Los Angeles, California, 2016-Nov-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — ISB Food Group, LLC of Los Angeles, California is recalling Nancy’s Fancy Butterscotch Budino Gelato and Nancy’s Fancy Peanut Butter with Crunchy Peanuts Gelato with expiration dates of March 18, 2017, because they were produced in a co-packing facility that has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Nancy’s Fancy Butterscotch Budino Gelato and Nancy’s Fancy Peanut Butter with Crunchy Peanuts Gelato with expiration dates of March 18, 2017,were distributed from March to October 2016 in California, Oregon and Texas.

The product is in plastic pint-sized containers with the Nancy’s Fancy brand name, Butterscotch Budino flavor and Peanut Butter with Crunchy Peanuts flavor, specifically stamped on the bottom with the expiration date of March 18, 2017.

No illnesses have been reported to date, and no Nancy’s Fancy product has been found to be contaminated.

The recall is the result of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finding samples positive for Listeria monocytogenes in the facility of the contract manufacturer, Dr. Bob’s of Upland, LLC, and in finished product of an unrelated company’s brand that was manufactured at the Dr. Bob’s facility, leading the contract manufacturer to recall all ice cream products produced this year at its facility.   The continuous production line at Dr. Bob’s that tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes was used to produce Nancy’s Fancy Butterscotch Budino and Peanut Butter with Crunchy Peanuts flavors in March of 2016.  ISB Food Group has only used the Dr. Bob’s facility for co-packing once in 2016, in March, and will not produce in the Dr. Bob’s facility going forward.

Consumers who have purchased Nancy’s Fancy Butterscotch Budino flavor or Nancy’s Fancy Peanut Butter with Crunchy Peanuts flavor with expiration dates of March 18, 2017 are urged to contact us for a full refund or any questions at (818) 405-0022, extension 103, Monday through Friday, 7:00 am Pacific Time to 3:00 pm Pacific Time.

WASHINGTON, 2016-Aug-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — WFSP Foods LLC, a Decatur, Ala. establishment, is recalling approximately 18,672 pounds of pork and chicken sausage products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today (Aug 26, 2016). The products contain milk, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.

The ready-to-eat sausage items were produced on June 7, 2016. The following product is subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF Only)]

Creative Snacks Co. of Greensboro, NC expands recall on sunflower seed products due to the potential presence of Listeria monocytogenes

Silver Spring, MD, 2016-Jun-13 — /EPR Retail News/ — Creative Snacks Co. of Greensboro, North Carolina is expanding their recall of specific lot codes of bulk and packaged sunflower seed products due to the potential presence of Listeria monocytogenes. We have been notified by SunOpta, our sunflower seed supplier, that the company has issued a further expanded voluntary recall for sunflower seeds that were processed in their Crookston, Minnesota facility between May 31, 2015 and January 31, 2016. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. It is worth noting that no illnesses have been reported to date and that the recall is a precautionary measure.

Creative Snacks is recalling all products that contain the SunOpta sunflower seeds in question. The product being recalled has been distributed to retailers nationwide and is being sold in a variety of formats including plastic rigid containers, small re-sealable bags and in bulk.

There have been no illnesses reported to date in connection with this recall. Consumers who have purchased affected Creative Snacks Co. products with the Best Before dates listed above should not consume the product and should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Best before dates can be found on bottom lower right corner of rigid containers and the back lower right corner of re-sealable snack bags. Consumers with questions may contact the company Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm EST at 336.668.4151, Lindsay Hancock, Creative Snacks Co.

Nature’s One voluntarily recalls certain PediaSmart® Dairy Vanilla complete nutrition beverage powder due to incorrect scoop size

Silver Spring, MD, 2016-Jun-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — Nature’s One of Lewis Center, OH is voluntarily recalling three lots of PediaSmart®Dairy Vanilla complete nutrition beverage powder packaged in 12.7 ounce cans, which bear the lot numbers located on the bottom of the can.  This product is generally consumed by individuals between the ages of 13 months – 13 years old. The result of measuring product with the smaller scoop is that only 60% of the labeled nutritional content will be consumed per serving.  Unless this product is used as a sole source of nutrition, there should be no health risk from using the incorrect scoop. This action is being taken out of an abundance of caution. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this incorrect scoop size.

Product was distributed between January 26, 2016 to June 1, 2016 and shipped to: AL, AZ, AR, CA, CO, CT, DE, FL, GA, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MT, NE, NV, NH, NJ, NM, NY, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VT, VA, WA, WV, WI AND WY and the District of Columbia.
Product was also shipped to Canada.

