D.F. Stauffer Biscuit Co., Inc. Issues Allergy Alert and Voluntary Recall on 44 oz. Market Pantry White Fudge Coated Animal Cookies Due to Mislabeling and Undeclared Allergens
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 4, 2013 - D. F. Stauffer Biscuit Co., Inc. is voluntarily recalling several lots of 44 oz. Market Pantry White Fudge Coated Animal Cookies because they may contain undeclared milk and eggs. People with an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk or eggs run the risk of serious or life- threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product. Symptoms may include itching, hives, wheezing, shortness of breath, anaphylaxis, runny nose, watery eyes, vomiting, cramps, or diarrhea. No illnesses have been reported to date.
The recall affects only 44 oz. Market Pantry White Fudge Coated Animal Cookies in bear-shaped jugs with the following with Best By date and Lot Number etched on the back shoulder of the product above the label:
|Lot Number||Best By|
The products are sold in Target stores across the United States. No other lots or products are affected.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the incorrect rear label was applied to the container by the jug manufacturer and the presence of the milk and eggs was not declared. The correct label has UPC 8523981769 with the description ‘Animal Cookies – White Fudge’; the incorrect label has UPC 8523908259 with the description ‘Alphabet & Number Crackers – Chocolate’.
Consumers who have purchased the recalled product are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact D.F. Stauffer Biscuit Co., Inc at 888-480-1988.
