Hot on the heels of the alfalfa sprout recall comes another food recall; the Quaker Oats Company has recalled a small amount of Aunt Jemima Pancake and Waffle Mix due to potential salmonella contamination.
No illnesses have been reported and the risk is very low as salmonella bacteria is killed at temperatures of 160° F, but better safe than sorry. The recall only includes products that have "Best Before" dates of February 8, 2009 through February 16, 2009 and have the following UPC codes:
- Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Complete, 5 lb. box, UPC code 30000 43272
- Aunt Jemima Original, 2 lb. box, UPC code 30000 05040
- Aunt Jemima Original Complete, 2 lb. box, UPC code 30000 05070
- Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Complete, 2 lb. box, UPC code 30000 05300
If you have any recalled Aunt Jemima products, return them to the store you purchased from for a full refund. The recalled products were shipped to 17 states: Texas, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Illinois, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Colorado, Wisconsin, Ohio, New York, New Mexico, Kansas, and Utah.
