Recall of Sea Salt Product For Not Listing Milk As Allergen

The San Francisco-based Somersault Snack Co., LLC has recalled some of its Somersaults Pacific Sea Salt (6 oz.) for a packaging mistake.

“Limited quantities of Somersaults Santa Fe Salsa flavored product were inadvertently commingled with Somersaults Pacific Sea Salt flavored product in packages labeled as Somersaults Pacific Sea Salt,” the snack firm said.

“The inadvertent commingling of these two products introduced another allergen (milk) to the Somersaults Pacific Sea Salt (6oz.) packages, and that allergen (milk) is not listed on the packaging as either an ingredient or an allergen.

The sell-by date and UPC number on the product is: MAR1113 G6 / UPC Product Code: 8-98403-00201-7. The Sell By Date is located on the back of the package, in the middle, above the sunflower graphics, and the UPC Product Code is located below the UPC bar code.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of an allergic reaction if they consume the affected product. The product was distributed to retail stores nationwide. No allergic reactions have been reported.

Somersault Snack Co. has taken the precautionary measure of notifying the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is voluntarily recalling approximately 418 cases of the product shown.

Somersault Snack Co. will work with retail customers to ensure that the recalled products are removed from store shelves.

In the event that consumers believe they have purchased products affected by this voluntary recall, they should return the product to the store where it was purchased for a full refund. Consumers or customers with questions may call 415-275-1247 for more information.
