Announcement

Whole Foods Market is issuing an advisory to customers who purchased Spicy Kimchi, White Kimchi, Kimchi Fried Rice and Kimchi Guacamole from one of its Los Angeles-area stores because the items contained fish, shellfish or tree nuts (pine nuts) that were not listed on product labels. All potentially affected products have been removed from store shelves, and the company is recalling the items out of an abundance of caution.  People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to tree nuts, fish or shellfish run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

Included in this advisory are the following items, which were offered at the company’s 365 by Whole Foods Market store in Silver Lake between May 25 and May 27:

  • Spicy Kimchi offered at the salad bar (undeclared fish/shellfish)
  • Kimchi Fried Rice offered on the hot food bar (undeclared tree nuts)

Announcement

Sweet Earth Natural Foods is voluntarily recalling its Big Sur Burrito, 7 oz, due to a packaging error. As a result, a small number of these products contain an undeclared milk allergen. The precautionary recall was necessitated when it was discovered that a small quantity of Santa Cruz Burritos were packaged into Big Sur Burrito pouches. The Santa Cruz Burrito contains milk in the form of cheese, which is not listed as an allergen on the Big Sur Burrito pouch, therefore posing a potential risk to people who have an allergy to milk.

In some individuals the consumption of milk could present a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.

These retail products were distributed nationwide from our manufacturing facility between the dates of March 30, 2016 and May 6, 2016.
