M & P Food Productions, Ltd. Issues Allergy Alert on Several Varieties of Vareniki/ Dumplings Because of Undeclared Wheat

M & P Food Productions, LTD. of Brooklyn, NY is recalling several varieties of Vareniki/Dumplings because it was discovered that the products contain undeclared Milk and Wheat, therefore posing a potential health hazard. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to these allergens run the risk of illness or serious or potentially fatal allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The ingredients statement of the products did not declare the presence of milk or wheat. As a result, we are recalling all of the products listed below with "BEST BEFORE SEP 19 2011" through "BEST BEFORE MAR 19 2012" from the market:
  •     Bapehuku Dupling brand Vareniki cabbage, NET WT. 14 oz., UPC 7 07163 02619 8;
  •     Bapehuku Dupling brand Vareniki potato & onion, NET WT. 14 oz., UPC 7 0 7163 02616 7;
  •     Bapehuku Dupling brand Vareniki potato & mushroom, NET WT. 14 oz., UPC 7 07163 02617 4;
  •     Bapehuku Dupling brand Vareniki farmer cheese, NET WT. 14 oz., UPC 7 0716 302618 1;
  •     Bapehuku Dupling brand Vareniki sour cherry, NET WT. 14 oz., UPC 7 07163 02615 0.
The products were distributed to retail stores in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, New Jersey, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

All products are packed by weight (14 oz.) and are distributed frozen in sealed plastic bags. Labeling is printed directly onto the individual bags. Vareniki Cabbage packages have a yellow and green background with green and black lettering. Vareniki Potato & Onion packages have a yellow and brown background with brown and black lettering. Vareniki Potato & Mushroom packages have a yellow and blue background with blue and black lettering. Vareniki Farmer Cheese packages have a yellow and purple background with purple and black lettering. Vareniki Sour Cherry packages have a yellow and red background with red and black lettering.

No illnesses related to the recalled products have been reported to date.

The recall was initiated as a result of a labeling problem discovered during a USDA inspection which was confirmed by the FDA during a follow-up visit to the manufacturer.

Consumers who have purchased any of the above listed products are urged to return it (them) to the place of purchase for a refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (718) 438-6421 Monday - Friday 9 am - 4 pm ET.

Wish I could give you a hug. Unfortunately I know how that feels with Neurologists, Internists, Endocrinologists, Rheumatologists, GIs..... I got so tired of crying my drive home after refusing yet another script for Prozac. I do hope your GI can give you some answers even if it is just to rule out other possible issues. Keep on the gluten and we are here for you.

It is too bad that so often a full panel isn't done. Glad your appointment got moved up and hopefully you will get a clearer answer from the GI. Do keep eating gluten until the celiac testing is done. Once the testing is done do give the diet a good strict try. Hang in there.

That makes sense...I cried with relief when I got my diagnosis just because there was finally an answer. Please know that you are not weak or crazy. Keep pushing for testing. It could still be celiac, it could be Crohns. Push your Dr's to figure this out. Best wishes.

Thank you all very much. I actually cried when I got the answer. I wanted an explanation that I could "fix." Now I'm back to thinking I'm just weak and possibly crazy. I know I'm not crazy, but you know.

From what I have read online there is about a 1-3% chance of getting a false positive for celiac disease from a blood test. Was it a blood test that you got done? It may be worth your while to get a biopsy or more testing just to confirm it. I know being gluten free is a pain but it is better than getting cancer or other auto immune disorders.
