According to the FDA, Kermit’s Key Lime Ginger Wasabi Marinade, with a net weight of 12-ounces and a best-by date code os Aug/31/2016 is being recalled due to undeclared soybeans and wheat ingredients in Soy Sauce.

The presence of undeclared soy and soybeans in the product can elicit life-threatening allergic reactions in sensitive individuals while undeclared wheat may elicit adverse health reactions in both individuals sensitive to wheat protein or to gluten (such as individuals with Celiac disease).

Individuals allergic to wheat protein can suffer acute allergic reactions if they are exposed to wheat flour, with the possibility for life-threatening anaphylaxis in particularly sensitive individuals. Gluten intolerance in adults exposed to gluten can manifest as diarrhea and under chronic exposure can lead to weight loss and ultimately malabsorption (Steatorrhea), Anemia, and/or Osteomalacia.

The products are sold in clear glass bottles in the sizes with best-by dates as indicated above. This recall is applicable to all Sauces with the indicated best-by date or earlier.

The recalled products were distributed in retail stores in Florida and Maryland, and sold direct to consumer via the Internet through Kermit’s Web site at http://www.keylimeshop.com.
