Wienke’s Market in southern Door County is voluntarily recalling all of their lines of jams and jellies, according to a news release from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (DATCP) on Friday. The jams and jellies contain a butter added during the processing that has a known milk allergen that is undeclared on the label. Milk can cause serious reactions in people with allergies or severe sensitivities. Director of Bureau of food and recreational businesses Pete Haase says only people with allergies to milk should be concerned.
There have been no known reports of illnesses from eating the jams or jellies. Wienke’s Market sells the products in grocery stores and specialty shops in the state as well as through internet sales. The recall is classified as a Class II recall meaning the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote.
