Company Announcement Date: May 25, 2023
FDA Publish Date: May 25, 2023
Product Type: Food & Beverages
Reason for Announcement: Undeclared Soy
Company Name: T.W. Garner Food Company
Brand Name: Texas Pete®
Product Description: Buffalo Wing Sauce

T.W. Garner Food Company is voluntarily recalling 50,688 bottles of 12 oz. Texas Pete® Buffalo Wing Sauce with the Best By Date of Dec. 6, 2023, and UPC # 0-75500-10011-6 because some of the bottles may contain Texas Pete® Extra Mild Wing Sauce, which contains soy. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious or life- threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The product can be identified as a 12 oz. glass bottle with orange sauce called Texas Pete® Buffalo Wing Sauce. The only product affected has Best By Date of Dec. 6, 2023, printed on the cap of the product. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall was initiated after a report was received from a direct customer that a bottle labeled as Texas Pete® Buffalo Wing Sauce was located instead of Texas Pete® Extra Mild Wing Sauce. The bottle of Texas Pete® Buffalo Wing Sauce was missing the allergen declaration of soy. Investigation indicates the problem was caused by applying the wrong label during a portion of the production run.

Product was shipped to distribution centers and retail stores located in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Consumers with a soy allergy or sensitivity who have purchased Texas Pete® Buffalo Wing Sauce with a Best By Date of Dec. 6, 2023, and UPC # 0-75500-10011-6 are urged not to consume the product and dispose of it or return it to their place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact Katerine Cardoso, Quality Assurance Manager, at 336-231-6417 Monday-Friday from 8AM-6PM EST, or email contactus@garnerfoods.com. Read more about this recall on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website.
