Gluten-free pancake and waffle mix recalled: New Hope Mills chia mix
A gluten-free pancake and waffle mix is being recalled because of an undeclared ingredient. The official name on the package is New Hope Mills Gluten Free Chia Pancake and Waffle Mix, and it was sold in 16 oz boxes. The company has shared that soy is not labeled on the package but included in the ingredients and may cause problems for people who are allergic to it.
The recalled New Hope Mills Gluten Free Chia Pancake and Waffle Mix was sold in multiple locations, but the company believes only the following states were affected: Florida, Pennsylvania, New York, New Hampshire and Oklahoma. However, the item was also available online from several retailers, so consumers may want to check their packages. The 16 oz boxes are red with large pictures of pancakes covered in syrup and have UPC codes of 07470353012. The brand has issued a limited number of affected best by dates which include 11/13/2014, 11/14/2014, 2/26/2015, 7/29/2015, 10/4/2015 and 12/13/2015.
New Hope Mills did not discover the undeclared ingredient on its own, and it was contacted by Raymond-Hadley Corp. to alert the brand about the soy before the FDA issued an alert. One of the ingredients in the mix has soy, but it is not labeled on the package. This may still affect people who have celiac disease or gluten sensitivities because multiple allergies are possible, and some people cannot tolerate soy.
The company recommends that consumers return their New Hope Mills Gluten Free Chia Pancake and Waffle Mix and ask for refunds. They can also call the company directly for help at 315-252-2676. At this time, there are no other products being recalled from New Hope Mills.
