Products contain undeclared margarine with milk and soy

September 27th, 2012 by James Limbach of ConsumerAffairs in News

If you're allergic to milk and soy, you'll want to pay attention to this alert from Hanover Pike Enterprises of Hampstead, MD. 

The company is notifying customers that its 8 ounce and 4 ounce jars of Hot Pepper Jelly and Green Pepper Jelly and its 4 ounce and 9 ounce jars of Blackberry Brandy Jam and Peach Brandy Jam may contain undeclared milk and soy. 

People who have allergies to dairy products may run the risk of allergic reactions if they consume these products. These items were distributed nationwide through retail stores and via the company website under the label "Jill's Jams Mixes and More" or "Jill's Jams and Jellies". No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this situation. 

This notification was initiated after it was discovered that the products containing milk and soy were distributed in packaging that did not list milk or soy as ingredients. The use of milk and soy as ingredients has been discontinued. 

Retail stores who have these products in inventory will be furnished with an additional label indicating these allergens as ingredients. 

Consumers with dairy or soy related allergies, who have purchased these products may return them to their place of purchase or contact the company at 410-239-7433 between the hours of 9-4 weekdays.
