Although the ingredient statement clearly indicates egg in the contents, and eggs are identified in the Allergen statement (in bold type) it still poses a potential health hazard. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. Consequently, we are recalling these items from the market. Other products are not involved. The recalled cookies described below, were distributed nationwide to retail stores.
