Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following soy allergy alert is from the FDA on January 8, 2013.

Woodstock® today issued a voluntary recall of Woodstock Tamari Almonds, because of an incorrect back label on packages of a single Lot. This mislabeling incident resulted in an undeclared allergen (Soy). People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of a serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. The front of the retail package is correctly labeled Woodstock All Natural Tamari Almonds, 7.5 OZ. However, the back of the retail package has incorrect back label information – including Nutrition Facts, Ingredients, UPC# 0-42563—00838-3. One code date is affected: Best By: 10/24/13, Lot 12298, which appears on the shipping case sticker and on the back of the retail pouch (ONLY this Best By date is being recalled).
The product was distributed to retailers in the following states (Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin, and District of Columbia).
The recall was initiated when it was discovered that packages were mislabeled by the packer. Although soy ingredient is contained in the product, the incorrect back label does not list soy in the ingredients statement. No other lot numbers of Woodstock Tamari Almonds are affected. In addition, the package bears the allergen advisory statement "Manufactured on shared equipment in a plant that processes peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat (gluten), and milk products."
Consumers can return the product to their place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions can contact the company at 888-534-0246 x25154, Monday – Friday, 8am to 5pm Eastern Time.
