McCormick & Company Recalls Golden Dipt® Fry Easy All-Purpose Batter Due To Unlabeled Egg Ingredient

McCormick & Company, Incorporated (NYSE:MKC) has announced a voluntary recall of Golden Dipt® Fry Easy All-Purpose Batter, 10 OZ, with UPC Code 4123470111 and “BEST BY” date of NOV 17 11 AH. A very limited number of packages of Golden Dipt® All-Purpose Batter with this date code contain an undeclared egg ingredient. People who have an allergy to egg run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The recall is isolated to one geographical region of the US. The Golden Dipt® Fry Easy All-Purpose Batter packages were distributed to grocery stores in the southeastern United States beginning on January 22, 2010. The affected product is packaged in 10 OZ cartons, and the date code is found printed in white ink on the bottom of the carton.

The recall was initiated after the discovery of a packaging error that resulted in a pouch of funnel cake batter (which contains an egg ingredient) being packaged in the Golden Dipt® Fry Easy All-Purpose Batter package. The ingredient statement on the package does not list egg as an ingredient.

The “BEST BY” date of NOV 17 11AH is the only date code affected by the recall. No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date and no other McCormick products are involved in this recall.

All grocery outlets that sell Golden Dipt® Fry Easy All-Purpose Batter product are being notified to remove the affected product (UPC Code 4123470111 and date code BEST BY NOV 17 11AH) from their shelves immediately. Consumers do not need to return the product to the store where it was purchased. Instead, consumers are urged to contact McCormick’s Consumer Affairs team at 1-800-632-5847, weekdays from 9:30 AM to 9:00 PM, or weekends from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM (Eastern Time), for a replacement or full refund, as well as instructions on what to do with the product.

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration. The Company is also issuing an alert through the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network.

Recall of Tylenol Cold Liquid Products

In consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., is recalling, from the wholesale and retail level, three TYLENOL® Cold Multi-Symptom liquid products in order to update the labeling for these products. The specific products involved, listed below, are sold in the United States.

This is a wholesale and retail level recall and is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse events. No action is required by consumers or healthcare providers and consumers can continue to use the product.

Certain flavoring agents contribute small (<1%) amounts of alcohol.

Consumers with questions should call our Consumer Care Center at 1-888-222-6036 (available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. ET and Saturday - Sunday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Eastern Time.)
