Wegmans Gluten Free Brownie Mixes Recalled Over Undeclared Pecans, Milk

Wegmans Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mixes have been recalled because they may contain pecans and milk, though the packages contain no allergen warning.

Two people have reportedly suffered allergic reactions after consuming the brownies, potentially because of the unlisted ingredients. The original recall, issued on October 18th, only noted the presence of undeclared milk in the brownie mix. Now, the recall has expanded to include pecans, which could cause an allergic reaction in people who are allergic to tree nuts.

The Raymond-Hadley Corp of New York, which produces the brownie mixes for Wegmans, has recalled varieties sold under the Wegmans brand in 17.2 ounce boxes. The UPC number is 077890283363, and the affected packages have best-by dates of March 17, 2014 through October 30, 2014. They were sold in Wegmans retail stores throughout the U.S.

If you have any questions about the recall, you are advised to call the manufacturer, at 1-800-242-2220. Phone lines will be open Monday through Friday, between 8:00am and 4:30pm ET.
