A company that ships to specialty grocers nationwide is issuing a recall of its caramel popcorn because it contains butter, a milk product that wasn't declared on the packaging and can cause severe reactions in people who are allergic or have sensitivities to the ingredient.
Ohio-based KellBran Candies said it is recalling KellBran Caramel Popcorn, which was distributed through various retail specialty grocery stores in New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.
The undeclared allergen was discovered during an inspection by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. No illnesses or reactions have been reported to date.
The product is packaged in 8 oz. bags with expiration dates of 11/30/2015 and 12/31/2015.
Consumers with questions or concerns should contact the company direct at (330) 628-3900 Monday through Friday 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. EST.
