Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary W. Black alerts consumers to the recall of some cookies because they contain peanuts without listing them on the carton.
Keebler® is recalling a limited quantity of 8-count cartons of Fudge Shoppe® Jumbo Fudge Sticks sold at convenience stores. This recall was initiated because the cartons contain individually wrapped Jumbo Peanut Butter Sticks. While the individually wrapped cookie sticks are correctly labeled, the cartons are not.
People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they eat one of these cookie sticks.
Approximately 17,000 8-count cartons of the recalled product were distributed to brokers and convenience stores in the U.S. They are marked with UPC Code 3010053332 and a lot code of AS 07 27 1A.
Consumers with questions or who would like a replacement may contact the Keebler Consumer Response Center at 888-746-3679 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time, or visit www.keebler.com.
