The Pictsweet Company of Bells, TN is recalling specific lots of Pictsweet 32 ounce Clear Bag Breaded Okra because they contain undeclared milk product, the FDA announced.

This recall affects only Pictsweet 32 ounce Clear Bag Breaded Okra with production codes beginning with the following five digits: 1400B, 1550B, 1660B, 1730B, 1870B, 2030B, 2350B, 2500B and was distributed to retailers in the Southeast United States.

The company initiated this recall after it was discovered that product containing milk was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicated the problem was caused by a packaging redesign that included the incorrect ingredient statement.

No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date.

Consumers who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk products and have purchased Pictsweet 32 ounce Clear Bag Breaded Okra with one of the codes listed above are urged to contact the company at 1-800-367-7412, extension 417 from 9am to 5pm Central Daylight Time, Monday Friday or return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.
