The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) advises consumers that Flowers Foods Inc. is voluntarily recalling certain packages of Cobblestone Bread Co. Wheat English Muffins because they contain undeclared milk.
The affected packages have the UPC # 0 72250 01316 1 and have best by dates of October 28, 2015 through April 10, 2016. People who have allergies to dairy products run the risk of serious reactions if they consume these products. No illnesses have been reported to date.
The recalled product was distributed to retail stores in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington DC, and West Virginia.
Approximately 10,000 packages of English muffins are involved in the recall. The voluntary recall was initiated after Flowers discovered that product containing milk was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk.
Consumers who have purchased Cobblestone Bread Co. Wheat English Muffins with the UPC and dates noted above are urged to return to them to the place of purchase for product replacement or refund. No other Cobblestone Bread Co. brand products are included in this recall. Consumers with questions may call Flowers' Consumer Relations Center at 1-866-245-8921.
