Everlasting Distributors, Inc. Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Peanuts in Curly Tops

(SafetyAlerts) - Everlasting Distributors, Inc., 15 Pulaski Street, Bayonne, NJ 07002 is recalling 4 oz. boxes of Ricoa Curly Tops Milk Chocolate because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The recalled Ricoa Curly Tops are packaged in a cardboard box with UPC# 480004021116. Curly Tops were sold in New Jersey and New York.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets food inspectors revealed that the peanut-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts on the labels.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

Consumers who are allergic to peanuts and have purchased 4 oz. packages of Ricoa Curly Tops Milk Chocolate are urged to return them to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-888-783-8080.
