Masa’s Sauces – Allergy Alert

The company behind the Masa’s brand of food sauces has announced a recall of 3 products. Recalled are the brand’s sweet and sour sauce, its curry coconut sauce and its BBQ sauce.

The problem, says the company in a press release announcing the recall, is that the sauces are made with a milk ingredient that is not listed on the foods’ labels.

Masa’s Gourmet Sweet and Sour Sauce

Covered here are 12-ounce glass bottles bearing the UPC 786764406783 and one of these lot codes:

  • 1740225

The company has not said how many of the mislabeled sauces made it onto store shelves but does say that the products were sent to distribution centers in several states:

  • California
  • Illinois
  • New York
  • Oregon
  • Washington

The company has not said how the milk ingredient omission was discovered. So far, neither Rikki USA nor the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, has logged any reports of anyone eating the sauces and becoming ill.

If you have any of the recalled sauces you are urged to return them to your place of purchase for a refund. And if you need more information, you can contact the company at 1-866-707-4554 during regular business hours.
