In a press release, the Velvet Creme Popcorn Company, in cooperation with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), issued an allergy alert and recall on several of their products due to undeclared milk, soy and wheat allergens. People with severe allergies run the risk of serious allergic reaction if they consume products such as, Velvet Crème Peanut Brittle, Velvet Crème Tail Gate Crunch and Velvet Crème Sweet Cajun Heat. These products do not have any lot codes and were sold prior to December 13, 2011. These products are completely safe for non allergic people to consume and no illnesses have been reported in connection with these products.
As a Seattle personal injury attorney, I’ve seen many similar food safety recalls due to undeclared allergens or mislabeled food products in the past and I understand the difficulties that manufacturers face when attempting to provide quality products to their customers. If you’ve fallen ill after consuming or handling a defective food product, speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area to discuss your legal rights as a consumer.
