“It’s incredibly important to ensure that food products are labeled appropriately, especially when they may contain allergens that can threaten our health,” said Consumer Protection Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull, “We hope that consumers will take caution, and return this product quickly. I want to thank Shady Glen Dairy bar for their attention to this matter.”
