Zatarain initiated a voluntary recall of the 8 oz boxes of their Red Beans and Rice Original products, according to a December 17 notice by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website, stating that the product may possibly contain dairy ingredients that were not identified on the package label.
No illnesses have been reported as of yet, but consumers with severe sensitivity and allergies to dairy could potentially acquire serious and life-threatening reactions if the product is consumed.
The recalled products have a UPC number of 7142909849 and a “Best By” date of July 31, 2016. They were shipped to several states, including Wisconsin, between August 7, 2015 and September 29, 2015.
Consumers are urged to dispose of the recalled products, and they may also contact Zatarain’s Consumer Affairs team for a replacement product or a full refund.
