Walmart has recalled packages of cruller bakery pastries because the word “milk” was not listed following the words “sodium caseinate,” a milk derivative, on the ingredient label. People who have milk allergies and do not recognize sodium caseinate as a milk derivative run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume it, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. One adverse reaction has been reported by a customer, according to Walmart.
All stores affected by the recall have been notified to remove and discard the mislabeled products. Corrective action has been taken to ensure all current and future products are properly labeled to reflect the common name of milk as an ingredient. Customers with questions about this recall may call the Walmart Customer Service at 1-800-Walmart (1-800-925-6278) or return the product to their nearest store for a full refund.
The eight-count packaged bakery items affected by this recall have a UPC code of 787429847 which can be found on the box label. The items affected by this recall have expiration dates of on or before Feb. 9, 2012. The pastries can be recognized as a ring-shaped twisted sweet cake similar to a doughnut. The products were labeled and sold in Walmart store bakeries in Puerto Rico and all US states with the exception of Hawaii, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. For more information, contact the Walmart Customer Service at 1-800-Walmart (1-800-925-6278) or return the product to the nearest Walmart store for a full refund.
