Stew Leonard’s Recalls Popular Cookies After Tragic Peanut Allergy Death
According to abc News, Stew Leonard’s grocery chain has expanded a recall of its vanilla Florentine cookies sold in Danbury and Newington, Connecticut, from November 6th to December 31st, 2023. The cookies were initially recalled for mislabeled peanuts but now include both vanilla and chocolate flavors due to the presence of undeclared eggs.
Potential Health Risk and Investigation:
Authorities are investigating the labeling errors and a potential link to a reported death associated with the product. Consumers with a nut or egg allergy are urged to immediately dispose of the cookies or return them to Stew Leonard’s for a full refund.
- The cookies were produced by Cookies United, a wholesaler, and sold under the Stew Leonard’s brand name.
- Approximately 500 packages were sold during the holiday season.
- An investigation is underway to determine if other products or stores were affected.
