If you’ve purchased Applegate Natural’s Gluten-Free Uncured Beef Corn Dogs recently, you may want to double check the package before eating. 10 oz packages of the dairy-, casein- and sugar-free meals on a stick should be thrown away or returned to the company for a refund if it is stamped with the EST. 2512 code on the box.
The packages that are under recall also have an expiration date of April 21, 2015 and they were sold primarily in Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, New Mexico, and South Dakota.
The main issue with this kid-friendly food is that they may have been stored at unsafe temperatures during delivery when they were moved to a warehouse instead of a freezer facility.
If you were one of the customers affected by the 972 potentially bad boxes and would like to get a refund, simply return the box to the original store of purchase. This batch has been available in stores since April 2014.
As of now corn dogs with a different code and expiration date are considered safe to consume.
This is Applegate Natural’s second recall in two months as they had issues with their Chicken Nuggets in August.
