Consumers warned about undeclared milk allergens in DaveÕs Muffins

Submitted By CA Department of Public Health

Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and state health officer, warned consumers with milk allergies not to eat DaveÕs Blueberry Muffins and DaveÕs Banana Nut Muffins. People who have milk allergies risk life-threatening reactions.

Bake R Us of Gardena, California, is voluntarily recalling both varieties of muffins because they contain milk that is not declared on the product labels. The recall was initiated after CDPH identified the labeling omission during a routine inspection of the facility. No illnesses have been reported at this time.

DaveÕs Blueberry Muffins and DaveÕs Banana Nut Muffins are individually packaged in clear cellophane with a ribbon banner across the front of the package identifying the muffin flavor.

Consumers that have the recalled products should return them to the place of purchase. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, which requires immediate medical attention.

Consumers can contact Bake R Us at (310) 630-5873 for further information.

Consumers who have experienced an allergic reaction after consuming either of these products should contact their health care provider. Anyone observing the products being offered for sale is encouraged to call CDPHÕs toll free complaint line at (800) 495-3232.
