Van’s-brand frozen pancakes are recalled

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of Van's-brand wheat-free homestyle pancakes because of a labeling error.

Van's International Foods of Vernon, Calif., initiated the voluntary recall because the frozen pancakes might contain undeclared wheat, gluten, milk and egg, posing a health risk for people who have allergies or sensitivities to the ingredients.

The 118 cases of recalled pancakes might have been distributed in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, New Jersey, New York, California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Washington, Oregon, Texas, Idaho and Hawaii.

The product comes in a 12.4-ounce beige package with an orange stripe on the top and a triangular blue gluten-free symbol in the upper right-hand corner with the lot number 200060629B1 located on the side flap of the box. The Best if used by date is March 30, 2010.

Consumers may return the product to the place of purchase for a refund or contact the company at 303-848-6013 or via email at [email protected]
