International Multifoods Has Recalled Pillsbury Chocolate Chip Muffin Mix

(SafetyAlerts) - International Multifoods Corp. has recalled 753 cases (18,072 pouches) of 8.2 oz. Pillsbury Chocolate Chip muffin mix with a production code of D2S15A1, because the lot may contain chocolate chips produced with milk that was not listed on the packages' ingredient label. People who are allergic or highly sensitive to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported. The product is not harmful to consumers who do not have an allergy to milk.

The only affected packages were manufactured on April 15 and have a production code of D2S15A1 located on the back of the pouch. No other code date, flavor or variety of Pillsbury muffin mix is impacted.

The product was distributed through retail stores in Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont and Wisconsin.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that chocolate chips containing milk were included in the mix and that the package did not reveal the presence of the milk on the label.

Consumers who have a known allergy to milk and have purchased Pillsbury Chocolate Chip muffin mix with a production code of D2S15A1 should not consume the product and should contact the company at 1-800-767-4466 for replacement.
