FDA Warns – Single-lot recall of HyVee Hamburger Chili Macaroni Skillet Meal by Gilster-Mary Lee Corp. due to undeclared milk

Gilster-Mary Lee Corp., of Steelville, Illinois, has recalled one lot of its HyVee Hamburger Chili Macaroni Skillet Meal to the consumer level because of undisclosed milk in the product, according to the FDA. 

The action was announced on March 28, 2023, after a customer email alerted company officials to the mis-packaging and/or inadequate product labeling. 

Those primarily at risk are individuals who are allergic to, or have a heightened sensitivity to, milk and milk products. Vulnerable consumers could suffer a major, life-threatening reaction if they ingest the recalled product. 

The impacted products are packaged in 5.2-ounce cartons bearing a Best-By date of “FEB 08 24 Y18,” under UPC (Universal Product Code) #75450-08552. An image of the product packaging can be viewed in the FDA communication for easy identification. 

Though they were distributed and sold at HyVee Retail Stores and Dollar Fresh Market Stores across Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin, Gilster-mary Lee Corp. has not received any reports of related illnesses to date. 

Customers are encouraged to either dispose of the affected product or return it to the place of purchase to receive a total refund.
