Pennsylvania based food manufacturer, Utz, is recalling one type of their pretzels due to a mislabeling issue. The pretzels may contain milk that is not listed on the packaging.
Utz Quality Foods has voluntarily recalled their Bachman 10-ounce Twist Pretzel packages with an expiration code of July 22, 2019 because they do not list milk as an ingredient.
This can be very dangerous for someone with a dairy allergy or sensitivity.
The pretzels were sold and shipped to Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, Maine, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and West Virginia. The UPC code on the packages is 0-77817-10580-8.
If you recently purchased the recalled pretzels, Utz urges you to discard them or return them for a full refund.
Recovering compensation after an injury from a defective product
If you can prove that your food poisoning or food-related illness or injury was caused by a contaminated or misbranded food product, you may be able to pursue a product liability claim against the business that sold or prepared that food product. You should also contact your local health department to report the incident.
A claim against the negligent business or manufacturer for food poisoning or food- related illness or injury will seek recovery of medical bills, lost wages, out of pocket expenses and pain and suffering.
