Placeholder Image

Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin is alerting consumers to the voluntary recall of bean, rice and cheese burritos that may contain a milk product not listed on the label.

Cedarlane Low Fat Bean Rice & Cheese Style Burritos are being recalled by Cedarlane Natural Foods, Carson, Calif., because the product contains casein, a milk protein, not listed as an ingredient on the label.

Consumers who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The allergen, casein, (a milk protein) was not noted on the printed packaging of the individual units. Specifically, the printed outer carton contains the word casein in the allergen statement.The individually wrapped burrito however does not reference casein in the allergen statement.

Cedarlane Low Fat Bean Rice & Cheese Style Burritos are available in 6 oz plastic film wrapped packaging and cartons of an 8 count, 6 oz family pack.

The affected open code dates are from “062808A” (June 28, 2008) through “082908A” (Aug. 29, 2008) and is located on the bottom right, after the heating instructions, of the print plastic wrap of the individual burrito. The open code date of the outside printed carton is similar to that of the individual units but without the ‘A’ and can be found on the right hand side panel near the bottom of the carton.

Cedarlane Low Fat Bean Rice & Cheese style Burritos are distributed nationally. Consumers with the burrito may return it to their place of purchase for a full refund.
