J.R. Simplot Has Recalled Schwan's Stirfry Vegetables

Boise, ID (SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that J.R. Simplot Company has recalled 32-ounce packages of Schwan's Stirfry Vegetables because it may contain undeclared non-fat dry milk. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The Stirfry Vegetables were distributed nationwide through direct delivery. The product comes in a 32-ounce, printed plastic package with the Schwan's Stirfry Vegetable label, with the code of X717218:00 through X717218:59 on the back panel of the package.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that a limited number of cases of product containing non-fat milk were distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of non-fat milk. Subsequent investigation indicated the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the Company's packaging processes.

Sale of the product has been suspended until the Company is certain that the affected product has been removed from distribution. Consumers who have purchased the 32-ounce packages of Schwan's Stirfry Vegetables with the above codes are urged to return them to Schwan's for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact J.R. Simplot Company at 1-800-575-8909.
