ConAgra Recalls Orville Redenbacher's Classic Kettle Korn Ready-to-Eat Popcorn

ConAgra Foods Inc. (CAG) said Friday it is recalling packages of its Orville Redenbacher's Classic Kettle Korn flavored ready-to-eat popcorn that may contain an undeclared allergen, milk.

The Omaha-based food company is recalling about 14,000 cases of the product shipped to retail food locations nationwide, and has notified the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Certain bags of the Kettle Korn ready-to-eat popcorn may have inadvertently been filled with white cheddar flavored popcorn, which contains an allergen, milk, which is not declared on the product label.

The issue was discovered after a consumer found white cheddar flavored popcorn in a Kettle Korn package.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. There have been no illnesses reported to date in connection with the product.

The recall is limited to the following products:

- Orville Redenbacher's Classic Kettle Korn 5.0-ounce packages with Unit UPC 0 27000 52321 6 and best by dates SEP 2, 3, 4 of 2013.

- Orville Redenbacher's Classic Kettle Korn 1.5-ounce packages with Unit UPC 0 27000 52325 4 and best by dates SEP 3, 4 of 2013.

No other Orville Redenbacher's products are impacted, the company said.
