Stonewall Kitchen of York, Maine is voluntarily recalling limited quantities of Stonewall Kitchen Cinnamon Apple, Orange Cranberry and Toasted Coconut Pancake & Waffle Mixes, after the FDA found traces of Salmonella at the manufacturing facility of the ingredient supplier for the powdered buttermilk used in these products. Although no pathogenic bacteria have been found in the powdered products supplied to Stonewall Kitchen by the ingredient manufacturer, nor in any of the Stonewall Kitchen pancake & waffle mixes themselves, we have decided out of an abundance of caution to recall products produced from the specific lots purchased from this ingredient supplier.
About Salmonella: Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
A limited quantity of products were distributed nationwide to consumers through the ten Stonewall Kitchen Company Stores, Stonewall Kitchen’s direct-to-consumer division (catalog/internet) and through the wholesale division.
Affected product includes the following details:
Name: Stonewall Kitchen Cinnamon Apple Pancake & Waffle Mix
To date, Stonewall Kitchen has not experienced any problems or complaints about these products. No injuries or illnesses have been reported. This is a voluntary recall as a precautionary measure.
This voluntary recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the US Food and Drug Administration.
If consumers have any of the above product, they must discontinue use and discard product immediately.
