Wilton Brand Sprinkles Recall Details
Hold the sprinkles! A voluntary recall has been issued on a popular cake decorating brands sprinkles.
Wilton Industries has issued a voluntary recall on two of their varieties of sprinkles due to allergen concerns. Milk allergies are the concern, and there is a little but of confusion regarding this particular recall. That's because according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, even though "the product label does indicate that it may contain milk, this recall is being conducted because some samples of the product were found to contain milk". While the products don't usually contain milk, the labeling is set up to reflect that it may be detected due to manufacturing processes; in this case - these products have been found to actually include traces of milk. Under an abundance of caution, the recall was issued.
Here are the details about the two varieties of Wilton sprinkles being recalled:
- Wilton Rainbow Chip Crunch Sprinkles (710-5364). The voluntary recall impacts lots 20294Z, 20314Z, 20345Z, 21013Z, and 21022Z.
- Wilton Rainbow Sprinkles Mix (710-0-0627). The voluntary recall impacts lots 21005Z and 21111Z.
