Mexican Breads Recalled For Allergens

Three Mexican bread products are being recalled by Oregon’s Dominguez Family Enterprises because they contain undeclared Whey (milk), Soy Flour, and Wheat.

The Hood River company said people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk, soy, and wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction to the breads.

The recalled products are “Juanita’s Brand” Cuernos, Pan Huevo and Ojos Mexican breads.

The breads are packaged 6-count in a clear plastic clamshell container with a white, red and green label. Cuernos is a croissant-like product; Pan Huevo has pink, white, yellow, & chocolate topping; and Ojos is red and rolled in coconut flakes.

If you have any of these products with the “best by” dates of 5/12/2010 though 6/05/2010, please return to the retail store and ask for a refund.

Products were distributed in five retail stores in Oregon, five retail stores in Washington, and one retail store in Anchorage, Alaska.

No illnesses or adverse reactions have been associated with the recalled products.  

The Oregon Department of Agricultures (ODA) discovered the error during an inspection on May 11, 2010. Products distributed in the future will have new labels that list the allergens.

For further information you may call Dominguez Family Enterprises at 541-386-6311 or 888-463-6332 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. (PDT), Monday to Friday or email to INFO@Juanitasfinefoods.com.
