FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Santa Rosa, California, November 7, 2008. Amy's Kitchen Inc. of Santa Rosa, California is voluntarily recalling Tofu Scramble in a Pocket Sandwich Lot 10 H148, because of the presence of milk in a product that is labeled non-dairy.

The code date printed in white on the easy open zipper end is

The products could cause an allergic reaction if consumed by any individuals allergic to milk. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to dairy products run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product. Consumers without milk allergies can safely consume the product.

The recall was initiated after one report of an allergic reaction due to this product, which was not labeled as containing dairy ingredients. Testing has shown the presence of milk.

No other products or code dates of Amy's Kitchen products are affected by this recall.

Consumers allergic to milk should contact Amy's Kitchen for a replacement or refund. The product is distributed to retailers only. Retailers are instructed to destroy the affected product.

The devil made me say this: Must be under the declared FDA standard for the m-word, maybe?

I have bought Amy's Kitchen products. Many of which are good. Never eat tofu (the two words together to (toe) fu (fungus) just kinda makes me say no thanks. But the pizza with the cornmeal crust is very good.

Also this company gave their regular phone number to call  collect no less. What other company has stepped up and done the right thing like that? Shows they are concerned about your health and want to hear from you if you have a concern or problem. Maybe this could be the model for all the other companies for the future. Be upfront and honest - not hide behind statements "No, not our food, nothing whatsoever wrong with it. (Just keep on giving us your money from buying it and eating it.)"
