Boston Cookies Recalls Nantucket Brownies - Chocolate Fudge Brownie - 3 oz.

Somerville, MA (SafetyAlerts) - Boston Cookies is voluntarily recalling 26 cases (12 x 3oz.) of its Nantucket Brownie, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, because the product may contain undeclared walnuts.

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

Chocolate Fudge Brownie was distributed in ME, NH, MA, RI, CT, NY, NJ, PA, DC, MD through retail natural food stores. No illness has been reported to date.

Nantucket Brownie, Chocolate Fudge Brownies are sold in a 3oz. cellophane wrap individual servings. Walnuts are visible through packaging. The UPC code for the product being recalled is: 0-95155-06001-6.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing walnuts was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of walnuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes.
