Tonia's Biscotti II LLC Issues Allergy Alert

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - January 3, 2014 - Tonia’s Biscotti II LLC of Homer, AK is recalling Sampler Bags, Lemon Biscotti dipped in White Chocolate Bags, and individually wrapped biscotti of all flavors because they may contain undeclared wheat, milk, and soy. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat, milk, and/or soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Tonia’s Biscotti Sampler Bags, Lemon Biscotti dipped in White Chocolate Bags, and individually wrapped biscotti of all flavors were distributed at retail stores, craft fairs, and through mail order (via www.toniasbiscotti.com) within the state of Alaska; the last dates of distribution were in December 2013. There was no wholesale or retail delivery of the affected products outside of Alaska.
The bagged products are in white packaging with a clear view window on the front. “Tonia’s Biscotti” is written across the top half and “Lemon dipped in White Chocolate” or “Sampler” is written on the bottom. The only bagged products affected by this recall are missing the “Nutritional Facts” panel; there are no expiration dates, best by dates, or lot codes on the products. The individually wrapped biscotti of all flavors have a single label on the front of the package with the name “Tonia’s Biscotti” and the flavor of the biscotti.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing wheat, milk, and/or soy was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of these allergens.
Consumers who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat, milk, and/or soy products are urged not to consume and return products to the place of purchase for a full refund.
