Reser’s Fine Foods voluntarily recalled ALDI Deli Macaroni Salad because the incorrect label was placed on its container and the label does not disclose a wheat allergen. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) reported the recall on May 17.

As you can see below, the FDA shared an image of the recalled product—it is mislabeled as Coleslaw, but the product is macaroni salad. The recalled product is sold in a 32-ounce container and has a use-by date of June 3, 2024. The macaroni salads were distributed to ALDI locations in AL, CT, FL, GA, LA, MA, MS, NC, NH, NY, RI, SC, TN, VA, and VT.

While no illnesses are connected to the recall. If you have a wheat allergy, you could experience a severe or life-threatening allergic reaction when consuming the recalled product, like anaphylaxis.

Common symptoms of an allergic reaction include hives, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and, in extreme cases, tightness of the throat and cardiac arrest. Call 911 immediately if you experience any of these symptoms after eating the macaroni salad.

What To Do If You Have the Recalled Products at Home
