Liberté Yogurt Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Walnuts and Plums in Its Méditerranée Wild Blackberry Yogourt 6oz Product

August 13, 2009

Liberté Brand Products  announced that it is recalling all Liberté Méditerranée Wild Blackberry Yogurt 6 oz code dated Sept 02 distributed in the USA because it may contain undeclared walnuts and plums. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to walnuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product.

The products being recalled are:
Liberté Méditérannée Wild Blackberry Yogurt - 6oz [Lot Code: Exp date 9-02-09 / SEP02 ONLY]
Liberté Méditérannée Plum & Walnut Yogurt - 6oz [Lot Code: Exp date 9-02-09 / SEP02 ONLY]

Liberte initiated the recall on August 11th 2009, when the company received an email from a consumer that found that containers labeled as Liberté Wild Blackberry yogurt actually contained the Liberté Méditerranée Plum and Walnut fruit preparation. Notwithstanding our internal quality safeguards, the Plum and Walnut filling was inadvertently put into the Wild Blackberry containers for some subset of this production run. The company has notified its distributors and retailers where the product was distributed and has asked that the products be removed from the shelves. To date no illnesses have been reported from this product.
