ConAgra Recalls Unsalted Stick Margarine

Downers Grove, Ill  (SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that ConAgra Dairy Foods is recalling less than 3,000 pounds of Fleischmann's Unsalted Stick Margarine because the product may contain an undeclared dairy ingredient. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to dairy products may run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

This is the first public notice of this Class I recall issued by the FDA.

Affected product was distributed through retail stores in the following states:

Maryland Mississippi Vermont Michigan
Virginia Pennsylvania Maine
Alabama Massachusetts New Hampshire
Ohio Kentucky New Jersey
Connecticut Tennessee Rhode Island
New York Georgia West Virginia

This Fleischmann's Unsalted Stick Margarine can be identified with the "best if used by" date on the carton of JAN 31 02 O N. Two allergic reactions have been reported. Other than to dairy sensitive consumers or to consumers on a sodium free diet, the product being recalled is safe for consumption.

The product may actually be Fleischmann's Original Stick Margarine that contains whey, a dairy protein. The product can be easily identified by the inner wrap on the individual sticks that reads, "Fleischmann's Original Margarine," instead of Unsalted.

This product is being recalled in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). ConAgra Dairy Foods is concerned about the health of its consumers; therefore, we encourage those individuals who are allergic to dairy products to return the above-coded unsalted stick margarine to the store where purchased for a full refund. For further information, call toll-free at 1-800-257-5594 during normal business hours.
