Malt-O-Meal Company has recalled “Maple & Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal” and “Maple & Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal” packets sold in “Variety” cartons, with carton date codes between June 30, 2009 and October 28, 2010, because the products contain instant non-fat dry milk manufactured by the Plainview Milk Products Cooperative. Plainview has recently commenced a recall of instant non-fat dry milk and other ingredients that have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria.
The product was distributed nationally under a variety of brands in cartons of six to 15 packets. Brands include Cub Foods, Diamond Crystal, Fastco, Flavorite, Foodland, Good ‘n Hearty, Hearty Traditions, Hy-Top, IGA, Mom’s Best Natural, Megaroons, Millville, Our Family, Richfood, Shop ‘n Save and Smart Menu.
Consumers should look on the product cartons for carton date codes that are between June 30, 2009 (which would be printed as “JUN3009”) and October 28, 2010 (which would be printed as “OCT2810”). These dates are usually printed as the first seven characters of a 15-character string. If you want a list of the affected products, contact Shanna Malone by email at Shanna.Malone@beasleyallen.com.
