UPDATED: Allergy Alert – Undeclared Milk in Five Kinnikinnick Foods Products

Edmonton, Alberta–(ENEWSPF)–January 23, 2014 – Kinnikinnick Foods of 10940 120 Street, Edmonton, AB is expanding previous recalls of January 10 & 15th.

Kinnikinnick has determined that an ingredient used in the production of these products contained MILK allergens that were not listed by the manufacturer of that ingredient and may be present in these finished products. MILK is not declared on the packaging of these 5 Kinnikinnick products. Routine testing by Kinnikinnick discovered this MILK contamination in a specific lot of an ingredient which was certified by the manufacturer to contain no MILK allergens. The distributor of this ingredient in Canada, Burnbrae Farms, has currently recalled 4 lots of this ingredient and several additional lots are under investigation.

We are voluntarily recalling all lots produced up to and including the Best Before dates indicated below which contained the ingredient.

Lots produced after the listed Best Before dates do not use this ingredient and are not a part of this recall.
