Dairy State Foods Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Macadamia Nuts in Packages of Minnie's Bake Shop Chocolate Chunk Cookies
L. J. Rabin
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Milwaukee, WI -- October 12, 2007 -- Dairy State Foods is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of 7 oz. Minnie's Bake Shop Chocolate Chunk Cookies. These cookies may contain undeclared macadamia nuts. People who have an allergy to macadamia nuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. The products in the recall do not declare macadamia nuts in the ingredient statement. Minnie's Bake Shop White Chocolate Chunk Macadamia Cookies were packed in Minnie's Bake Shop Chocolate Chunk packaging with the package code date of Best if used by March 2008.
Product Information: Minnie's' Bake Shop Chocolate Chunk Cookies 7 oz. (UPC 400136148117) with Minnie's Bake Shop White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies in the package.
Manufacturing Code: Best if used by March 2008
No other Minnie's Bake Shop Products or date codes were involved.
No allergic reactions have been reported.
This product was distributed in stores in the state of Florida only from Sept.18-Oct. 2, 2007.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the macadamia nut containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of macadamia nuts. An allergy warning was on the box, stating that it was manufactured on shared equipment with peanuts or/ or tree nuts. Subsequent investigation indicates that the problem was caused by a temporary break down in the packaging process. The problem has been corrected, and current production runs are accurately labeled.
Consumers who have purchased the above Minnie's Bake Shop Chocolate Chunk Cookies should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact L. J. Rabin at 1-800-435-4499.
