August 9, 2001Gardenburger Recalls Mislabeled
Chikn Grill Product
OR (SafetyAlerts) - Gardenburger is
voluntarily recalling its Gardenburger® Chikn Grill fillets after learning
that the product is mislabeled. The company was very recently informed by a supplier that
sulfites are present in one of the products ingredients. Because Chikn Grill
packages do not list sulfites among the ingredients, products now on shelf are being
recalled for re-labeling.
Sulfite-sensitive individuals who consume sulfites may have allergic reactions, some
potentially life threatening. The product is safe for other consumers.
None of Gardenburgers other products are affected by this recall.
Available in retail freezer cases nationwide, Chikn Grill comes in an orange, red
and black, 10-oz. package (UPC #84059-00064) containing four 2.5oz servings. The recall
covers all production codes of the Chikn Grill product. Consumers are urged to
return the product to the store where it was purchased for a refund.
While sulfites naturally occur in foods and are widely used in processed food products
such as dried fruit, Gardenburger considers them outside its commitment to all-natural
ingredients. The company aims to substitute the suppliers ingredient with one not
containing sulfites. In the interim, Gardenburger will quickly replace the recalled
product with one that is properly labeled.
This voluntary recall is being conducted in cooperation with the Food and Drug
Consumers with questions can find answers at www.gardenburger.com or by calling Gardenburger at 1-800-459-7079.
