Allergen Alert: Stuffed Clams with Milk, Wheat, Eggs

Price Chopper Supermarkets is recalling stuffed clams from its seafood departments because three ingredients – milk, wheat and eggs – are allergens and are not listed on the label.

The recall is for Gourmet Stuffed Clams with a scale code of 209181, sold chain-wide in Price Chopper seafood departments between Sept. 30 and Dec. 30, 2011. 

According to the company’s news release, the store-generated label was updated on December 30 to correctly reflect all of the ingredients contained in the product. The news release did not explain whether the recalled clams would still be available in stores. 

Price Chopper said it initiated its Smart Reply notification program, which uses purchase data and consumer phone numbers on file, in connection with the company’s AdvantEdge (loyalty) card, to alert those households that may have purchased the stuffed clams.

The company said the product can be returned to local Price Choppers for a full refund. For more information, visit the pricechopper.com website or call Price Chopper at 1-800-666-7667, option 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
