Company Announcement

Coborn's, Inc. of St. Cloud, Minn. is recalling packages of its Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Bars, some of which were incorrectly labeled as Gluten Free Fudge Brownies. The Gluten Free Fudge Brownie label does not indicate the product contains milk, however the Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Bars that are incorrectly labeled as Gluten Free Fudge Brownies do contain milk. People who have allergies to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
 
The recalled products were distributed and sold at Coborn's and Cash Wise stores in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota, as well as Marketplace Foods stores in Wisconsin, and Coborn's Delivers in the Twin Cities Metro area. An internal review found a limited number of packages were sold. These products were sold between July 4, 2017 and July 6, 2017 and list an expiration date of July 10, 2017. Products with an expiration date of July 10, 2017 are the only products affected. The UPC is 7-33147-20522-8. Guests who are allergic to milk should destroy this product or return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund.
 
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
 
The recall was initiated July 6 after it was discovered the Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Brownies were incorrectly labeled with a Gluten Free Brownie label. The problem has since been corrected and all packages going forward will contain the correct label.
