Michel et Augustin Inc. of Brooklyn, NY, is recalling approximately 900 packages of its Petites baguettes butter cookies Dark Chocolate, 6 packs only, because they may contain undeclared hazelnuts. People who have an allergy to hazelnuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
Michel et Augustin Petites baguettes butter cookies Dark Chocolate were distributed to retail stores throughout New York City.
The product is packaged in a sealed polypropylene film inside a cardboard box (6 cookies per box), NET WT. 1.58 oz., UPC 812668020166, with a Best before date 07 2016 (located on back of the package).
No illnesses or complaints have been reported to date.
The recall was initiated after the firm discovered packages that had visible pieces of nuts on top of the butter cookies. Subsequent investigation by the firm and foreign manufacturer revealed that a small quantity of packages of the milk chocolate and hazelnut recipe were incorrectly packed into Dark chocolate packages, and hazelnuts are not listed on the label.
Consumers who have purchased Michel et Augustin Petites baguettes butter cookies Dark Chocolate, 6 packs, with Best before date 07 2016 and are allergic to hazelnuts should not consume this product. Consumers are urged to return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions should contact the company at 1-646-820-0935, Monday – Friday, 9 am – 6 pm, EDT.
