Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary W. Black alerts consumers to a recall of McCormick & Company Golden Dipt® Tempura Seafood Batter Mix because the product has the potential to contain milk.
People who have an allergy to milk run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.
The recalled item was sold in eight-ounce cartons with UPC code 4123470132 and a “Best Buy” date of Oct. 8, 2012. The date code can be found printed in white ink on the bottom of the carton. The product was sold in grocery stores in GA, FL, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, NC, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, TN, WI and the Cayman Islands beginning on Oct. 21, 2010.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that Cajun Style Fish Fry mix, which contains a milk ingredient, had been packaged in a limited number of Golden Dipt® Tempura Seafood Batter Mix cartons. To date, no illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported in association with this recall.
Grocery outlets that sell the product have been notified to remove it from store shelves immediately. Consumers should contact McCormick’s Consumer Affairs team at (800) 632-5847, Monday-Friday, 9:30 a.m.-9 p.m. EST, Saturday-Sunday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. EST for replacement, refund or instructions on what to do with the product.
Note: The Georgia Department of Agriculture released the press release - “McCormick & Company recalls dip, gravy mixes due to possible Salmonella contamination” - on March 9, 2011. The original date of that recall was March 5, 2010. We regret the error.
