The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection Food, Standards and Product Safety Division is urging Connecticut residents to check their freezers for Durante Pasta Inc., Potato Gnocchi due to the product being recalled.
According to a news release from the state Department of Consumer Protection, West Haven-based Durante Pasta Inc. voluntarily recalled potato gnocchi that might contain milk, which is not stated on the label.

Seagull, the Consumer Protection Commissioner, said in a statement. "We hope that consumers will take caution and return this product quickly if they have a milk or sulfite allergy, and we thank Durante Pasta for cooperating with the recall."
