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

Classic Marzipan is sold in kraft-colored corrugated containers with red printed decorations including the Figi’s Logo with a code date located in a small yellow box in the lower left-hand corner of that label of “5 190”, “5 194”, “5 253” or “5 328.” The product itself is contained within a gold foil covered paperboard tray with a clear acetate cover.

The package includes Figi’s Special Gift Notice/Product Guarantee that is preprinted on the reverse side with the Nutritional Facts Panel for “Assorted Fruit Shaped Marzipan” and identified with the part number 380-0034-515. The shipping box also contains a promotional coupon for a discount on a future order.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the Marzipan’s packaging, design and retail presentation. An additional image of the recalled foods are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the FDA, this recall was initiated after it was discovered that the almond-containing product was not labeled with ingredients nor were the presence of almonds highlighted. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s Bill of Material verification process.
