Café Valley Inc. Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared (Walnuts) In 12ct Banana Nut Mini Muffins Labeled as 12ct Lemon Poppy Seed Mini Muffins
For Immediate Release
September 26, 2016
Café Valley Inc.
Café Valley of Marion, Indiana is recalling 543 cases of Banana nut mini muffins labeled as Lemon poppy seed mini muffins, because they may contain undeclared walnuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to walnuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Product was distributed to wholesale distributors in Kansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Missouri, Ohio, Massachusetts, Vermont, Alabama, and Illinois.
The product is Café Valley Brand 12ct Banana Nut mini muffins, with a Lemon Poppy Seed mini muffin label. Date code 160803 ink jet printed on top near the label.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing walnuts was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of walnuts, as it was misbranded with a lemon poppy seed label. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a partial roll of the previous run of product labels, which was inserted into the production of the banana nut production run.
Consumers who have purchased the Café Valley Mini Muffins are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company customer service Monday through Friday from 7:30am-4:30pm, phone: 623-866-7383.
