Recalled Frozen Onion Rings Pose Risk to People With Milk Allergies

What to Know

  • The onion rings contain milk, which isn't listed on the packaging and could pose a risk to people who are allergic
  • The FDA said there have been no reported illnesses
  • The affected frozen onion rings were manufactured after Oct. 20, 2015 and before Sept. 23, 2016

McCain Foods USA announced it is voluntarily recalling frozen onion ring products nationwide because of mislabeled packaging that poses an allergy risk.

The packaging of frozen onion rings, sold under various brand names, does not declare milk as an ingredient. Those who suffer from milk allergies could accidentally eat the onion rings and suffer potentially life-threatening reactions.

The FDA said there have been no reported illnesses.

The recalled onion rings include 16-ounce bags under the Krasdale brand, 40-ounce bags under Save-A-Lot’s Premium Pick 5 brand, 20-ounce bags under the Spartan brand, and 16-ounce bags under the Shur Fine brand.

The affected frozen onion rings were manufactured between Oct. 20, 2015 and before Sept. 23, 2016. The production date code on the products begins with the letter “V.”

Consumers who are allergic to milk should throw out the unused product or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

The FDA website has more information about the recall.
