Allergen Alert: Crullers with Sodium Caseinate

Walmart has recalled its eight-count packages of cruller bakery pastries because the common name of milk was not listed following sodium caseinate, a milk derivative, on the ingredient label.

People who have milk allergies and do not recognize sodium caseinate as a milk derivative run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume it.

One adverse reaction has been reported by a customer, according to Walmart

The recalled eight-count packaged crullers, which are ring-shaped twisted sweet cakes similar to doughnuts, have a UPC code of 787429847 and expiration dates on or before Feb. 9, 2012. The crullers were labeled and sold in Walmart store bakeries in Puerto Rico and all states with the exception of Hawaii, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Walmart says it has taken steps to ensure all current and future products are properly labeled to reflect the common name of milk as an ingredient.

For more information contact the Walmart Customer Service at 1-800-Walmart (1-800-925-6278) or return the product to the nearest Walmart store for a full refund.
