Undeclared allergens are the theme for today's recall list.
People with wheat allergies who like the convenience of frozen foods should be on the alert this week. Van’s International Foods is recalling 118 cases of its frozen Van's Wheat Free Homestyle Pancakes, because they may contain wheat, in addition to gluten, milk, and eggs, none of which are listed among the ingredients. The frozen pancakes were distributed nationwide to Whole Foods, Wegmans, Giant Carlisle, Sprouts, and Martins, although other stores may carry the product, as well. More information
