Tres Hermanos Bakery, which is based in Wyoming, Michigan, has announced that it is recalling (and issuing an allergy alert for) the company’s white Telera and Bolillo Mexican salt breads because they may contain milk ingredients that are not declared on the breads’ labels.

Tres Hermanos Bakery recalls due to a hidden milk ingredient.

In a press statement released through the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development the company says that the problem was only discovered after inspectors with the agency realized that one of the breads’ ingredients was whey. Whey is, of course, a milk derivative. The fear here is that people who have allergies to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled breads were sold from the Tres Hermanos Bakery itself and from retail stores in these counties:

  • Allegan
  • Ingham
  • Kalamazoo
  • Kent
  • Muskegon
  • Oceana
  • VanBuren

The breads are packaged in clear plastic bags with white labels. Package sizes include 1-pound and 2-pound bags. The products’ expiration dates run from November 20, 2018 to December 19, 2018.

Tres Hermanos says it has received no reports of any actual illnesses blamed on the whey ingredient.

If you bought any of the recalled breads you are urged to return them to your place of purchase. You will be given a full refund. And if you need more information, you can speak to a customer representative by calling (616) 329-7170.
