On Friday, Continental Mills issued the same recall for two-pound boxes of Kroger Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix with UPC number 01111088219, lot codes of KX2063 and KX2064 and best by dates of 09/01/2023 and 09/02/2023.

The Kroger recall was limited to Kroger stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia, according to Continental Mills.

In both recalls, there have been no reports of injuries and no reports by consumers of finding contaminated products. 

The FDA said on its website that "Food producers recall their products from the marketplace when the products are mislabeled or when the food may present a health hazard to consumers because the food is contaminated or has caused a foodborne illness outbreak."

Continental Mills is based in Tukwila, Wash.
