Michel et Augustin Inc. of Brooklyn, NY, is recalling approximately 900 packages of Petites Baguettes Butter Cookies Dark Chocolate, 6 packs only, because they may contain undeclared hazelnuts. People who have an allergy to hazelnuts should nit eat these cookies as they run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they do.
The recalled cookies were distributed to retail stores throughout New York City. They were packaged in a sealed polypropylene film inside a cardboard box (6 cookies per box), with NET WT. 1.58 oz., UPC 812668020166 and a “Best before date” of 07 2016 (located on back of the package).
At the time of the recall, there had been no illnesses or complaints reported. The recall was initiated after the firm discovered packages of cookies with visible pieces of nuts. Further investigation revealed that a small quantity of packages of the milk chocolate and hazelnut recipe were incorrectly packed into Dark chocolate packages which do not list hazelnuts on the label.
