Editorial comment:

Two days ago US Food Safety posted the recall below. The FDA sent US Food Safety and e-mail notice of the recall this morning. Missing were the UPC codes.

The manufacturer was Jacqueline’s Wholesale Bakery.

Let’s look at both recalls. The Price Chopper recall has the basic information their consumers need.  Price Chopper customers don’t need to know the manufacturer.

The FDA recall has some but not all the information. MOST FDA recalls at least include the UPC codes and sell by dates. This one does not. It mentioned that if you had a supermarket card you would be notified. What if you didn’t?

Here is “Soundbite” from the FDA recall:

 Price Chopper Supermarket is voluntarily recalling three varieties of Burst Cookies- Brownie, Almond and Raspberry- a frozen cookie produced by Jacqueline’s Wholesale Bakery and baked off in all of the chain’s in-store bakeries, due to the presence of milk, a known allergen, which was not declared on the ingredient label. The product is not harmful in any way to those who are not allergic to milk products.

>>What does baked off mean exactly?

In addition to alerting the media, Price Chopper initiated its SoundBite recall notification procedure, which uses purchase data and consumer phone numbers on file in connection with the company’s AdvantEdge (loyalty) card to directly alert those households that may have purchased the product in question.

>>What if a customer didn’t have a card?

We praise Price Chopper and other retailers for posting recalls on their websites. Consumers should not be confused with posted information.
