All lot codes of Sam Mills Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Granola Bars distributed between December 18, 2014 and July 23, 2015 are being recalled over risk of allergic reaction due to an undeclared food product, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported on Tuesday, August 25.
About 11,083 cases in 4.4 ounce boxes are covered by the recall. According to the report, the packaging declares that the products do not contain dairy, although they may actually contain traces of the ingredient. Individuals allergic to dairy may develop adverse health reactions, such as wheezing, hives, gastrointestinal irritation, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps. In severe cases, undeclared food allergen such as this may result in fatal complications, such as anaphylaxis.
If a mislabeled food product has caused you to suffer from the damages brought about by an allergic reaction, do not delay in taking legal action. We at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® might be able to fight on your behalf for the justice you are seeking from the food manufacturer involved.
