The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced a recall of potato dumplings on Feb. 14. JS Pelmini OK, Inc. announced a food allergy alert concerning undeclared milk and soy to two varieties of potato dumplings.
The Brooklyn, N.Y. - based company recalled one pound plastic bags of Potato Dumplings and Potato & Mushroom Dumplings; they were adhered with blue and brown or blue and black paper labels.
During a dual inspection – initiated by the NY State Department of Agriculture and the FDA – the finished labels failed to identify milk and soy as a known food allergen to the consumer public.
The regular potato dumplings will bear the UPC Code 6 54368 10038 6 and the potato and mushroom dumpling variety will bear the UPC Code 6 54368 10039 3.
The affected potato dumplings were distributed on or before Feb. 13 to retailers in N.Y., Mass., Pa., N.J. and Ill.
The agencies that conducted the investigation into this recall cited the cause of the problem was narrowed to a “temporary breakdown in the company’s production and packaging processes.”
Consumers may return the affected dumplings where they were purchased for a full refund.
There have been no reported illnesses or complaints as a result of this recall to date.
