A Beloved Gluten-Free Brand Has Recalled Two Products Sold Nationwide

Updated: Apr. 18, 2024

The recall of these bagels, sold at Walmart and other major retailers, is a reminder of the intense care that consumers with allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances need to take.

If you eat gluten-free by choice or out of necessity, heads up on a recall that broke late Friday afternoon on two varieties of grocery bagels.

On April 12, 2024, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published an announcement that Feel Good Foods had issued a recall on gluten-free Plain and Everything flavored mini cream cheese-stuffed bagels. The announcement noted that the bagels “may contain undeclared gluten that may be present due to cross-contamination,” adding: “People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to gluten run the risk of serious allergic reaction if they consume these products.”

It’s said both varieties of Gluten-Free Cream Cheese Stuffed Mini Bagels were distributed nationwide through national retailers, and that the recalled products are displayed in the frozen section.

Feel Good Foods bagel recall details, as published by the FDA:

The recalled Cream Cheese Stuffed Plain Mini Bagels with UPC 89903900283 and Cream Cheese Stuffed Everything Mini Bagels with UPC 89903900286 are packaged in cardboard cartons labeled with ‘Feel Good Foods’ on the front panel and the bagel flavor listed below. The recall includes all Best By dates, ranging from 5/29/24 to 9/17/25 which is on the bottom of carton. Please see photos of carton labeling as product may contain two styles of labeling due to package re-design.

It’s reported the recall was issued voluntarily after the company received word that one consumer had experienced an adverse reaction. The FDA quoted Vanessa Phillips, founder of Feel Good Foods: “Once we were made aware of trace amounts of gluten cross-contamination to Feel Good Foods’ Gluten-Free Plain and Everything flavored Cream Cheese Stuffed Mini Bagels, we contacted the FDA and took swift action to voluntarily recall the impacted product.” Phillips continued, “As a founder who is personally affected by celiac disease, ensuring the integrity and safety of our gluten-free products is of the utmost importance. We take the health and safety of our consumers extremely seriously.”
