Greenleaf Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Milk in Lemon Bars
Phyllis J. Foley
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Townsend, WA -- April 2, 2007 -- Greenleaf of Port Townsend, Washington is recalling 16 - Lemon Bars, because they may contain undeclared Milk as an ingredient. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to Milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Lemon Bars were distributed solely to one retail store in Port Townsend, Washington for sale to consumers. Product is not packaged and therefore not coded. The Lemon Bars are sold individually at the retail store's counter.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the Milk containing product (butter) did not declare Milk on its ingredient list. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production processes.
Consumers who have purchased Green Leaf Lemon Bars are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Green Leaf at 360-379-0989.
