(FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) - Nature’s Path Foods announced they're recalling thousands of boxes of their children’s gluten-free cereal because it may contain an “undeclared gluten,” according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The recall is for more than 400,000 boxes in the EnviroKidz line – Choco Chimps, Gorilla Munch and Jungle Munch.
The error was isolated to one facility and due to air contamination as a result of incorrect production scheduling. Other gluten-free Nature’s Path and EnviroKidz products are not impacted and are not part of this voluntary recall, officials said.
“Making healthy, nutritious, organic food is our passion,” said Arjan Stephens, executive VP of Sales & Marketing at Nature’s Path. “This failure to meet the gluten-free standard our consumers expect and trust from us is a deep concern. We have reviewed and changed our internal practices to ensure our gluten-free cereals are not impacted in the future.”
