking this voluntary action in an overabundance of caution.

The potentially affected products are distributed through retail HEB supermarkets which are located in the Southwestern region of the USA.

The potentially affected product consists of retail packages weighing 5 Lbs.

The code date information can be found on the top folded seal of the package.

The Morrison Milling Company is committed to providing high-quality products, and the safety and satisfaction of our consumers is the company’s utmost priority.

Consumers who have purchased the product with the above “Best By” dates before September 8, 2016 can return it to its place of purchase for a full refund.
