A product recall has been issued by Mondelēz for two types of Oreo cookies due to an undeclared dairy ingredient. The company issued the voluntary recall after an allergy risk was discovered. According to Mondelēz, the company is recalling the products out of an abundance of caution. Two types of Oreo Fudge Cremes, original and mint, are being pulled from store shelves for failure to list milk as an ingredient. This will affect cookies sold in the United States, as well as St. Thomas, Puerto Rico, and St. Croix.
According to the FDA, a person with an allergy to milk may have a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if the cookies are consumed. The FDA says one person has had an allergic reaction from eating the cookies. Details of the seriousness of the incident have not been released. The company says that even though milk was left out of the ingredients, a warning that the cookies were processed on shared equipment with milk was listed on each package. Both 11.3 oz packages Oreo Fudge Cremes, Original variety and Mint variety, with particular code dates, have been recalled. For a complete list of affected packages, please visit the company’s website. Anyone with questions can contact the Mondelēz company during regular business hours. Consumers can also return the affected cookies at the place of purchase for a refund.
