Better BatterFROM NAOMI of BETTER BATTER:

To My Customers:

Recently we were advised by our contract manufacturer that they had discovered that one of our suppliers was including a dairy ingredient in one of the components (sunflower oil) used in our pancake and cake mixes.

As you can imagine for a dairy intolerant family like mine, this was extremely disturbing.

We value your health and safety highly, and my commitment to never feed anyone something I cannot feed my own child is absolute.

Any amount of cross contamination with dairy - no matter how small - is unacceptable to us and, therefore I am authorizing a nationwide product recall of all mixes of yellow cake, chocolate cake and our biscuit and pancake mix.

We urge all dairy sensitive customers to contact us immediately to arrange for a full refund and return of your products.  Please use the forms provided to fill out and return all affected products.

I would like you to know what we are doing to solve the problem:

1) We are making these three types of products temporarily unavailable on the market.

2) We are issuing an immediate recall of all units sold of these three types of products.

3) We are reformulating these products in order to ensure a consistently safe supplier of any oil we will use.

As always our flour, seasoned flour, and brownie mix are safe for dairy sensitive individuals.

As a mom in a casein free family, I'm walking this path with you, and I thank all of you for your continued support as we move forward. You have my assurance that these products will only become available again when they meet my stringent standards for safety for your family as well as mine.

Thanks, Naomi Poe
