Consumers Advised to Avoid Carancis Bread Products

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) is advising the public to not consume any products manufactured by Dupras Baking Co. of Woonsocket, Rhode Island. Dupras makes rolls and bread products and sells them under the brand name Carancis.

This advisory is being issued due to potential contamination of foods produced at Dupras' location. The problem was discovered on September 12, 2019 while RIDOH staff were performing an inspection. Evidence of rodents and insanitary conditions was observed. Consumers are asked to check their homes and dispose of any Carancis products made by Dupras.

There have been no confirmed reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
