‘Fruiti Pops’ Popsicles Recalled for Undeclared Eggs

Fruiti Pops, Inc. is recalling 178 dozen Fruiti Pops 4 ounce Classic Coconut frozen dessert bars because they may contain egg yolk.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious and life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

According to a release distributed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration: “Fruiti Pops Classic Coconut frozen dessert bars were distributed in Southern California and are sold by push cart vendors and ice cream trucks. These products were distributed between June 25, 2012 and June 28, 2012. The product comes in clear polypropylene packaging and is not labeled with lot numbers nor expiration dates. The UPC of the recalled product is 763734 000011 and is located on the back of the wrapper.”

The company said no illnesses had been reported to date and noted that no other flavors of their pops or fruit bars are affected by the recall.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered this product was produced with egg yolk and did not reveal the ingredient egg yolk on the packaging.

Consumers who have purchased the product and are allergic or sensitive to egg yolk may return the product to the place of purchase for a refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at (562) 404-2568 or info@fruitipops.com
