Olivio Premium Spread 1-lb. tubs distributed without an ingredient statement

(SafetyAlerts) - A limited amount of Olivio Premium Spread, 1-lb. tubs, is being recalled voluntarily because the product may be missing an ingredient statement, which could pose a problem for people who are allergic to whey, one of the ingredients. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to whey run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The situation has been fully investigated and corrected. No related illnesses have been reported to date. No other Olivio spread products are included in this voluntary recall.

The products being recalled may not have an ingredient statement, and are dated with the following codes, which can be found on the lid in black ink: Mar0604F, Mar1304F, Mar1404F, Mar1904F.

This mailing has been funded by Unilever Bestfoods, co-packer of Olivio to be sure you are aware of the situation.

Consumers who are allergic to dairy products, including whey, who have purchased the product carrying the codes listed above should discard it, and then call Unilever Bestfoods' 24-hour, toll-free Hot Line, at 1-800-457-7086, for a full refund, or return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Olivio has notified its distributors and retail customers.