Complaints have been received that some cans in these lots contain a 20 cc scoop to measure the product for reconstitution and feeding, rather than the 32 cc scoop that should be in the can. The packager of the product has confirmed that a mix-up in their facility resulted in some cans being packaged with the smaller scoops.

Because not all of the cans contain the smaller scoop, if you have any of the product potentially containing the smaller scoop, please look at the bottom of the scoop. If the scoop has the number 32 cc printed on it, the scoop size is correct and you can continue to use the product knowing that the correct levels of nutrients will be delivered when following label mixing directions using the scoop. However, if your scoop has a 20 cc printed on the bottom, then you should not use that scoop for measuring. Consumers may contact Nature’s One at (888) 227-7122 Monday – Friday 9:00 am – 4:00 pm EST for a replacement or emailrecallinfo@naturesone.zendesk.com anytime.

PLANO, Texas, 2016-Jun-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — Frito-Lay today announced a voluntary recall of select Rold Gold Tiny Twists, Rold Gold Thins, Rold Gold Sticks and Rold Gold Honey Wheat Braided due to a potential undeclared peanut allergen.

This recall is the direct result of a recent recall by a Frito-Lay supplier of certain lots of flour for undeclared peanut residue. The Rold Gold products subject to the recall may have been produced using the recalled flour and, as a result, these Rold Gold products may contain low levels of undeclared peanut residue. More information about the flour recall can be found on the FDA’s website at:http://www.fda.gov/Food/RecallsOutbreaksEmergencies/SafetyAlertsAdvisories/ucm504002.htm.

The affected Rold Gold packages are sold in retail stores and via foodservice and vending customers throughout the United States, and have “guaranteed fresh” dates ranging from June 28, 2016 – August 23, 2016 on the front of the package. Directly underneath the “guaranteed fresh” date is a 9-digit manufacturing code that includes the numbers “32” in the second and third position (example: x32xxxxxx).

The following products with the above-described “guaranteed fresh” dates and manufacturing codes are impacted:

  • Rold Gold Tiny Twists – 1 oz. , 2 oz., 16 oz. and 20½ oz.
  • Rold Gold Thins – 4 oz. and 16 oz.
  • Rold Gold Sticks – 16 oz.
  • Rold Gold Honey Wheat Braided – 10 oz.

It is important to note that products that do not include 32 in the second and third positions of the manufacturing code are not impacted.

The Rold Gold Tiny Twists are also included in select multipack offerings. The impacted multipacks have “use by” dates on the front of the package. Directly next to or underneath the “use by” date is a 11-digit manufacturing code that will include the letter combination AM, TO, QH, QC or SW in the second and third position (example: xAMxxxxxxxx). The impacted products have different, varying “use by” dates, including:

  • 20 count Baked & Popped Mix — “use by” dates ranging from May 31 – July 26, 2016
  • 20 count SunChips & Rold Gold Mix — “use by” dates ranging from June 14 – August 9, 2016
  • 32 count Fun Times Mix — “use by” dates ranging from June 14 – August 9, 2016
  • 30 count Baked & Popped Variety Pack — “use by” dates ranging from June 14 – August 9, 2016

To date, Frito-Lay has received no reports of illness related to the products covered by this recall. No other Rold Gold products or flavors are impacted. Frito-Lay has informed the FDA of our actions.

Consumers with any product noted above can return the product to retailer for a full refund, or contact Frito-Lay Consumer Relations (9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. CST, Mon.-Fri.) at 1-888-256-3090 or www.pretzelrecall.com.

The Body Shot Bar voluntarily recalls Step 2 60 gold capsule due to undeclared Sibutramine

Silver Spring, MD, 2016-Jun-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Body Shot Bar is voluntarily recalling all lots distributed March 1- May 6 2016 of Step 2 60 gold capsule (350MG per) capsules to the consumer level. Step 2 has been found positive for Sibutramine after FDA sampling and testing.

Sibutramine is an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the U.S. market in October 2010. Sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or stroke. Phenolphthalein is an ingredient previously used in over-the-counter laxatives, but because of concerns of carcinogenicity, it is not currently approved for marketing in the United States. Health risks associated with phenolphthalein could include potentially serious gastrointestinal disturbances, irregular heartbeat, and cancer with long-term use. These undeclared ingredients make these products unapproved new drugs for which safety and efficacy have not been established.
