Allergy Alert: Swissrose International Recalls Certain Bauer Butterkase Semi-Soft Cheese

Moonachie, NJ (SafetyAlerts) - Swissrose International, Inc. is voluntarily recalling some Bauer Butterkase semi-soft cheese, a product manufactured in Germany and distributed nationwide in the United States, because the ``egg white lysozyme'' was not specified in the food ingredient list. On the ingredient lists, the word ``enzymes'' was used rather than specifically stating ``egg white lysozymes,'' which are enzymes derived from eggs. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. Other than to egg-sensitive consumers, the product being recalled is safe for consumption.

The product was sold in random weight chunks between 7 and 9 ounces in deli cases at retail stores. The recall only affects packages whose label does not state ``egg white lysozymes'' on the ingredient list. Starting on June 26, 2001, these products were removed from the shelf and relabeled. However, if you purchased this product before the relabeling was done, the ingredient list will be in error.

Consumers may return affected product to the store where purchased for a full refund. For further information, call 1-800-257-5594.
