Kinnikinnick has recalled a number of products because of unlabelled milk in the products. There is no gluten in the products.
The recalled products are Kinnikinnick Original Homestyle Waffles; Kinnikinnick Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Homestyle Waffles; Kinnikinnick Kinni-Kwik Bread & Bun Mix; Kinnikinnick Panko Style Bread Crumbs; Kinnikinnick Pancake & Waffle Mix.
It should be noted that this problem was identified by Kinnikinnick’s own internal ingredient testing problem. Kinnikinnick determined that another ingredient contained milk allergens that were not listed by the manufacturer of that ingredient.
This recall may lead to recalls of other products who use the same ingredient in their products. We will send notices of any other high priority recalls.
