Firm Press Release
Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A., Inc., ("Del Monte Fresh") is initiating a voluntary recall of "Fresco Fresh" brand parfait yogurt cups because they may contain undeclared almonds. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to tree nuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled products were distributed to a limited number of customers in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. These items had the Fresco Fresh label and contained vanilla or strawberry parfait yogurt over fresh fruit in the bottom with a separate granola insert at the top of the cup. The granola component contained almonds. The absence of the required allergen statement on the product label was discovered during a routine retained-sample inspection.
No allergic reactions or illnesses have been reported to date.
There are three Parfait yogurt fruit cup types: Strawberry yogurt with fresh bananas, Vanilla yogurt with fresh blueberry/ strawberry blend and Vanilla yogurt with fresh strawberries. The products had "Best if Enjoyed By" dates between October 11 - 20, 2015 and were distributed between October 3 - 12, 2015.
