ConAgra Foods has recalled trail mix due to the presence of an ingredient that contains milk protein, which is not declared on the packaging.

The firm has been told of one consumer allergic reaction associated with the product.

DAVID Trail Mix Sweet & Salty flavor was sold as part of multi variety packages that also contain DAVID Trail Mix Classic. DAVID Trail Mix Classic is not impacted.

The finished product is made by a third party supplier who is separately recalling products.

It has UPC 26200 23885 5oz. bags/149g and was shipped to retail food stores and distributors in the US and Mexico.

ConAgra Foods did not reveal the supplier and said a "limited quantity" was affected when asked how many packages were recalled.

 

Ethereal Confections recall

In an unrelated recall, Ethereal Confections is recalling Inclusion Bars & Mendiants and Meltaway Bars & because they may contain undeclared amounts of milk.

Inclusion Bars & Mendiants with expiration dates of 10/22/2015 through 4/15/2016 and Meltaway Bars & Meltaways with dates of 10/22/2015 through 01/15/2016 are affected. They were distributed from 4/22/2015 through 10/15/2015.

The recall comes after FDA testing found the presence of milk. The product, labeled as "dairy free", contains levels of milk protein that can lead to life-threatening reactions in milk-allergic individuals.

Product was distributed to retail stores in the US, sold at Ethereal Confections in Woodstock, Illinois, and online.
