FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Seattle, WA -- January 30, 2007 -- United States Bakery, Seattle Division is voluntarily recalling all 12 ounce packages of Betsy Ross Brand Chocolate Donuts and Old Fashioned Donuts, because the whey listed on the label does not declare it is a derivative of milk.

The recalled Old Fashioned Donuts and Chocolate Donuts are sold in convenience stores in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Wyoming.
