SACRAMENTO 

Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and state health officer, warned consumers with soy and or wheat allergies not to eat Maxi Foods Flour Tortillas, 24-count, manufactured by Diana’s Mexican Food Products. People who have soy or wheat allergies risk life-threatening reactions.

Diana’s Mexican Food Products of Norwalk, California, is voluntarily recalling the Maxi Foods Flour Tortillas, 24-count, because they contain soy and wheat that is not declared on the product labels. The recall was initiated after CDPH identified the labeling omission during a routine inspection of the facility. No illnesses have been reported at this time.

Maxi Foods Flour Tortillas, 24-count, are packaged in clear plastic bags with red lettering on yellow and green background panels, with an image of a cartoon character wearing a black hat.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy or wheat run the risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, which requires immediate medical attention.

Consumers that have experienced an allergic reaction after consuming this product should contact their health care provider. Anyone observing the product being offered for sale is encouraged to call CDPH’s toll-free complaint line at (800) 495-3232.
