Company Announcement

Falafel King of Boulder, Colorado is notifying the public that its containers of Tzatziki Sauce made with sour cream contains milk, a known allergen. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

Falafel King Tzatziki Sauce is distributed to retail stores in certain areas of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Nebraska.

Falafel King Tzatziki Sauce is sold in a 10 ounce plastic container with a black rimmed lid with the UPC #822986-70015-2 and a “Sell By” date printed on the top label. The old label on this product will have a “Sell By” date prior to 03/04/17.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with our product.

This Allergy Alert was initiated to protect the consumers after it was discovered that the Tzatziki Sauce made with sour cream was distributed in packaging that did not declare the presence of milk.

Anyone with questions may contact the Falafel King Corporate office at 303-443-1346 and ask for Amnon Gilady, Owner, Monday-Friday, 9:00a.m.–5:00p.m. MST.
