Pancake mix sold at Walmart, Kroger stores recalled over contamination concerns – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
Pancake and waffle mixes sold at Walmart and Kroger stores are being recalled due to potential foreign object contamination, according to a pair of recall notices posted on the Food and Drug Administration’s website during the weekend.
Continental Mills issued a recall on Friday for two batches of its Kroger buttermilk pancake and waffle mix after “fragments of a cable used to clean the processing line were discovered in a limited amount of product.”
The recalled blend comes in a 2-pound package with lot codes KX2063 and KX2064 and expiration dates of September 1, 2023 and September 2, 2023.
The mix was distributed to Kroger stores in 17 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
A day later, Continental Mills issued another recall for buttermilk pancake and waffle mix sold under Walmart’s Great Value brand. The second recall concerns a batch of the mixture with an expiry date of September 1, 2023. The batch code is KX2063.
Great Value Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix was distributed at Walmart stores nationwide.
The Washington state-based company said no injuries related to the recalled products have been reported and consumers have not reported finding their products contaminated.
The company urges consumers to discard or return the product to where it was purchased for a replacement or refund. For more information about the recall, contact Continental Mills at 1-800-578-7832, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. PT to 4 p.m. PT.
