CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The Food and Drug Administration has issued a two-year recall on a notable South Carolina BBQ sauce. 

Piggie Park Enterprises Inc. is recalling Maurice’s Southern Gold Honey Sauce manufactured between March 11, 2016 and March 11, 2018.

The FDA says the product included undeclared wheat and soy, which may cause deadly reactions for those who are allergic. It was distributed nationwide and also sold through retail in South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina. 

It comes in an 18oz, clear plastic bottle with an expiration date before 3/12/18 with the expiration date on the bottom of the bottle. The bottles have a UPC of 0 75616 54332 6.

The recall began Tuesday after it was found the powdered honey in the sauce contains wheat and soy, and it was not properly disclosed on the ingredients labels.

Consumers who have purchased the sauce are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a refund.  Consumers with questions can call 1-800-628-4273.

Maurice's father, Joe Bessinger, began the Piggie Park company in 1939 when he opened his own BBQ joint in Holly Hill, according to the company's website. Maurice's Piggie Park later opened in West Columbia. 

The Bessinger family also has a number of restaurants throughout South Carolina.
