Arnie's Bakery Has Recalled 8 Pack Date Nut Cookies

Grand Rapids MI (SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that Arnie’s Bakery has recalled Arnie’s Brand 8 Pack Date Nut Cookies (Item # 755 - sold at room temperature).

This is the first public notice of this Class I recall issued by the FDA.

The recalled product is distributed by Arnie’s Bakery, 722 Leonard St. N.W., Grand Rapids, Michigan. The product is manufactured by Awrey Bakeries, Inc. 12301 Farmington Road, Livonia, Michigan. The Date nut cookies were distributed in Lower Western Michigan to grocery stores and Arnie’s Bakery outlets.

The product is being recalled because of undeclared nonfat milk. Although the amount of milk in the product is extremely small, people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to dairy products run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The eight pack cookies are packaged on a flat corrugated board wrapped in cellophane.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this product.

The recall was initiated after the manufacturer (Awrey Bakeries) discovered that the ingredient statement on the label did list nonfat milk. Arnie’s Bakery issued a recall because they distribute "Date Nut Cookies" that are manufactured by Awrey’s Bakeries.

Consumers who have purchased any of these cookies are urged to return the Arnie’s Brand Date Nut Cookies to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-616-458-1107. This product is being recalled in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
