The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Popcorn are subject to this recall:

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the FDA, distribution of the affected product is limited to product distributed through foodservice and retail in the following states: IA, MN, MO, NE, SD, and WI.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that White Cheddar Popcorn, a product containing milk, was distributed in packaging for a different product, Original White Popcorn, that did not reveal the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s production and packaging processes.
