Little Debbie Mini Nutty Buddy Cookie Bites Recall Details
The McKee Foods corporation has issued a voluntary recall of one of their popular snack items. According to details released by the United States Food and Drug Administration, a variety of cases of Little Debbie Mini Nutty Buddy Cookie Bites Sandwich Cookies is being recalled due to an allergen concern.
At issue is the concern that some of these products may contain undeclared pecans, which poses a problem to people with allergies and severe sensitivities. People who have an allergy to pecans run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume these products. At the present time, no serious illnesses have been reported.
McKee Foods started the recall effort after they discovered pecans in the product, when the labeling does not include the fact that there are tree nuts as an ingredient. An internal investigation determined the source of the problem: a "temporary breakdown in the production processes of the contract manufacturer that makes and packages the product for McKee Foods".
Little Debbie Mini Nutty Buddy Mini Cookie Bites Sandwich Cookies are sold in retail stores in individual bags with a product weight of 2.6 ounces. The only products covered by this voluntary recall notice have best-by dates of December 24 and December 25, 2021.
The McKee Foods corporation has made it clear that this voluntary recall does not impact any of their other products - including Little Debbie Nutty Biddy Wafer Bars or any other Little Debbie products.
Consumers who have the recalled food products in their possession are urged not to consume them. The cookies can be return the product to the store they were purchased from. Additional questions and concerns should be directed to the company: 1-800-422-4499.
