Undeclared Egg Prompts Recall of Hannaford Mini Frosted Cookies
I have another recall of a food item to report to you, yet again because of the potential for the items to negatively affect those who suffer from a particular kind of allergy.
Yesterday, Hannaford Supermarkets, a company based out of Scarborough, Maine, recalled their Mini Frosted Cookies because it was found that the product contained some egg, and this allergen was not listed as one of the the ingredients on the container. The mislabeled product could be harmful to consumers because it could expose people with an egg allergy to a potential adverse reaction that could be serious and even life threatening if it gets out of hand.
Anyone who finds that this item is in their possession and worries that they might be in danger is being advised to return the cookies to the Hannaford grocer from which it was bought. Such persons will be issued a complete refund.
The recall affects only those versions of the product which came in a 10 ounce package. These items carried a UPC of 4126872374. The cookies available at various Hannaford Stores in New England. The company operates retail locations in New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, and Maine, so the products were likely sold across each of those states. No other products are considered to be affected by this safety defect at this time.
