Recall on Porchlight Products Multi-Grain Pancakes
The label for Porchlight Multi-Grain Pancake Mix,
which indicated “Multi-Grain Flour” as an ingredient, was insufficient to
disclose a known allergen, wheat. Porchlight is undertaking a voluntary recall on
the product. However, the product only impacts those consumers that have a wheat
allergy. There have been no complaints or indications of illness.
All of the packages in stores and restaurants as of August 3 have sufficient labels by adding a separate sticker stating “Contains Whole Wheat Flour”. Therefore, the recall only is for pancake mix sold before August 3. Ongoing, a new label has already been developed listing all ingredients for Multi-Grain Pancake Mix will be used for future distribution.
If anyone has an allergy to wheat they should not consume the product. Porchlight will reimburse persons purchasing the pancake mix before August 3 if they provide the product. They can return to Porchlight or to the store where they purchased the product. However, the product is safe for consumption by anyone who does not have an allergy to the listed ingredients.
To learn more, please read the Press Release on Multi-Grain Pancakes.
If there are any questions about this recall, please
contact Steve Schooler at firstname.lastname@example.org or 257-2534 ext. 18
