Labeling Error: Dairy Wafers Labeled Parve


A consumer alert has been released for French Vanilla Black & White Wafers in 400-gram (4 times 100 grams packaging), barcode 7290008749343. A small number of packages with a “best used by” date of June 1, 2018 (1.6.2018) are certified by the Badatz Eida Chareidis as being parve but they contain dairy. The cream contains milk.

The outer package of the four inner packages is marked correctly, “dairy”, however the individual four 100-gram packages were erroneously marked “parve” on a small number of packages.

The allergen warning does say “may contain traces of milk” and those allergic to milk should not use the product. Strauss asks consumers who have such a package to place phone 1-800-777-777 during chol hamoed.
