Somersault Snack Co. Issues Allergy Alert on a Limited Number of 1 oz. Packages of Somersault Pacific Sea Salt Distributed Solely to Target Stores in 6-count Multipacks
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - July 3, 2013 - Today, Somersault Snack Co., LLC, in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is voluntarily recalling a limited number of packages of 1 ounce Somersault Pacific Sea Salt products which were distributed to Target Stores in 6-Count Multi-Packs, and which were inadvertently mispackaged—limited quantities of Somersault Santa Fe Salsa flavored product were inadvertently commingled with Somersault Pacific Sea Salt flavored product in packages labeled as Somersault Pacific Sea Salt 1oz. The inadvertent commingling of these two products introduced another allergen (milk) to the Somersault Pacific Sea Salt 1oz. packages, and that allergen (milk) is not listed on the packaging as either an ingredient or an allergen.
All of the affected product was distributed to Target Stores through their distribution centers in California, Ohio, Georgia, Kansas and South Carolina. No affected product was distributed to or received by any other customer of Somersault Snack Co., LLC.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of an allergic reaction if they consume these products. No allergic reactions have been reported.
