The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the product containing sesame was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of sesame. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a human error during the packing process.

The distribution of the product has been ceased until the company is certain that the problem has been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased the product are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
