Grand Carnival L.L.C Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Milk in its "S’morestick Kit"
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- April 16, 2008 -- Grand Carnival L.L.C. of Fenton, MO, is voluntarily recalling "S'morestick Kits" because chocolate pieces contained within the S'morestick Kit contain milk which is not declared on the product's ingredient statement. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a potentially serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume chocolate products containing milk.
The recalled "S'morestick Kits" were in limited distribution to Garden Ridge retail stores located in TX, KY, MO, TN, OK, NC, FL, SC, GA, IL, OH, VA, AR, MI, and IN, and bear the "Use By" date of "2/14/09".
The "S'morestick Kit" is packaged in a clear plastic tube containing individual clear plastic packages of marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate pieces. S'morestick Kits subject to this recall do NOT have a "contains milk" statement following the ingredient statement affixed to the clear plastic tube. There is no health risk for consumers who are not allergic to milk.
There is one reported allergic reaction attributed to this product.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that early shipments of S'morestick Kits were distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk. The Company is in the process of revising its labeling to declare milk as an ingredient in the product.
Concerned consumers who have purchased a S'morestick Kit lacking the "contains milk" statement on the product's label are urged to contact Grand Carnival L.L.C. at 877-305-3382 for a full refund.
