Health Warning: muffins contain undeclared mild allergens

Department of Public Health say muffins being recalled

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - - Consumers with milk allergies are being warned not to eat Dave's Blueberry Muffins and Dave's Banana Nut Muffins. Those partaking could risk life-threatening reactions. 

Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and state health officer, warned consumers not to eat Dave's Blueberry Muffins and Dave's Banana Nut Muffins due to undeclared milk allergens.

Bake R Us of Gardena, California, is voluntarily recalling both varieties of muffins. The recall was initiated after CDPH identified the labeling omission during a routine inspection of the facility. No illnesses have been reported at this time.

Dave's Blueberry Muffins and Dave's Banana Nut Muffins are individually packaged in clear cellophane with a ribbon banner across the front of the package identifying the muffin flavor. Photos of the products are available on the CDPH website on the Bake R Us, Gardena, CA Recalled Product page.

Consumers that have the recalled products should return them to the place of purchase. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, which requires immediate medical attention.

Consumers can contact Bake R Us at (310) 630-5873 for further information.

Consumers who have experienced an allergic reaction after consuming either of these products should contact their health care provider. Anyone observing the products being offered for sale is encouraged to call CDPH's toll free complaint line at (800) 495-3232.
