Cooks who were banking on jarred gravy for Thanksgiving may want to do a quick check of the pantry.
Heinz has recalled about 500 cases of its HomeStyle Bistro Au Jus Gravy because they may have been mislabeled as pork gravy, the FDA and Heinz announced.
The mislabeling will omit that the jars contain milk and soy, ingredients that could put people with an allergy or sensitivity to milk or soy at risk.
There have been no complaints or illness reported as of yet.
Consumers should look for 12 oz. jars labeled Heinz HomeStyle Gravy Pork with best by date of Dec. 28, 2017 and a manufacturing code of MU6F04 4Q and a time stamp following the code. The jar's UPC would be 013000798907.
For retailers, the box would be labeled Heinz HomeStyle Gravy Bistro Au Jus with case best by date of Dec. 28, 2017 and the code MU6F04. The case UPC is 10013000798508.
The gravy should be returned to the store where purchased for an exchange or refund.
Consumers can call 1-866-572-3808 Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
