The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on Jan. 4, a recall of chocolate chunk brownie mix due to undeclared walnuts. Gilster-Mary Lee Corp. said the wrong packaging was used for the food during production. The Chester, Ill. based food manufacturer voluntarily recalled one lot of the walnut brownies upon discovering the cartons were meant for plain chocolate chunk brownies.
The Food Club brand chocolate chunk brownie mixes were packaged in 21.5-ounce cartons with the UPC 36800-13486 and Best-By-Date of Nov. 28.
The lot of affected recalled dessert mixes were distributed to a warehouse located at Abingdon, Va.
People who are food sensitive or allergic to nuts should not consume the affected brownies because walnuts were not listed as a food ingredient nor declared as a food allergen on the carton labels.
Consumers who have purchased the affected product can return them back to the store or dispose of the food.
There have been no reported illnesses or complaints to date.
Consumers with any further questions can contact Gilster-Mary Lee Corp. at 618-826-2361 using ext. 3283 or 3035.
