Biscomerica Corp. is recalling 4 types of berry cookies because they may contain milk that is not listed as an ingredient.
The California-based company is voluntarily recalling cartons of its Knott’s Berry Farm brand Boysenberry Cookies, Blueberry Cookies, Raspberry Cookies and Strawberry Cookies, citing a risk that the products may contain undeclared milk.
The cookies were distributed nationwide between August 01, 2011 and April 05, 2012 and were sold in retail stores and through mail orders. They were distributed to Calgary, BC, American Canyon, CA, Anaheim, CA, Berkeley, CA, City Industry, CA, Commerce, CA, Concord, CA, Corona, CA, Chatsworth, CA, Encino, CA, El Cajon, CA, Irwindale, CA, Long Beach, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Napa, CA, San Jose, CA, San Leandro, CA, San Ysidro, CA, San Diego, CA, South El Monte, CA, Spring Valley, CA, Vernon, CA, Denver, CO, Miami, FL, Hilo, HI, Honolulu, HI, Indianapolis, IN, Grand Rapids, M,I Washington, MD, Gibbstown, NJ, Nassau, NS, Bronx, NY, College Point, NY, Delta, OH, Mountville, PA, North Kingstown, RI, Dallas, TX, Seattle, WA and Green Bay, WI through retail stores.
Each type of cookie was distributed in a case containing 12 cartons (16 oz. each). Inside the cartons are 8 bags at 2 ounces each. Products subject to recall habe an expiration date of April 01, 2012 through December 05, 2012. Dates are located on the back of the bag in the upper left hand corner or on the outside of the carton on a white sticker on the rear of the case.
The four types of cookies can be identified by the following item numbers:
- Boysenberry Cookies: #59680
- Blueberry Cookies: #59675
- Raspberry Cookies: #59670
- Strawberry Cookies: #59695
No illnesses have been reported in connection with these products.
The recall was initiated after an investigation found that Biscomerica had listed whey, a milk product, as an ingredient but had not identified it as “milk,” an allergen that must be declared on packaging.
Production of the berry cookies has been suspended until the problem is corrected.
Consumers who purchased the recalled products listed above can return them to their place of purchase for a full refund. Biscomerica Corp. is available to answer consumer questions at 909-877-5997 Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm PDT.
