Northern Tier Bakery LLC Issues Voluntary Recall Due to Allergy Alert on Undeclared Milk in Tuna Salad Wedge Sandwich

TEMPE, Ariz., March 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northern Tier Bakery LLC (NYSE:NTI) is voluntarily recalling 4.5 oz. Tuna Salad Sandwiches sold under the brand names SuperMom’s Kitchen (763913801248), Take Away Café (763913107029), and Express Café (763913801248) due to mislabeling caused by a third party supplier. The product contains milk, an allergen, which is undeclared on the packaging label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The Tuna Salad Sandwiches were available for sale on March 8, 2016, at retail convenience stores in Minnesota and Wisconsin. The product is packaged in a black wedge container and marked with “Enjoy Through: 3/11”.

The recall was immediately initiated upon discovering that a third party supplier failed to notify the company of a change in the product. One shipment of product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk on the label. This labeling issue was immediately corrected.

No illnesses have been reported to date. No other products are affected by this issue.

This voluntary recall has been issued by Northern Tier Bakery LLC in an abundance of caution, to ensure the safety of customers. Northern Tier Bakery LLC takes every precaution necessary to ensure the integrity and quality of its products. Customers affected by this voluntary recall may return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Please call 1-855-468-6972 with any questions.
