Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Organic Yellow Peas are subject to this recall:

  • Maine Grains Crop Rotation Organic Yellow Peas, sold in one (1) pound clear cello bags with a batch/lot number ending in 3YP19 and thought to have been sold between 10.17.2019 and 11.1.2020. Please note: customers may have purchased this product re-packaged under the “GrowNYC” brand label.
  • Maine Grains Crop Rotation Organic Yellow Peas, sold in twenty-five (25) pound bulk sacks with a batch/lot number ending in 3YP19 and thought to have been sold between 10.17.2019 and 11.1.2020 with contact information for the company in Skowhegan, Maine

==> No item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

These Organic Yellow Peas were known to be marketed, distributed and sold in the northeastern United States and to online customers who ordered through http://www.mainegrains.com. The company reports the majority of the recalled Organic Yellow Peas are thought to have gone to New York City although it is always possible these food products had wider distribution within the country. When in doubt, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.

According to the FDA, this recall was initiated after it was discovered that certain Organic Soybeans of very similar size, shape and color to Organic Yellow Peas were mistakenly shipped by a farmer supplier to Maine Grains, Inc. and were subsequently used to fulfill the orders of Organic Yellow Peas.

Please note: while these Organic Yellow Peas may past their use-by dates, they may be in your freezers or storage chillers. Consequently, if you have purchased these products during the time period ranging from September 1, 2019 and December 11, 2020, please check your refrigerators, chillers and/or freezers to ensure these food products have not been stored for future consumption. If found, these products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase for refund.
