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

This voluntary recall was initiated after receiving a report that a small percentage of the tubs in the retail locations were missing the back label.  All of the retails stores have been inspected and any tubs that are missing the back labels have been removed from the shelves.  Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the packaging process. The labeling machine that applied the back label which contains the ingredient statement, nutritional information and allergen listing experienced a mechanical malfunction that went undetected by the operator.
