Kinnikinnick has determined that an ingredient used in the production of these products contained MILK allergens that were not listed by the manufacturer of that ingredient and may be present in these finished products. MILK is not declared on the packaging of these 5 Kinnikinnick products. Routine testing by Kinnikinnick discovered this MILK contamination in a specific lot of an ingredient which was certified by the manufacturer to contain no MILK allergens. The distributor of this ingredient in Canada, Burnbrae Farms, has currently recalled 4 lots of this ingredient and several additional lots are under investigation.

We are voluntarily recalling all products produced prior to late December 2013, when formulations were changed to eliminate this ingredient.

Consuming these products may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction in persons with allergies to MILK. Consumers who are allergic to MILK should dispose of or return the product to point of sale for a refund.

A complete list of affected Best Before dates is found below.

Best before dates are embossed on the top flap of the box, applied with an ink jet printer on the side or as an applied label to the bottom of the box.

The products are distributed across Canada and the United States in retail stores and through direct shipments.

Consumers WITHOUT allergies to MILK may continue to consume these products.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with this recall.
