The Raymond-Hadley Corp. of Spencer, NY is recalling Wegmans Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie mixes because they may be contaminated with the undeclared allergen Milk and Pecans. People who have an allergy to milk or pecans run the risk of serious, or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Wegmans 17.2oz Double Chocolate Brownie mixes were distributed in the United States through the Wegmans retail stores.
The mixes are packaged under the Wegmans brand in chipboard boxes with the following markings on the packages: ENJOY BY OCT 30 2014 through MAR 17 2014.
The voluntary recall was initiated after it was discovered that chocolate chunks used in the mix were received in packaging that did not reveal the presence of the allergen milk and pecans.
