Pretzels, Inc. out of Indiana is voluntarily recalling packages of Corn Pops due to an undeclared milk ingredient, which can pose serious health risks for people with a milk intolerance.

Pretzels, Inc. of Bluffton, Indiana is recalling its 8 ounce packages of Better Made brand Corn Pops because they may contain undeclared milk. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled Corn Pops were distributed to retail stores in Michigan and Ohio.

The product is packaged under the Better Made® brand Corn Pops label with an expiration code of MAR1411. The UPC code on the package is 041633-003716.

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

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the milk-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown of the company’s production and packaging processes.

Consumers who have purchased 8 ounce packages of Better Made Corn Pops are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Pretzels, Inc. at 1- 800-456-4838 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
