Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following kashrus and dairy and pecan allergy alert is from the OU and the FDA posted on October 17, 2012 and October 20, 2012.

OU alert: Wegmans Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix is certified by the Orthodox Union as an OU-D dairy product. Some products were labeled with an OU mark, without the D - Dairy designation. This product was withdrawn from the marketplace. Consumers who purchased this product prior to the withdrawal should consider it a dairy product.

FDA Alert: The Raymond-Hadley Corp. of Spencer, NY is expanding the recall of Wegmans Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix 17.2OZ, UPC 077890283363, to include possible contamination of undeclared allergen Pecans (Tree Nuts). This product already had been recalled because they may be contaminated with the undeclared allergen Milk. People who have an allergy to milk or pecans run the risk of serious, or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Wegmans 17.2oz Double Chocolate Brownie mixes were distributed in the United States through the Wegmans retail stores.
The mixes are packaged under the Wegmans brand in chipboard boxes with the following markings on the packages: ENJOY BY OCT 30 2014 through MAR 17 2014.
The voluntary recall was initiated after it was discovered that chocolate chunks used in the mix were received in packaging that did not reveal the presence of the allergen milk and pecans. Subsequent investigation confirms milk and pecans as a possible cross-contaminate in the chocolate chunks used in the brownie mixes.
Consumers who have purchased the product listed above are urged to return it to Wegmans for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the manufacturer at 1-800-252-2220, Monday – Friday 8:00am – 4:30pm EDT.
