Frito-Lay has issued a voluntary recall of two of their cookie products. This recall is nationwide. The recalled products are Grandma’s Peanut Butter Sandwich Creme Cookies, and Grandma’s Peanut Butter Mini Sandwich Creme Cookies. Both contain undeclared milk and egg.

Milk and egg allergies can have life threatening symptoms, which could include anaphylaxis. Those individuals with milk and/or egg allergies could be at risk for serious allergic reactions from the consumption of the recalled products.

The discovery of the lack of allergen labeling came from analysis of the artificial butter flavor ingredient. The butter flavor contains both milk and egg, but that was not included on the label.

The Grandma’s Peanut Butter Sandwich Creme Cookies are sold in 3.025 ounce packages, with a sell-by date of March 12, 2013 or earlier. The UPC code is 28400-00153. The Grandma’s Peanut Butter Mini Sandwich Creme Cookies are sold in 1.71 ounce packages, with a sell-by date of May 21, 2013 or earlier. The UPC code is 28400-00901.

Customers who have purchased the product can return them for a full refund at the place of purchase. Customers with questions or concerns can contact the Frito-Lay Customer Relations at 1-877-650-3479.
