RECALL: House-Autry Cornbread & Biscuit Mixes

Posted December 23, 2016

House-Autry Mills, Inc. has recalled some of their Cornbread Mix, Buttermilk Biscuit Mix, and Cheese Biscuit Mix in 8 oz boxes due to possible Salmonella contamination.

The milk powder used in the products comes from a third-party ingredient supplier and may be contaminated.

See the statement below from the FDA and head to FDA.gov for additional details.

House-Autry Statement

Four Oaks, NC - House-Autry Mills, Inc. is voluntarily recalling limited quantities of House- Autry Buttermilk Cornbread Mix, House-Autry Buttermilk Biscuit Mix, and House-Autry Cheese Biscuit Mix as a precaution because one of the company’s third-party ingredient suppliers, Franklin Farms, had purchased milk powder from Valley Milk Products, Inc. This milk powder is potentially contaminated with Salmonella.

Salmonella is one of the most common causes of food poisoning in the United States. This organism can elicit serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly, and immunocompromised individuals. Healthy person infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare cases, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (e.g., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. Salmonella is killed by cooking and pasteurization.

FDA inspections found that quantities of Valley Milk Products’ bulk milk powder contained Salmonella. According to Franklin Farms, testing has proved that no pathogenic bacteria have been found in the powdered milk product supplied to House-Autry Mills, and in addition, when consumers follow the preparation instructions, there is no risk because the heat kills potential salmonella. However, it is out of an abundance of caution the company has decided to recall products produced from the specific lot received from that ingredient supplier.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to discontinue use and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company by calling 1-800-849-0802, 8am-5pm EST daily, or by emailing Retail@House-Autry.com.
