March 15, 2002Great Brands of Europe Has Recalled Le
PIM's Soft Biscuits with Fruit Filling
Wilton, CT (SafetyAlerts)
- The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that Great Brands of Europe, Inc. has recalled all three flavors (Orange, Pear
and Raspberry) of its Le PIM’s soft biscuits with fruit filling sold in the
United States, because the products may contain undeclared traces of milk
protein. Only people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk
protein run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if
they consume these products.
These products were distributed nationwide through retail stores.
The products come in cardboard packaging of 150 g (5.29 oz), in three
flavors: Orange, Pear and Raspberry (UPC codes 6-94990-00850-6,
6-94990-00855-1, and 6-94990-08370-1). No other UPC codes are affected by
One allergic reaction to milk protein has been reported.
This voluntary action was initiated after it was discovered that product
containing traces of milk protein was distributed in packaging that did not
reveal the presence of milk.
Great Brands of Europe, Inc. was made aware of the situation after receiving
one consumer complaint.
Consumers who have known food allergies to milk protein should not eat this
product and are urged to return it to the store where it was purchased for a
full refund. These products are safe for consumption by all other consumers.
