 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - May 30, 2012 - Cheryl’s of Westerville, Ohio is recalling 10,588 individually wrapped 1.6 oz. Buttercream Frosted Cinnamon Pumpkin Cookies because the wrapper on these affected cookies may not specifically state that the cookie contains Peanuts, a known allergen. Our investigation revealed that some of the packages of our Buttercream Frosted Cinnamon Pumpkin Cookies actually contained our Fudge Buttercream Frosted Peanut Butter Cookie. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. Please note however that the wrappers of all of the 1.6 oz. Buttercream Frosted Cinnamon Pumpkin Cookies do contain the following allergen statement: “Produced in a plant that also handles Peanuts and Treenuts”. The 1.6 oz. Buttercream Frosted Cinnamon Pumpkin Cookies were sold at Cheryl’s retail stores located in Columbus and Dayton, Ohio and nationwide via Cheryl’s website located at
www.cheryls.com during the months of April and May, 2013. The Cheryl’s 1.6 oz. Buttercream Frosted Cinnamon Pumpkin Cookies look like this:
 
Cheryls Cookies Front Label 1 Cheryls Cookies Front Label 2
 

Cheryls Cookies Back Label 1 Cheryls Cookies Back Label 2

and contain Lot No.: 88 13 1 on the packaging wrapper.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

This recall was initiated after it was discovered that the affected cookies were distributed in packaging that did not specifically reveal that the ingredients of the cookies contained Peanuts. Our investigation revealed that some of the packages of our Buttercream Frosted Cinnamon Pumpkin Cookies actually contained our Fudge Buttercream Frosted Peanut Butter Cookie.

Consumers who have purchased Cheryl’s 1.6 oz. Buttercream Frosted Cinnamon Pumpkin Cookies are urged to dispose of the affected products and contact Cheryl’s for a full refund and a complimentary $20 “Saving Pass” for use with qualified future purchases from Cheryl’s.
