Consumer Alert: Undeclared Milk in Keikitos (Muffins)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- February 15, 2006 -- State Agriculture Commissioner Patrick H. Brennan today alerted consumers that Marito's Bakery, 521 Union Ave., Westbury, New York 11590 is recalling 8 ounce packages of "Keikitos" (muffins) due to an undeclared milk ingredient. People who have allergies to milk may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.
The recall includes all codes of "Keikitos" (muffins) in 8 ounce plastic bags. It was sold in Long Island, New York, and New Jersey.
The problem was discovered as a result of routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis by the Department's Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of a milk ingredient in product packages which did not declare a milk ingredient on the label.
No illnesses have been reported to date to this Department in connection with the problem.
Consumers who have purchased "Keikitos" (muffins) should return it to the place of purchase.
