The voluntary recall was initiated after one reported illness. It was discovered that the milk-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not declare the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by an oversight in the labeling process.

Consumers with recalled product should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Eillien's Candies, Inc. at 920-336-7549 between the hours of 8am- 4pm. Monday thru Friday, central time.
