Uncle Ben’s Infused Rice Products voluntary recalled

Mars Foodservices U.S. is voluntarily recalling Foodservices Uncle Ben’s® Infused® Rice products, which are only sold in five-pound and 25-pound bags. Uncle Ben’s® Brand Ready to Heat, Boxed, Bag or Cup Products available in supermarkets and other retail outlets are not involved. Foodservices Products are manufactured separately and are sold through wholesale distribution channels.

Mars Foodservices U.S. is conducting this voluntary recall as a result of people experiencing temporary symptoms of mild flushing and rash after eating our Foodservices Infused® Rice Mexican Flavor product. Out of an abundance of caution, we are removing all Foodservices Infused® Rice products from the market.

Uncle Ben’s® Brand Ready to Heat, Boxed, Bag or Cup Products available in supermarkets and other retail outlets are not involved in this voluntary recall and are safe to consume. Our Foodservices Products are manufactured separately and are sold through wholesale distribution channels.

Mars Foodservices U.S. will provide reimbursements or replacement product. Wholesale customers should work with their distributors. For more information or assistance, please contact us toll free at 800-432-2331 (Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. EST) or via e-mail at mfs@usf.mars.com. Mars Foodservices U.S. is continuing to work closely with the FDA to investigate this issue.
