Milk, a known allergen, is undeclared on these boxes. Persons who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the Sugar Free Healthy Bunch® Fudgsicle® or Creamsicle® ice pops.
The affected boxes may contain Fudgsicle® and Creamsicle® ice pops that are individually wrapped with the “Fudgsicle®” and “Creamsicle®” logos. This limited voluntary recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
