These products are being recalled because they contain milk, soy, and wheat that was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk, soy, and wheat.

These products were distributed through retailers from the Greater New Orleans Area including the Northshore to the Greater Baton Rouge Area from January 24, 2008 until February 6, 2008.
