Important Note*

Because of the scope and nature of this recall report, Safety Alerts determined that additional information may be necessary.  We spoke with a representative of the Food and Drug Administration. They informed us that this recall is classified as a "Class 3" recall. Below is the definition of this class of recall as per the FDA:

"Class III recalls are for products that are unlikely to cause any adverse health reaction, but that violate FDA regulations. An example might be bottles of aspirin that contains 90 tablets instead of the 100 stated on the label. "

A member of the regulatory board that was part of the review of this recall stated that only minor levels of the solution were found in the product and there was no evidence at all that this would present any health risk to the consumer.

The representative from the FDA did not know if this product had reached the consumer level or not. There is no indication given on this enforcement report, however, the company has stated on this report that the "firm estimates none remains on the market."

For additional information about this recall or what to do with any recalled products Safety Alerts recommends that consumers contact Nabisco directly.  Nabisco can be reached via email, using a form provided on their website at http://www.nabisco.com . Click on the "Mailbox" link in the left margin and then on consumers with questions link, or consumers can call Nabisco at 1-800-8NABNET Monday through Friday between the hours of 10am - 5pm EST.
