Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Tommy Irvin is alerting Georgians to check their cabinets for a type of cracker that has been recalled.

The Back to Nature Foods Company is recalling 26,472 boxes of Back to Nature Sesame Ginger Rice Thins crackers with a "Best When Used By" date of 16 May 2007, because a small number of boxes were inadvertently manufactured using a milk ingredient seasoning, and no milk ingredients are declared on the label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The company has voluntarily issued a nationwide recall to alert any milk-allergic consumers who may still have the crackers at home. They were sold in retail grocery and health food stores. The product has a UPC code of 59283-10013 and comes in a 4 oz retail carton. No other varieties of Back to Nature Rice Thins or any other Back to Nature products are involved in this recall.

Allergy tests confirmed the presence of milk in samples sent for testing after the company received two consumer reports of allergic reactions. The company's investigation has determined that the wrong seasoning was used in the manufacturing of a very small number of the boxes of crackers.

Consumers are advised not to consume the product and are asked to call 800-433-9361 for a full refund.
