Eau Claire, WI, United States (4E) – Silver Spring Foods, Inc. is voluntarily recalling its “Waterfront Bistro Tartar Sauce” because there’s a chance an incorrect back label attached to the bottle doesn’t correctly identify ingredients posing an allergen risk, specifically, egg.
People with an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product, said Silver Spring, the world’s largest grower and processor of horseradish.
No illnesses or consumer complaints have been reported to date, however.
The recalled product has a Best Buy date of JUL 31 18 S3551 or AUG 28 18 S3351, and an incorrect UPC barcode: 21130 12242 (Hot Cocktail Sauce).
No other Silver Spring or Waterfront Bistro products are affected by the recall.
Silver Spring is taking the extra precautionary measure of issuing this recall so consumers that have bought the product are properly made aware.
The recalled product is retailed under the Brand name Waterfront Bistro Tartar Sauce and is distributed at Albertsons, Amigos, Jewel-Osco, Lucky, Market Street, Pak N Save, Pavilions, Randall’s, Safeway, Shaw’s, Star Market, Super Saver, Tom Thumb, United Supermarkets, and Vons stores.
It was sold in the following states: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Washington DC and Wyoming.
The recall was initiated after production checks at the company’s manufacturing facility found the incorrect back label for Hot Cocktail Sauce instead of Tartar Sauce.
The manufacturing lot of labels from the company’s supplier was also utilized in the production dates/lot codes of BEST BY: JUL 31 18 S3351 and BEST BY: AUG 28 18 S3351.
The defect was caused by a temporary breakdown in one of the label supplier’s production and quality control processes. Silver Spring is working with its supplier to ensure this anomaly does not occur again.
Consumers who have the recalled product in their possession and are allergic to egg should not consume the item.
Mislabeled product can be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions should contact Silver Spring Foods at 1-800-280-1968 Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm Central Standard Time or via [email protected]
