FDA Salmonella kswfoodworld

Auburn, NY – New Hope Mills is expanding its 12/12/16 voluntary recall for one additional code of its New Hope Mills Crepe MIX as it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The ingredient supplier has issued a recall of the bulk milk powder. Although no pathogenic bacteria have been found in the powdered milk product supplied to New Hope Mills, we have decided out of an abundance of caution to recall the product produced from the specific lot received from our ingredient supplier.

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.

The affected codes of New Hope Mills Crepe MIX were shipped to distributors and retailers in the New York, Pennsylvania and the Connecticut areas between the dates of 8/23/2016 and 10/14/2016.

The following product codes are affected by the recall:

  • New Hope Mills Crepe MIX
  • NET WT. 1 LB. 4 OZ
  • Packaged in a brown paper bag
  • UPC 074703601529 (located on back label)
  • BEST BY: 07/19/17:A1 (located on the back flap)
  • BEST BY: 09/15/17:A1 (located on the back flap)
