The error was isolated to one facility and due to air contamination as a result of incorrect production scheduling. Other gluten-free Nature's Path and EnviroKidz products are not impacted and are not part of this voluntary recall. Consumers requesting a refund for the affected cereals should return the product to their retailer. Consumers may also contact Nature's Path Consumer Services at 1-866-880-7284 (between Monday and Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm PST) or email at ConsumerServices@naturespath.com.
"Making healthy, nutritious, organic food is our passion," says Arjan Stephens, Executive VP of Sales & Marketing at Nature's Path. "This failure to meet the gluten-free standard our consumers expect and trust from us is a deep concern. We have reviewed and changed our internal practices to ensure our gluten-free cereals are not impacted in the future."
