Allergen Alert: Cream Puffs With Sodium Caseinate

Creme Curls Bakery of Hudsonville, MI is recalling 19.4 ounce cartons of Simply Enjoy Vanilla cream puffs distributed by Foodhold U.S.A. and 13.2 ounce cartons of Vanilla Cream Puffs distributed by Crème Curls Bakery, because the product contains sodium caseinate, which is listed on the label, but does not identify the source of sodium caseinate as milk.


People who have milk allergies but do not recognize sodium caseinate as a milk derivative run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume the product. The cream puffs are safe for consumption by individuals who do not have a milk allergy.

The recall was initiated following a report of an allergic reaction after a person with a milk allergy ate the cream puffs.

The recalled vanilla cream puffs were distributed nationwide through retail grocery stores.

The recalled vanilla cream puffs, which are sold in the freezer section of grocery stores, are packaged in glossy paperboard in one of the following cartons:

– Simply Enjoy Vanilla Cream Puffs, UPC Code #6-88267-12409-9, located on the  large back panel

– Creme Curls Bakery, UPC Code #0-70109-60055-5 , located on the large back panel

The recall applies to all sell-by dates and all lot codes. No other Crème Curls products are affected by this recall.

Consumers who have a milk allergy are encouraged to return the recalled product to the place of purchase for a full refund. 

For more information contact the company through the Consumer Hot Line 1-800-466-1219, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT.
