Basic Grain Products, Inc. in Coldwater, Ohio recalled 6.56-ounce bags of Kroger and Stop & Shop brand’s Caramel Rice Cakes due to an undeclared allergen, which is milk.

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), common signs and symptoms of a lactose intolerance include diarrhea, nausea, and sometimes vomiting.
The recalled products were sold nationwide.
In response to this, Basic Grain Products, Inc. representatives have been coordinating with retail stores, instructing them to immediately remove the product from store shelves and inventories.
The company has also issued a point of sale notice to its customers to explain why the product is being recalled and what to do if they have purchased the product.
Basic Grain Products, Inc. has advised their customers who bought the product and are allergic to milk to not consume it and to return it to the point of sale for a full refund.
There have been no reported illnesses thus far.
