EAST LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The Michigan State University Dairy Plant is recalling 8 oz and 16 oz packages of chocolate cheese confection because they may contain undeclared peanut and soy allergens.
The Michigan Department of Agriculture announced this recall Wednesday, December 6.
People who have allergies to peanuts and soy could run the risk of severe reactions if they eat this product.
The recalled “Chocolate Cheese Confection” was sold from the MSU dairy store location in Anthony Hall.
The recalled product only encompasses product in a 16 ounce or 8 ounce block with a Julian date of 7321 and a sell-by date of 5/17/18 or 5/20/18. This product was available for sale at the Anthony Hall location of the MSU Dairy Store between the dates of 11/20/17 and 12/4/17. The Julian date and sell-by date codes are located on label containing nutritional information.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that Chocolate Cheese Confection was sold out of the Anthony Hall location of the MSU Dairy Store in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanut and soy and had an incomplete ingredient statement.
Additional investigations concluded a malfunction in label formatting. This has been rectified.
Consumers who have purchased 16 ounce or 8 ounce packages of “Chocolate Cheese Confection” between 11/20/17 and 12/4/17 with a Julian date of 7321 and a sell-by date of 5/17/18 or 5/20/18 are urged to return them to the MSU Dairy Store for a full refund.
