For Immediate Release
October 7, 2016
Brooklyn, NY - Le Petit Belge, LLC is voluntarily recalling 480 cases of Belgian Boys Mini Pancakes, Lot 20432, because it may contain undeclared milk. People who have an allergy to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The affected lot of BELGIAN BOYS MINI PANCAKES was sold from June 2016 through the end of September 2016 to distributors located in Texas, Maryland, California, Illinois, and Canada for further distribution to retail stores.
BELGIAN BOYS MINI PANCAKES are packaged in a 10.6 oz./300 g box with UPC 857290005204, Lot 20432 (located on lower front box panel), and Best Before Jul 07 2017 code (located on the bottom flap). There are 12 boxes packed in a case. The products were manufactured and imported from The Netherlands.
One illness has been reported to date in Canada.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing milk was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes. The company and foreign manufacturer continue its investigation into the cause of the problem.
Consumers who have purchased Belgian Boys Mini Pancakes that are allergic to milk are urged no to consume it and to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-631-393-3621, Monday - Friday, 9 am - 4 pm, ET.
