Recall Update: New information on the recall of Cargill soy flour due to gluten cross contactTricia Thompson
Gluten Free Watchdog has been in contact with Cargill about the recall of millions of pounds of Cargill soy flour. In brief, Cargill provided the following information:
- Out of an abundance of caution, Cargill issued a voluntary recall for Prolia® soy flour and Prosante® textured soy flour products manufactured between October 5, 2022, and March 29, 2023, after receiving limited test results with gluten above 20 ppm.
- The gluten found in the testing was between 20 ppm and 50 ppm.
- Information available to date indicates that the source of the gluten is inadvertent comingle from rye planted as cover crops.
- Only a handful of Cargill customers utilized their soy flour in a product carrying a gluten free claim.
- They are working closely with the FDA and their customers to ensure that product implicated by the recall was destroyed and/or is removed from the market.
- The soy flour is an ingredient that is not sold directly to consumers.
