Market Basket Has Recalled Oats & More® with Honey Cereal

Tewksbury, MA (SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said Demoulas Super Markets, Inc. has recalled 396 cases (4,752 cartons) of Market Basket Brand Oats & More® with Honey cereal bearing the ?Best If Used By? Date Code of ?APR1103J2? (found on the box top) because the product may contain undeclared almonds. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to almonds run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergenic reaction if they consume this product.

Market Basket Oats & More® with Honey cereal was distributed through Market Basket Stores in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. The product is packaged in cartons containing 16 oz. of product.

No illnesses have been reported to date, and no other products are affected by this recall.

The recall was initiated after a question was raised with Market Basket personnel about the possible presence of almond slices in the product although they were not listed as an ingredient. Subsequent investigation indicated that the problem was due to a procedural error related to the packaging process of the manufacturer of the cereal which has since been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased Market Basket Oats & More® with Honey bearing the APR1103J2 best if used by code are urged to return it a Market Basket store for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Market Basket at 978-851-8000
