Archway Cookies LLC Recalls Small Number of Classic Oatmeal Big Batch Homestyle Cookie Packages
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Battle Creek, MI -- November 3, 2006 -- Archway Cookies LLC, a Battle Creek, MI company, is voluntarily recalling approximately 633 packages of only the 13.75oz Classic Oatmeal Big Batch Homestyle Cookies® because a small number of those packages may not indicate the presence of an undeclared allergen (tree nuts, specially walnuts). Some of the cookies subject to recall contain tree nuts (walnuts), but the product labels indicate only that the products may contain traces of peanuts and tree nuts as part of the cookies' ingredient mixture. Persons who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to walnuts run the risk of possible allergic reactions if they consume these cookies.
The cookies subject to recall are Archway Classic Big Batch Homestyle Cookies®. Each package bears the date code "Best Before Jan 11 07 AX." The cookies were packaged on October 19, 2006 and were distributed to retail stores in the eastern half of the United States, specifically in states east of the Mississippi River. The problem was discovered by the company, which has received no reports of illnesses or allergic reactions associated with consumption of these products. Media or others with questions about the recall should contact Ray Hehman of Marketing Partners Communications, Inc at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-421-4141.
