McCain Widens Private Label Onion Rings Recall in USA

McCain Foods USA has expanded its voluntarily recall of frozen onion rings to include two additional private label retail branded products due to a packaging omission in which milk is not declared as one of the ingredients. Consumers who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they eat these products.
