Lotte Margaret Brand Korean Crackers recalled due to potential allergic reactions
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a recall for Lotte Margaret Brand Korean Crackers due to a potential containment of undeclared milk, peanut, and egg allergens.
The 19 gram packages of the Korean Crackers, manufactured by Wang Globalnet of Brooklyn, New York, are being recalled. The potential allergen content in the crackers could affect consumers with allergies to eggs, peanuts, and milk, and could lead to potentially life-threatening allergic reactions if consumed.
The recalled Korean Crackers, which are distributed at stores nationwide, do not state on the label that the products may contain milk, peanuts, or eggs. The crackers come in a cardboard box marked with the item number 00438 and weigh 19 grams. A code date of ?08.08.06.B2? is stamped on the box.
The New York State Department of Agriculture found that traces of undeclared egg were present in the recalled Korean Crackers, and that undeclared milk powder and sliced peanuts were used as ingredients.
The FDA urges consumers who purchased Lotte Margaret Brand Korean Crackers to return them to the place where they were purchased for a full refund. Wang Globalnet can also be contacted at 1-718-821-5252.
