Announcement

Shirley’s Cookie Company Inc. of Claysburg, PA, is recalling its 16 ounce packages of "Chocolate Whoopie Pie" because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled "Chocolate Whoopie Pie" were distributed to Weis Markets Headquarters (Address Below) on September 14, 2018. The affected 55 cases/660 units of "Chocolate Whoopie Pie" has a batch code of 227256 and freezer sell by 9/1/19.
Weis Market Headquarters
1000 S 2ND Street
Sunbury, Pa 17801
The product comes in a 16 ounce, clear plastic package marked with a wrap around Weis Label with a UPC of 4149710692.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the peanut-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes.
Production of the product has been suspended until FDA and the company are certain that the problem has been corrected.
Consumers who have purchased 16 ounce packages of "Chocolate Whoopie Pie" are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 814-239-2208, Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm EST.
