Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix Recalled Mysteriously

Here’s something sort of weird. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is saying that two products, “Aunt Jemima Complete Pancake Mix” and “Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Complete Pancake Mix” have been “recalled and are under investigation for a possible health risk, according to a press release given out by Dierbergs grocery stores.”

Attempts by Consumerist to locate this press release failed, as it seems to have been taken off the store’s website. Pepsico, parent company of Quaker Oats, also had no information about the recall. Same with the FDA. So what’s up with the pancake mix?

Quaker Oats Company said they could not yet say exactly what is wrong with the mixes.

“We are currrently working with regulators on what we can say,” spokeswoman Candace Mueller said this afternoon.

Schnucks said Quaker Oats said only that, “there is a potential health risk associated” with the recalled products.

How very mysterious! Customers in need of more information (that would be all of you, actually) can contact the Quaker Oats Company directly at 1-800-407-2247.

Do let us know what you learn.
