SILVER SPRING, Md. (WTVA) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says an UNCLE BEN’S® product is being recalled because it contains a source of gluten not declared on the product packaging.
Mars Food North America issued the recall as a precaution, because two lot codes of UNCLE BEN’S® READY RICE® Garden Vegetable with Peas, Carrots & Corn pouches were filled with a different product that contains barley, a non-wheat source of gluten.
