Creole and Company, LLC Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Milk, Soy, and Wheat in Creole Bisque
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - June 5, 2013 - Creole & Company, LLC of New Orleans, LA, is recalling its 3.47 oz ounce package of Creole Bisque because it contains milk, soy, and wheat and was distributed without the ingredient statement which declares its presence.

The recalled packages of Creole Bisque were distributed in Louisiana in retail stores.
The product comes in a 3.47 oz ounce, clear plastic package with UPC 8117766014869.
