A producer is recalling pancake and waffle mix sold under Kroger’s brand name and Walmart’s Great Value brand name because fragments from a piece of equipment were discovered in the products.
Continental Mills posted separate recall notices for the products with the Food and Drug Administration. The company did not specifically say how the extraneous material was discovered in the product.
There is concern that consumers may have the recalled pancake and waffle mix in their homes because of best-by dates running through Sept. 2 2023.
The Kroger brand mix was distributed to Kroger stores in many states, including AL, AR, FL, GA, IL, IN, KY, LA, MI, MO, MS, OH, SC, TN, TX, VA and WV.
The Walmart Great Value brand mix was sent to Walmart stores nationwide.
Consumers can determine whether they have the contaminated mixes in their homes by looking for the following label information:
- The Kroger Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix is packaged in a box, net wt. 2 lbs., UPC 01111088219. The affected product has the lot codes KX2063 and KX2064, Best By Date of 09/01/2023 and 09/02/2023.
- The Walmart Great Value brand Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix, UPC 078742370828, Lot code KX2063, Best By Date of 09/01/2023.
Anyone who has either of the products is urged to not eat them and to return them to the place of purchase.
Continental Missl told the FDA that “No contaminated product has been reported by consumers to date. No injuries have been reported to date.”
