The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the recalled Cookies are packaged in clear, hard plastic containers, net wt. 14 oz., with seven or eight cookies per container.

About Milk, Nut, Soy and Wheat Allergies:
For some people, milk (and milk products), nut (and nut products), soy (and soy products) as well as wheat products are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, milk products may not “look” or “sound” as if they are derived from milk. Some examples of foods with milk proteins include artificial butter or cheese flavor; casein or caseinates; curds; ghee; hydrolysates; lactalbumin and lactalbumin phosphate; lactose, lactoglobulin, lactoferrin and lactulose; and finally, rennet (originally, ground calves’ stomach but more often now, by-products of genetically engineered bacteria, mold or yeast).

Groundnuts (such as peanuts) and tree nuts (such as almonds and walnuts) are a source of dangerous, urgent and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to peanuts or other nuts within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

Similarly, many foods have soy-based ingredients including edamame (soybeans in pods), hydrolyzed soy protein, miso, soy protein isolate, soy sauce, tamari, tempeh, teriyaki sauce, textured vegetable protein (“TVP”) and tofu. In addition, lax labeling laws in many countries allow manufacturers to use (but not declare) small amounts of soy in “artificial flavoring”, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, vegetable broth and others. Although levels of these allergens are comparatively small, they may cause dangerous allergic reactions, including Anaphylactic Shock.

For some people, wheat (and wheat products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, wheat products may not “look” or “sound” like wheat. People with a wheat allergy would suspect products such as all breads, cakes, breakfast cereals, pasta, crackers, beer, soy sauce and even condiments, such as ketchup, as having wheat unless specifically declared otherwise.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to milk, nut, soy and/or wheat ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call-9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.

About Listeria Poisoning:
The bacteria that cause Listeriosis (Listeria poisoning) most often produce a gastrointestinal illness that can be quite serious or even fatal. Listeriosis in pregnancy, for example, may cause a miscarriage or fetal death. In other cases, people can develop Septicemia (a serious blood infection) or Meningitis (an inflammation of the covering of the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges).

If you suspect your food is contaminated, do not eat it. Contact the retailer for a refund or replacement. Wash your hands, contaminated preparation surfaces, cutlery and serving dishes thoroughly with hot soapy water and dry. Contact your MD immediately if you experience Listeriosis symptoms.

You can learn about Listeriosis from the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) at http://1.usa.gov/IScAKJ
