Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the company has revealed that some packages of its Buttercream Frosted Cinnamon Pumpkin Cookies actually contain its Fudge Buttercream Frosted Peanut Butter Cookie, a product that is known to contain peanuts.

About Peanut Allergies:
For some people, groundnuts (such as peanuts) and tree nuts (such as almonds and walnuts) can be 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.

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.
