FDA warns – 708 units of Blues Hog Sweet and Savory Seasoning recalled by Baron Spices, Inc. due to undeclared soy, wheat

According to the FDA, St. Louis, Missouri-based Baron Spices, Inc. has recalled 708 units of its Blues Hog Sweet and Savory Seasoning due to the potential presence of two undeclared allergens: soy and wheat.

Individuals who live with an allergy or severe sensitivity to either allergen are advised against consuming these products to avoid the risk of a major, possibly life-threatening allergic reaction.

Recalled by Baron Spices, Inc. on April 9, 2024, the affected units of Blues Hog Sweet and Savory were distributed to, and made available for purchase at, Giant Food Stores across Maryland, Virginia, Washington D.C., and Delaware.

The product comes in 6.25-ounce plastic bottles bearing the Blues Hog Sweet and Savory Seasoning and a printed lot number of 034-363 and 034-364.

Officials have been able to trace the issue to one of its suppliers, who delivered a replacement ingredient but failed to disclose that the replacement contains soy and wheat, two allergens not present in the original product.

Although Baron Spices, Inc. has not received any reports of illness to date, anyone who may have purchased an affected unit of Blues Hog Sweet and Savory Seasoning is asked to either discard the product or bring it back to the place of purchase for a complete refund.

Further questions may be directed to the company by calling 1-800-622-2190.
