JESSUP, Md. — Hearn Kirkwood is issuing a voluntary recall of 5,895 clamshell containers of various croissant sandwiches because its labeling did not identify the following allergens in the product: soy and milk.
People with an allergy or severe sensitivity to these allergens run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. Customers with allergies or sensitivities to soy or milk should discard the product.
The affected sandwiches were distributed from October 20, 2023, and November 3, 2023, in the states of Alabama, Connecticut, Washington, D.C., Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.
To date, no illnesses related to this product have been reported. No other products distributed by Hearn Kirkwood are being recalled. Hearn Kirkwood is working collaboratively with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on this recall.
The recall was initiated after one of the firm’s ingredients suppliers failed to notify them the ingredient formulation had changed. This led to products being sent to customers without properly identifying the allergens of soy and milk.
Hearn Kirkwood takes the safety and integrity of the products it distributes seriously. Hearn Kirkwood regrets any inconvenience and concern this recall may cause. Customers with allergies or sensitivities to soy or milk should discard the product.
