Allergy Alert: Undeclared Milk in Kodiak Cakes Energy Waffles Poses Risk to Some
The recalled frozen waffles were distributed nationwide to retail grocery stores
An allergy risk has prompted Kodiak Cakes to recall all lots and date codes of its Blueberry Chia Energy Waffles (10.72 oz.) that were on store shelves prior to March 5, 2018.
What's the risk?
The affected product contains milk that is not listed on the ingredient label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The recalled frozen waffles were distributed nationwide to retail grocery stores.
The improper labeling was discovered when a consumer notified Kodiak Cakes that a family member had a reaction to the product and that milk was not included in the allergen statement. While the specific ingredient whey is included in the ingredient declaration, the presence of milk is not identified in the ingredient list or declared in the allergen statement.
To date, this complaint is the only report of injury or illness related to this recall.
What should consumers do?
Consumers who purchased Kodiak Cakes Blueberry Chia Energy Waffles before March 5, 2018 can return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. The product does not pose a risk to those not allergic to milk.
For more information about this recall, consumers can contact Kodiak Cakes by calling (801) 328-4067.
