Dieppe, New Brunswick, Canada-headquartered Cavendish Farms is recalling 441 cases of 42.3 oz packages of Original Hash Brown Patties because they may contain undeclared wheat. People who have allergies to the grain or have celiac disease run the risk of serious allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The recalled packs were sold in the US states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island in retail supermarkets that are part of the Wakefern Food Corp. cooperative which includes ShopRite, Price Rite Marketplace, The Fresh Grocer and Fairway Market. All stores have removed the product from shelves.

The Original Hash Brown Patties packaging has UPC code 0 56210 34217 1 and a best before date of 2024 FE 01 stamped on the side. Shoppers who have the item in home freezers are urged to dispose of or return it to the place of purchase.

Cavendish Farms was notified by a supplier that an ingredient it provided was mislabeled and did not identify the presence of wheat. No confirmed illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue, and the problem has since been corrected.
