Cavendish Farms hash browns recalled due to undeclared wheat

Cavendish Farms Corporation has issued a recall of nearly 450 cases of its Original Hash Brown Patties because of an undeclared wheat allergen. To be exact, 441 cases of their 42.3 ounce packages of hash browns were recalled.

While they were produced in Canada, the recalled hash browns were shipped to retailers in the United States. Retailers such as ShopRite, Price Rite Marketplace, The Fresh Grocer, and Fairway Market sold the hashbrowns, but they’ve now been removed from store shelves. These stores were located in 9 states, those states included: Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.

It seems as though the undeclared allergen was the result of a mislabeling during packaging as the release on the FDA’s website explains, “Cavendish Farms was notified by a supplier that an ingredient it provided was mislabeled and did not identify the presence of wheat.”

Undeclared allergens as we know now can have mild effects, but they can also be extremely dangerous, especially for those with weakened immune systems. Children, the elderly, and pregnant women are all in much greater danger when it comes to the consumption of undeclared allergens.

If you purchased these recalled hash browns, you should discard them or return them to your retailer for a refund. At this time no illnesses or injuries have been reported related to this recall.
