This Product Sold by Amazon Fresh Was Just Recalled, FDA Warns
There could be a serious health risk for certain consumers.
Amid the holidays and the ongoing COVID surge, you may be doing two things even more than usual: eating comfort food and shopping online. If that sounds like you, you'll want to read on for the latest recall news that could affect a purchase you recently made on Amazon Fresh.
Aplenty Rotini With Plant Based Bolognese is being recalled for safety reasons.
Garden City-based Seviroli Foods is recalling its product, Aplenty Rotini with Plant Based Bolognese Meal Kit, per the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The reason for the recall is the presence of an undeclared allergen: milk not named on the label.
The recalled product was sold at Amazon Fresh stores and online.
The affected products in the recall were sold through Amazon Fresh stores and Fresh online channels. They were distributed throughout the United States. The issue was discovered on Dec. 22, announced by the company on Dec. 26, and published by the FDA on Dec. 27.
The Aplenty labeling does not disclose the presence of milk.
The recall was initiated after the company discovered that products containing milk were inadvertently packaged in packaging for Aplenty Rotini with Plant-Based Bolognese Meal Kits. These kits don't include milk in the ingredient statement. The mixup could be dangerous to those with a milk allergy, although fortunately no related illnesses or incidents have been reported at this time. All recalled products have been removed from Amazon stores.
