Allergen Alert: Bridge Mix in Chocolate Raisin Packaging

Walgreen Co. is recalling certain lots of packages with chocolate-covered raisin labels  because they may instead contain bridge mix, which includes peanuts, almonds and soy, allergens not listed as ingredients.


After receiving a consumer complaint of an allergic reaction, Walgreen said it learned that the product manufacturer, GKI Foods of Brighton, MI, had mistakenly packaged bridge mix with chocolate-covered raisin labeling.

The recalled 13 oz. blue and white plastic bags have chocolate-covered raisins pictured on the front and the following identifying information on the back label: best-by date of Oct 42012A1, UPC number 04902245661, and item number 280217.

The recalled packages were distributed through Walgreen distribution centers in Arizona, Connecticut and California and to Walgreens retail stores in the Northeastern and Western United States.

 Customers may return the recalled packages to Walgreens for a full refund.

For more information, contact Walgreens Product Quality Department at 847-315-2755, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Time.
