    Schenectady — Price Chopper Supermarkets is issuing a voluntary recall on Gourmet Stuffed Clams from its seafood departments with a scale code of 20918100000. This product is being recalled due to the fact that it contains milk, wheat and eggs, which are known allergens and are not listed on the store-generated ingredient label. According to the press release from the supermarket’s headquarters, “other than this labeling issue, the product is safe for consumption for those not allergic to the known allergens.” The stuffed clams were sold chain wide in Price Chopper seafood departments between Oct. 1 and Dec. 23. The label has been updated to correctly reflect all of the ingredients contained in the product. In addition to alerting the media, Price Chopper has initiated its Smart Reply notification program, which uses purchase data and consumer phone numbers on file in connection with the company’s AdvantEdge (loyalty) card to alert those households that may have purchased the product in question. Customers can return the product to their local Price Chopper for a full refund.
