Consumer Alert
Undeclared Milk in Sweet Biscuits

State Agriculture Commissioner Nathan L. Rudgers alerted consumers today that Kashmir Crown Baking, LLC of 710 West Linden Ave., Linden, New Jersey 07036 is recalling "KCB NAN KHATIE Sweet Biscuits" due to an undeclared milk allergen. People who have allergies to milk may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The recalled "KCB NAN KHATIE Sweet Biscuits" with UPC number 12042 00133, come in a 7-ounce or 14-ounce plastic package. The manufacturer is voluntarily recalling the product which was sold in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut areas.

The problem was discovered as a result of routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis by the Department's Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of a milk allergen in product packages which did not declare a milk ingredient on the label.

No illnesses have been reported to date to this Department in connection with this problem.

Consumers who have purchased "KCB NAN KHATIE Sweet Biscuits" should return them to the place of purchase.
