A voluntary recall has been issued on some Marie Callender’s 7 and 14 ounce Cheese Biscuit Mix packages due to possible E. Coli contamination. The 7-ounce mixes have been sold in retail stores in AL, CA, WA, UT, and TX. The recalled 7-ounce packages affected have Best Buy dates of 3-22-17 and 5-17-17. The 14-ounce package with the Best Buy date of 6-17-17 was only sold in Stockton, CA.
E. Coli, although it is harmless to most can potentially cause serious illness or death to the young, elderly or those with compromised immune systems. The recall comes in light of the flour ingredient, which has been recalled by General Mills and is the culprit to numerous other food product recalls.
No other Marie Callender Cheese Biscuit Mix Best Buy dates are included in this recall and there are no illnesses reported to date linked to the consumption of these products.
“The quality of Marie Callender’s products and the safety of our customers are the utmost important issues,” said Kevin Greene, VP of Sales At ICC. “We care deeply about people, our consumers, our employees and our supplier partners. We are working with our retail customers and the FDA to ensure any affected product is removed from the marketplace immediately. We thank you for your patience, and appreciate your continued trust that we will do the right thing for our consumers.”
Anyone who has products with “Best Buy” dates matching those recalled should throw them away.
