(SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that NY State Agriculture Commissioner Nathan L. Rudgers has warned consumers to avoid eating "Besitos De Coco (Macaroons) Capellan" due to an undeclared milk protein, an allergen to milk sensitive consumers.

The product is packaged in a 7.5 oz. (213g) plastic tray with UPC number 7 25793 10002 6. "Besitos De Coco (Macaroons) Capellan" was distributed to retail stores in New York and New Jersey. It was manufactured by Siboney Bakery, Inc., 5009 Grand Avenue, North Bergen, New Jersey 07047.

Routine sampling by food inspectors for the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets revealed the product contained milk protein, an allergen to milk sensitive consumers, which was not declared on the label.

Undeclared milk products can cause deadly reactions in individuals with sensitivity to them.

Consumers that have "Besitos De Coco (Macaroon) Capellan" should not consume the product but return it to the place of purchase.
