Easter bunny cookie kit labeling omits milk allergen


(NEXSTAR) – Just weeks before Easter, Illinois-based Wilton Industries, Inc. is issuing a voluntary recall of its Ready to Build Chocolate Cookie Bunny Hutch kit, which is sold at several major retailers, including Walmart, HEB and the company’s website. .

In an announcement, the company explains that the packaging omits a milk allergen, saying, “The ingredient list on the packaging lists ‘Skim Milk Powder’ as an ingredient, but the ‘Contains’ statement did not include” Milk “as required.”

Wilton says people with severe milk allergies or sensitivities could be at risk of a life-threatening reaction if they consume the product.

The affected Ready-to-Build Chocolate Rabbit Hutch Kit has UPC code 0070896117274. Wilton says the recall affects lot numbers 22005, 22006 and 22007 – these numbers can be found on the side or bottom of the boxes. The company says that to date, no cases of illness have been reported.

Wilton Industries says the “labeling oversight” was discovered after a consumer survey.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says consumers can contact Wilton Industries by emailing [email protected] or calling (800) 794-5866.
