Undeclared Egg Brings Bread Recall

The Lawrence, MA-based Glutino Food Group is recalling Glutino Raisin Bread because it may contain undeclared egg product as one of the ingredients.

Consumers who have an allergy or sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products

The U.S. product comes in a 22.6 ounce clear plastic bag marked with UPC code 6-78523 03015-8. Only one lot number of Glutino Raisin Bread (Best Before 08OCT10) in which egg is not declared on the label is affected by this alert.

The affected product was distributed only in the United States.

Glutino Raisin Bread is distributed nationwide in retail stores in the frozen food section.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the product’s UPC was not scanning correctly in retail locations. The product was placed in packaging intended for a different product that did not list egg as an ingredient.

Subsequent investigation indicates a temporary issue in the company’s packaging processes caused the problem. No other products have been affected.

Consumers who have purchased Glutino Raisin Bread are asked to return the product to the place of purchase to receive a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact Glutino directly at 1-800-54-FOODS, 9:00 – 5:00 ET, Monday through Friday.
