Lion Pavilion Ltd Issues Allergy Alert On Undeclared Milk In Wangshi High Food Series Brand Nourishment Oatmeal

LION PAVILION LTD. of 541 Gardner Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11222 is recalling Wangshi High Food Series Nourishment Oatmeal because it contains an undeclared milk ingredient.

The recalled Wangshi High Food Series Nourishment Oatmeal is sold in an uncoded, 600 gram, aluminum sealed package. It was distributed nationwide. It is a product of China.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis by Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of undeclared milk allergens in Wangshi High Series Nourishment Oatmeal in packages which did not declare milk as an ingredient on the label.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem. Consumers who have purchased Wangshi High Food Series Nourishment Oatmeal are urged to return it to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 718-384-6951.
