There are no reported illnesses to date associated with this recall. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. The product is safe for consumption by those who do not have serious wheat allergies.

Stutzman Farms became aware of the issue for the items after it was brought to our attention by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. The product labels for the milling items, which contain spelt, omitted wheat as an allergen.

Customers with a wheat allergy who have purchased the affected product should dispose of it or return it to Stutzman Farms for a refund. Customers with questions may call Stutzman Farms at 330-6774-1289 extension 2 and leave a message.
