Company Announcement
Davidís Cookies is recalling 960 units of ďMarketside Chocolate Chip Explosion CakeĒ lot # BS23212 that has been sold in Walmart retail stores across the country.

This recall is due to that the 960 units of ďMarketside Ultimate Peanut Butter Chocolate CakeĒ ware mislabeled with a label as ďMarketside Chocolate Chip Explosion CakeĒ a name that does not depict peanut as a key ingredient and does not declare the peanut allergen warning on the label.

The product is in a 7-ounce, clear plastic package marked with lot # BS23212 on the top of the package. Photo below:

No illnesses or injuries have been reported to date in connection with this mislabel. If there are any consumers with concerns about illness or injury associated with this product, please contact a physician immediately.

Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused at the labeling & packaging stage.

In coordination with Walmart, they have blocked all Marketside Ultimate Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake and Marketside Chocolate Chip Explosion Cake from their distribution centers and store registers, so no consumer is able to purchase either of these products until further investigation and resolutions have been completed by Davidís Cookies and Walmart.

Consumers who have purchased the 7.9 oz Marketside Chocolate Chip Explosion Cake, lot # BS23212, are urged to return them to the location of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Davidís Cookies at 800-500-2800. Business hours are from 8:30 am to 5:00 am, DST Eastern time zone.

The Walmart distribution center distributing the mislabeled product has been identified and Davidís Cookies and Walmart will continue to work to correct the situation and prevent further shipments to stores.
