Popsicles Recalled Over Undeclared Milk Allergen
Unilever United States, Inc. has announced an immediate voluntary recall for some 24-count boxes of Popsicle brand Sugar Free Orange, Cherry and Grape flavored products. The boxes may contain other products made by the company that contain milk, which the boxes do not declare, according to news sources.
The other products that were mistakenly placed in the boxes are the Popsicle brand Sugar Free Healthy Bunch Fudgsicles or Creamsicles. Those with milk allergies or sensitivities may have a life-threatening reaction to these products.
The Fudgesicle and Creamsicle products can be identified by their individual wrapping, which is labeled with their respective names. The unit code on the box with the recalled products in it is 7756702295, and contains date codes of OCT0312GCD, OCT0412GCD, OCT0512GCD, OCT0612GCD and OCT0712GCD.
The ice pops were made in the U.S. and sold in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin.
No illnesses have been reported. Those who purchased the product have been asked not to consume it. Contact the company to arrange for a free replacement.
