PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is notifying consumers that Lily Bloom’s Kitchen of Fridley, Minnesota, has issued an allergy alert for undeclared allergens in five flavors of Poparoons, a macaroon-type confection. The label did not declare milk as an ingredient.
State officials are not aware of any illnesses associated with these products, but people who have a sensitivity to milk should be aware of the inclusion of milk in the flavored coating of these products.
