Bakery recalls frozen pancakes for allergy risk
LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) — Middle East Bakery, Inc. is recalling its dairy-free, gluten-free frozen pancakes sold with a Market Basket store label because they may contain undisclosed milk.
The company said Monday its “Market Basket Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free Pancakes” were sold in Market Basket Supermarket Stores in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. It said people who are allergic or sensitive to milk could have an allergic reaction, and one illness has been reported.
The bakery said the problem was caused by “a temporary breakdown” in the production and packaging processes. People who bought the pancakes should discard them or return them to the place of purchase for a refund. The recalled packages contain 12 pancakes in a 14-ounce box with UPC 4970571120.
