Heinz recalls hundreds of jars of gravy due to safety concerns just two days before Thanksgiving
- The company said as many as 500 cases of gravy containing milk and soy may be mislabeled as pork gravy
- Those with allergies to milk and soy could consume the gravy by mistake
If you plan on using Heinz gravy over your turkey on Thanksgiving, might want to check the label.
Heinz is voluntarily recalling about 500 cases of Pork Gravy that might contain milk and soy – which could be a problem for those allergic to those ingredients.
Heinz says its Bistro Au Jus Gravy, which contains milk and soy, may be mislabelled as pork gravy (above)
The company said that its HomeStyle Bistro Au Jus Gravy, which contains the ingredients that could even be fatal for those with severe allergies to them, may be mislabelled as the pork gravy.
So far, no one has reported becoming sick from the gravy.
Heinz gravy users who planning to pour it over their T-day bird will want to check the label’s UPC code
The voluntary recall for consumers affects only the 12-ounce glass jars that are labeled best by Dec. 28, 2017 with a UPC code of 013000798907, reports the company on BusinessWire. Retailers will have a different code.
‘Consumers who purchased this product should not eat it,’ warns the company, which says the recall only affects jars in the US.
‘We deeply regret this situation and apologise to any consumers we have disappointed,’ it said.
Consumers should return the jars to whichever store they bought them for a full refund.
