Vermont Common Foods Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Peanuts
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - March 26, 2014 - Vermont Common Foods of North Clarendon, VT operating under the Orton Bros. Brand is recalling one lot of Zesty Lemon Cookie Buttons because they may contain Peanut Butter Cookies. The product label does not declare peanuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Zesty Lemon Cookie Buttons are distributed at Hannaford Supermarkets in New England.
Zesty Lemon Cookie Buttons would have been purchased in the all-natural section of Hannaford Supermarket. The recalled cookies are in a 6 oz. yellow box, UPC code 20104 19100. The lot code and expiration date are stamped on the bottom of the box; LOT14021M with the expiration date of 10-21-14.
No illnesses or issues have been reported to date.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that a portion of one lot of Peanut Butter Cookies was erroneously labeled as Zesty Lemon Cookie Buttons. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's packaging processes which has been corrected.
Consumers who have purchased the recalled lot of Zesty Lemon Cookie Buttons are urged to return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-802-775-4111.
