Allergy Alert: Ralston Recalls Instant Oatmeal

Ralston Foods announced earlier this week that it was recalling 14,664 cartons of Western Family Variety Pack Instant Oatmeal cereal bearing a "Best if used by" date code of DEC0409N. A small number of cartons contain an undeclared milk ingredient.

Individuals who are allergic to milk may suffer severe – possibly life-threatening – reactions upon consuming this product. Other consumers may eat the oatmeal without risk of adverse reaction.

Ralston initiated the recall after learning that "fruit and cream" instant oatmeal packets had been accidentally included in some variety pack cartons. Consumers who purchased the recalled cereal can return the product to the store for a full refund.
