Unlisted milk ingredient leads to recall of fish batter
Placeholder Image

State Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin is alerting Georgians to the recall of some fish batter mixes.

Williams Foods Inc, of Lenexa, Kan., is voluntarily recalling 22-ounce canisters of Bass Pro Shops Uncle Buck’s Light ‘n Krispy Original and Light ‘n Krispy Hot & Spicy Fish Batter Mixes and 8-ounce pouches of Bass Pro Shops Uncle Buck’s Light ‘n Krispy Original Fish Batter Mix because the products contain milk (as part of a minor component of added natural flavors) without listing it on the label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The products were distributed through Bass Pro Shops retail stores nationwide.

This recall applies to the following lot numbers: 31207A11, 35107A11, 06308A11 (22-ounce canisters) and 3530716 (8-ounce pouches). Only the “Light ‘n Krispy” versions of the Bass Pro Shop’s Uncle Buck’s Fish Batter Mixes are affected by this recall.

There have been no reported allergic reactions attributed to this product. The problem was discovered by Williams Foods during a routine label review.  Williams Foods confirmed in its investigation that the products were produced with an ingredient that contains milk that is not listed on the label.

Concerned consumers who have packages of these recalled mixes should return them to the stores where they were purchased for a full refund.

Any consumers with questions about this recall should also contact Williams Foods Corporate Quality Department at 1-800-255-6736.
