Worthington Foods Recalls Corn Dogs

Battle Creek, MI (SafetyAlerts) - Worthington Foods, a subsidiary of the Kellogg Co. is recalling all its meatless corn dogs after tests confirmed some of the product may contain the genetic material (DNA) necessary for the production in corn (trade name: StarLink) of the pesticide Cry9C protein derived from Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies tolworthi. The pesticide is not allowed for use in foods for human consumption.

StarLink has not been approved for human consumption because of questions about its potential to cause human reactions. Government officials say there is little, if any, health risk for the corn.

The recall includes all corn dogs sold under the names Morningstar Farms, Loma Linda, and Natural Touch. Consumers may call the company toll-free at 1-877-924-4247.
