Nestle recalls fudge kits

Press Release 

ATLANTA - Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin is alerting consumers to the recall of a Nestlé product due to incomplete labeling.

Nestlé USA, Solon, Ohio, is recalling select Nestlé® CARNATION® Famous Fudge Kits because the containers of some of the kits were distributed without a complete allergen precautionary statement warning consumers that the product contains peanuts.

The Fudge Kits were distributed during the 2009 holiday season with day codes beginning with 9225 through 9259 and a "Best By" date of June/July 2010. The UPC codes for the affected products are 50000-62251 for the retail version and 50000-62248 for the club store version.

Those who are allergic to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

Consumers who are allergic to peanuts and have purchased the recalled product should contact Nestlé Consumer Services directly at (800) 727-6300 for instructions. The Fudge Kits should not be returned to retailers.

Those with questions should contact Nestlé Consumer Services or visit the company's web site at
