Maharashtra-based company Kinjin Food Pvt. Ltd. has issued an allergy alert for its “Asafoetida” Vandevi Yellow powder due to potential undeclared traces of wheat. The recall covers 50 gm, 100 gm, 200 gm, 500 gm, and 1 Kg packages of the product.

Reason for Recall: The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the product was being manufactured at a facility that also processes wheat products. As a result, there is a possibility that the Vandevi Asafoetida Yellow Powder may contain undeclared traces of wheat. The packaging did not mention the presence of wheat traces as required by labelling regulations.
