Murray Biscuit Company is recalling 904 cases of 5.5-ounce packages of Murray Sugar Free Chocolate Chip cookies shipped to retail customers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee because the packages actually contain Murray Sugar Free Chocolate Chip Pecan cookies and the label does not list pecans as an ingredient.
No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported. The company was notified of the error by a customer who is not allergic to nuts.
The package is an overwrapped tray and is printed with a warning: “MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS AND TREE NUTS.” People who have allergies to pecans run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions and should not eat these cookies.
While only 12 cases of the product are incorrectly labeled, Murray is voluntarily recalling 904 cases shipped to its Alabama distribution center from one shift of production as a precautionary measure.
The recalled product is marked with a UPC code of 82011 91335 and a best-if-used-by date of APR1712 EA6.
