Recalls End May 2018

Throughout May we were lulled into a feeling of safety with our chocolate for much of May 2018 but no, there has been a warning from the FDA that I need to share with you all.

---------- Chocolate Related Recalls -----------

Note: This first recall looks like it might have cocoa or chocolate but I couldn't find an ingredient list to confirm. I'd rather error in bringing a non-chocolate recall to your attention that to not bring one to you at all.

Melanie Mini Cookies with Caramel Flavor
Melanie Wholesale Inc. of Brooklyn, NY is recalling its 17.6 oz (500g) package of “Melanie Mini Cookies with Caramel Flavor”, because they contain undeclared peanuts.  People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled “Melanie Mini Cookies with Caramel Flavor” were distributed nationwide in retail stores.  The product comes in a 17.6 oz (500g) clear plastic package with an expiration date (all dates).  The product UPC 4770049082126.

No illnesses or allergic reactions involving this product have been reported to date.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis by Food Laboratory personnel revealed that the peanut –containing product was distributed in packages that did not reveal the presence of peanuts.

Consumers who have purchased 17.6 oz (500g) package of “Melanie Mini Cookies with Caramel Flavor” are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with the questions may contact the company at 1-718-492-8492 Attention Sergey Trotsky.

New Seasons Allergy Alert on Mini Butter Croissants and Mini Chocolate Croissants

In addition, mini chocolate croissants are recalled because they contain undeclared soy lecithin.

Both varieties of mini croissants were distributed in Oregon and Washington to New Seasons Market stores for retail in the Bakery department.

The mini croissants were packaged in a clear plastic clam-shell container, and labeled as shown in the photos below. The packages were sold from display tables in the Bakery department.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that products containing egg were distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg. Products were slightly sprayed with egg before baking. 

There have been no reports of illness to date.

New Seasons is urging customers with any egg health concerns or allergies to return or dispose of the recalled mini croissants for a full refund. Receipts are not required for the return.
