FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - December 10, 2012 - Mister Snacks, Inc. of Amherst, New York, is recalling its 5 oz. packages of Sunbird Snacks Yogurt Raisins because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
This recall is limited to 161 cases containing twelve Sunbird Snacks 5 oz. Yogurt Raisin packages. The product comes in a 5 oz. clear bag marked with a Lot Number and Expiration Date of "EXP 0513 265" ink-stamped on the back of the package.
The product was distributed nationwide in retail stores.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the peanut-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes.
Consumers who have purchased 5 oz. packages of Sunbird Snacks Yogurt Raisins are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at 800-333-6393.
