US baker Flowers Foods has issued a recall of its Mrs Freshley's multipack cereal bars because the products may contain undeclared non-fat dry milk.

The products are labelled in English and French and include Mrs Freshley's Canadian Label Apple Cinnamon Fruit and Pastry Cereal Bars, Mrs Freshley's Canadian Label Blueberry Fruit and Pastry Cereal Bars and Mrs Freshley's Canadian Label Strawberry Fruit and Pastry Cereal Bars.

The company announced the recall yesterday (4 October) as consumers with allergies to dairy products run the risk of having an allergic reaction.

The recall was initiated after Flowers discovered that product containing non-fat dry milk was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk, and that product labelled for sale and distribution in Canada was sold for distribution in the US.

No illnesses have been reported to date, the company said.

Customers who purchased the dual-language labelled Mrs Freshley's cereal bars are advised to return them to the place of purchase.
