If you have 8-ounce boxes of Zatarain’s Red Beans & Rice Original, you might get a surprise when you open them. The company is voluntarily recalling the product because some packages actually contain Creamy Parmesan Rice Mix. Dairy products aren’t labeled on the product, which could be a problem for people with dairy allergies or sensitivities.
No illnesses have been reported and no other Zatarain’s products are involved in the recall.
The 8-ounce packages are labeled Zatarain’s Red Beans and Rice Original and have the UPC number 7142909849 with the date “Best By Jul 31 16Z.” The packages were shipped to the Midwest and the East, including North and South Carolina.
If you have a package, you should dispose of it and contact Zatarain’s at 1-877-837-3796 for a refund or replacement.
