B&G Foods Issues Voluntary Allergy Alert on Undeclared Milk in a Limited Number of Boxes of Back to Nature® Organic Rosemary & Olive Oil Stoneground Wheat Crackers

August 26, 2020 from the FDA:

B&G Foods announced today it is voluntarily recalling 1,502 cases of a single date code of 6 oz. Back to Nature Organic Rosemary & Olive Oil Stoneground Wheat Crackers, with a “best by” date of APR 07 2021, after learning that the product may contain undeclared milk ingredients.

This recall affects only 1,502 cases of the following product, which were distributed in retail stores nationwide:

Consumer UPC # Size Best By Date
Back to Nature Organic Rosemary & Olive Oil Stoneground Wheat Crackers 8-19898-01015-8 6 oz. APR 07 2021
(The “best by" date is located on the top of the box.)

This recall does not apply to any other “best by” dates, sizes or varieties of Back to Nature products.

B&G Foods discovered this issue when it received a consumer complaint that the foil bag within a single box of Back to Nature Organic Rosemary & Olive Oil Stoneground Wheat Crackers contained cheese crackers. B&G Foods initiated the recall based on the results of its investigation after locating a second box in its warehouse with the same “best by” date that was inadvertently filled with a foil bag of cheese crackers, potentially exposing consumers to undeclared milk. The foil bags do correctly indicate whether the crackers are rosemary & olive oil crackers or cheese crackers and the outer box provides an allergen advisory statement indicating that the product is “Made on the same equipment that processes milk.” However, out of an abundance of caution, B&G Foods is recalling all 1,502 cases with this particular “best by” date that have been shipped to its customers. Product with this particular “best by” date was shipped and distributed by B&G Foods to its customers' warehouses located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Washington and Wisconsin.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled products can return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers seeking a refund or additional information may also contact B&G Foods by calling 855.346.2225 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Eastern time or submitting a contact at https://backtonaturefoods.com/contact-us

Riviana Foods Inc. Voluntarily Recalls Certain Manufacturing Date and Upc Number of Ronzoni® Smart Taste® Extra-Wide Noodles Due to Possible Undeclared Egg Allergen

August 26, 2020 from the FDA:

Riviana Foods Inc. is voluntarily recalling 19,931 cases of certain coded Ronzoni Smart Taste Extra-Wide Noodle cellophane packages that contain an egg noodle product. The affected Ronzoni Smart Taste Extra-Wide Noodle packages do not declare the allergen “egg”, which is an ingredient in the noodle product. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to egg run the risk of serious allergic reaction if they consume this product. The affected product was distributed nationally from March through August of this year.

The product at issue can be identified by the manufacturing code and UPC number listed on the package as listed in the chart below.

Product Size Product Name Manufacturing Codes Individual Package UPC
12 oz. each RONZONI® Smart Taste® Extra-Wide Noodles MAR3022H, MAR3122H, JUN0422H, JUN0522H, JUL2422H, JUL2522H 71300 05008

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing egg was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in Riviana’s packaging review processes.

Riviana has instructed distributors and retailers who purchased affected product from Riviana to segregate the recalled products from their inventories so that a Riviana sales representative may assist retailers in the disposition of the product.

Consumers should return the affected product to the store where they purchased it for a full refund. Consumers who may have questions or concerns should call Riviana’s toll free Consumer Relations number at 1-800-730-5957, Monday through Friday, between 9 am and 5 pm (Eastern).
