Waterbury Cupcake Recall Affects All of Connecticut
You have enough to worry about every day without worrying about your sweet treats.
Since one of the locations involved in this new recall is in our state, here's a heads up.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration ( FDA ) just made this announcement.
Cherry Valley Marketplace, West Hempstead, NY, is recalling its 12-ounce packages of CHERRY VALLEY VANILLA CUPCAKES and CHERRY VALLEY CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES because they may contain undeclared milk allergens. Consumers who are allergic to milk allergens may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.
There is a Cherry Valley Marketplace located in Waterbury, Connecticut. According to the FDA release, the recalled 12-ounce packages of CHERRY VALLEY VANILLA CUPCAKES and CHERRY VALLEY CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES, were distributed in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey. The products come in 12 ounces, clear plastic package marked with barcode # 00004961147 and # 00004961130, with an expiration date of 09/20/2017 and 09/30/17, stamped on the top.
No illnesses or allergic reactions involving this product have been reported to date. But the recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and then analysis by Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of undeclared milk allergens in the 12-ounce packages of CHERRY VALLEY VANILLA CUPCAKES which did not declare a milk ingredient on the label.
Here's what to do if you've purchased the 12 ounce package of either the vanilla or chocolate cupcakes listed above. You should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. If you have any questions you can call the company at 516-292-2090.
