Gold Medal Spaghetti Sauce Mix Recall

CF Sauer Foods Inc. has announced a Spaghetti Sauce Mix recall for all packages of their Gold Medal 1.37 ounce pouches bearing the code date 8119R. The microwavable spaghetti mix was recalled since the packaging fails to identify the presence of milk as an ingredient, which caused serious allergic reactions for some people.

The recall applies to one lot of the Gold Medal Spaghetti Sauce Mix, which were distributed through retail stores in Alabama, Kentucky and Missippi since April 28, 2008. According to a press release issued yesterday, the sale of pouches that did not declare the presence of milk was caused by an oversight in the company’s development process.

Milk allergy is the most common food allergy, effecting between 2% and 3% of infants in the United States. The only known treatment is the total avoidance of milk proteins, and most children with a milk allergy outgrow the risk after they surpass three years old. Symptoms of an allergic reaction to milk could include skin rash, hives, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation and distress.
