Baker recalls doughnuts, Nutty Crunch

Rise N Roll ordered to recall doughnuts and Nutty Crunch because labeling didn't include potential allergens.

Middlebury-based Rise N Roll Bakery recalled all of its doughnut varieties and cinnamon caramel doughnut holes Jan. 17 because they contained egg that was not listed on the label.

The company also recalled 8-ounce packages of Specialties Nutty Crunch because they contained peanuts that aren’t listed on labels.

Consumers who are allergic to eggs and peanuts could become ill from eating the products.

The products were produced on or before Jan. 13 and were sold at the Rise N Roll retail store and distributed to retail stores in Northern Indiana and other states.

Orvin Bontrager, operations manager at Rise N Roll, attributed the doughnut recall to a “breakdown in the labeling procedure.” He said eggs were added as an ingredient within the past year — he said he didn’t know exactly when — and a routine U.S. Food and Drug Administration inspection found that egg was not listed on the labeling.

“That next day they were properly labeled,” Bontrager said. “No complaints, no sickness, no nothing.”

Bontrager noted that since the company uses no preservatives, its products last only two to three days, so they were already expired by the time Rise N Roll announced the recall.

Regarding the Specialities Nutty Crunch, Bontrager said it has always contained peanuts but the company recently switched bag suppliers and the new supplier failed to list the peanuts. Nutty Crunch will no longer be produced with peanuts, the company said in a statement.

Bontrager said the Nutty Crunch recall only affected products sold in two Indiana stores, in Berne and Munster. It was distributed to retail stores in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Virginia.

Consumers with questions may call the company at 574-825-4032 weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
