According to recent reports from the FDA, a series of products manufactured and distributed by Velvet Crème Popcorn Co. is being recalled.
The news sources covering the recall announcement show that people seriously allergic to soy, milk or wheat could be exposed to a serious threat by consuming Velvet Crème Popcorn. The company stated that the undeclared allergens are present in most of their products without having the ingredients listed in their labels.
The popcorn packages that are being recalled for unlisted allergens are:
- Velvet Crème Peanut Brittle, 4 oz. cellophane bags (contains milk)
- Velvet Crème Tail Gate Crunch, 1 lb. and 8 oz. cellophane bags (contains soy and wheat)
- Velvet Crème Sweet Cajun Heat, 1 lb. and 8 oz. cellophane bags (contains soy and wheat)
Lot numbers or individual codes are not available. Consumers are advised to make sure they are not allergic to soy, milk or wheat before consuming the recalled products. The company is working close to the FDA so all products are removed from the store shelves but some consumers may still have the recalled items in their homes.
As a Fresno personal injury lawyer I hold the health of my blog’s readers as a priority. Consumers with friends or family members who are allergic to nuts should be especially careful, make sure to return the products to the place of purchase right away.
Personal injury lawyers urge consumers to contact the company right away since the allergen risks serious or life-threatening reactions.
