BI-LO Recalls Trail Mix

Undisclosed soy ingredient could cause severe allergic reaction for some people.

Mauldin, S.C.-based BI-LO has announced a recall of a store-brand trail mix that was sold with an undisclosed soy product.

The company announced an immediate voluntary recall on Southern Home Cranberry Nut Antioxidant Blend Trail Mix sold in the 16 oz. bag with a universal bar code of 0788003039 and a best-by date of March 12, 2013.  

The product is being recalled in South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee due to a potential, undeclared presence of soy lecithin, which is a processed soy product. 

"The processing reduces the content of allergenic proteins; however, persons with a severe soy allergy may still have serious reactions to the reduced protein found in the soy lecithin," the company said in a release.

So far, the company has received no reports of illness associated with the product. The issue was reported to BI-LO by a customer.

"We encourage consumers in possession of the recalled item to immediately discard the product or bring it back to their local BI-LO," said Allen Reavis, BI-LO's vice president of grocery.  "As part of the company's Satisfaction Guarantee, customers who have purchased the product may visit their neighborhood store to request a full refund."

To receive the refund, individuals must present proof of purchase through a receipt or the product packaging label.

Customers with questions about the recalled product may contact BI-LO's consumer relations department at 1-800-862-9293.
