Food For Life Baking Company issues voluntary recall of Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Cereal due to undeclared allergen

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment today announced a voluntary recall by Food For Life Baking Company of Corona, Calif., of its Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Cereals. The recall was initiated as a precautionary measure because the products may contain almond, an allergen not listed as a product ingredient/allergen.
There have been no reported cases of illness at this time. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to almonds run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The recalled products were sold nationwide through health food distributors and natural food retailers. The cereal was available at King Soopers and City Market locations throughout Colorado. Food For Life Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Cereals are sold dry in 16-ounce (454 gram) cereal cartons in three varieties: Original (orange carton), Golden Flax (blue carton) and Cinnamon Raisin (purple carton). 
This recall is limited to products listed below that were shipped nationwide between Nov. 20, 2012, and Feb. 11, 2013.
