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

Roger Dickhout
CEO Liberté Brand Products

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – St.Hubert Quebec,Canada - August 12, 2009 - Liberté Brand Products, St Hubert, Quebec, Canada announced that it is recalling all Liberté Méditerranée Wild Blackberry Yogourt 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.

Liberté Méditerranée Wild Blackberry yogourt was distributed nationwide. The product is packaged in a 6oz retail plastic container with the expiry code date of September 02 printed on the foil lid. The UPC Bar code is 0 65684 65434 5.

Liberte initiated the recall on August 11th 2009, when the company received an email from a consumer that found that containers labelled as Liberté Wild Blackberry yogourt 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.
