CDPH Warns Consumers Not to Eat Pappy’s Chipotle Sauce Marinade
SACRAMENTO – Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and state health officer, today warned consumers not to eat Pappy’s Chipotle Sauce Marinade with “Best Before” dates between Feb. 2013 and Feb. 2014 because the product contains undeclared allergens.
Pappy’s Fine Foods of Fresno, California, is voluntarily recalling the Pappy’s Chipotle Sauce Marinade because the product label failed to declare food allergens (wheat and fish) in the ingredient statements. The recall was initiated after a routine inspection by CDPH identified the labeling deficiency. No illnesses have been reported at this time.
Pappy’s Chipotle Marinade Sauce is packaged in a 14-fluid-ounce glass bottle with a white label. It has a UPC (Universal Product Code) of 009502001119. Only products with a Best Before date between Feb. 2013 and Feb. 2014 are subject to this recall. The Best Before date is printed on the cap.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat or fish run the risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction that requires immediate medical attention should they consume these products. Consumers who have experienced allergic reaction after consuming this product should contact their health care provider.
Consumers that observe the products being offered for sale are encouraged to report their findings to the CDPH toll free complaint line at (800) 495-3232. Learn more at www.cdph.ca.gov
