Packaging Error Leads to Multiple Snack Recalls

Improper labeling and a breakdown in production processes are being blamed.


Century Snacks and Better Made Snack Foods have both announced recalls focused on their use of milk, which is not declared on either product's packaging. Commerce, California-based Century Snacks is recalling all 3-ounce and 5.75-ounce packages of its Snak Club Honey Bliss Nut Mix due to undeclared milk, which is considered a possible allergen.  

The recall was initiated after the company realized the labeling omission. The product was distributed to retail stores in 29 states under the Snak Club brand.

Similarly, Detroit, Michigan-based Better Made Snack Foods is recalling 10-ounce packages of its Original Potato Chips because they may contain undeclared milk. These products were distributed nationwide to retail stores and through mail orders.

This recall was initiated after a package labeled as Original Potato Chips actually contained Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips, which contain milk. The issue is being blamed on a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes.

No illnesses have been associated with either recalled product.
