FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - June 25, 2010 - Pure Base Distribution, LLC of Ontario, CA is recalling its 4 ounce bottles of “Pure Base Garlic Spread - Concentrate” and 7 ounce bottles of “Pure Base Garlic Spread - Ready to Spread” items because they may contain undeclared milk and wheat. People who have allergies to milk and/or wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. If you or a member of your household is allergic to milk or wheat products, do not consume these products, but return them to your retailer for a full refund.

"Pure Base Garlic Spread - Concentrate" and "Pure Base Garlic Spread – Ready to Spread" were distributed nationwide in online and traditional retail stores.

The "Pure Base Garlic Spread - Concentrate" product comes in 4 ounce clear plastic bottles and "Pure Base Garlic Spread - Ready to Spread" comes in 7 ounce clear plastic bottles. Both items have lot numbers and Best By Date stamped at the top of their red cap. Affected Lot Numbers with their Best By Dates are as follows:

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a physician.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the milk- and wheat-containing products were distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk and wheat on the label. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes.

Distribution of the products has been suspended until the FDA and the company are certain that the products are properly labeled.

Consumers who have purchased 4 ounce bottles of "Pure Base Garlic Spread - Concentrate" and 7 ounce bottles of "Pure Base Garlic Spread - Ready to Spread" items are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-888-980-7474, ext 105, Monday through Friday 9 AM – 4 PM Pacific Standard Time.

As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).

Some think that even if you don't have symptoms, that you are being affected by it. Just as a smoker who no longer coughs, when eating an irritating diet over the course of your life, you will stop reacting to it.I'll add that the problem is not with gluten, but with eating grains (or flour) which have not been soaked before being processed/cooked and eaten. There are digestive inhibitors naturally present in grains, but these will dissipate when they have been soaked and the sprouting process starts underway. There never used to be instant active dry yeast, everyone soaked their flour overnight and usually with some starter added (like sourdough), before making baked products and so forth.Avoiding gluten basically means that you are avoiding most of the more hearty grains (seeds) that are the most difficult to digest, and if you never knew about soaking or sprouting, yes, avoiding such grains would be beneficial to your health. I believe that gluten' related illnesses have little or nothing to do with gluten, but poor digestion in general, plus a lack of knowledge on preparing such glutenous foods. Everyone I've ever talked to, and it's a lot as I owned a bakery once, who mentioned gluten intolerance all had various other allergies' and ailments as well, and all had a generally poor diet and digestion.
