Consumer:
877-777-3033

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – June 22, 2015 – San Clemente, CA – Project 7 is voluntarily recalling all lots distributed of Sour Caramel Apple Gum from August 20th, 2014 to June 11th, 2015 because the caramel flavoring ingredient in the gum contains a small amount of dairy, an allergen that is not declared on the packaging. People who have an allergy to milk run the risk of experiencing a serious or life-threatening reaction if they consume the product. Project 7 is taking these proactive precautions as part of its commitment to the well-being of its consumer base, who have for years supported the philanthropic brand.

Sour Caramel Apple Gum is sold nationally, in limited distribution, in various retailers and online. The product comes in a 0.53 oz. white and green film pouch package with the image of a caramel apple on a stick on the front of it. Each pouch contains 12 pieces of chewing gum.

Printed upon the front of the package are the words "Sour Caramel Apple," "Gourmet Gum," and "Sugar Free." On the rear panel, among other details, are the words, "Distributed by Project 7, Inc.," and UPC code "844911 002919."

The recall was initiated by a product packaging review that determined the label did not reveal the presence of milk after an ingredient inventory exercise.

To date, no illnesses have been reported. While this is a loss for Project 7, the company is taking all and any necessary steps to protect their consumers from any potential harm, in accordance with its mission to remain a fun brand that does good in the world.

There are no other Project 7 products sold under the Project 7 trademark that are, to the company's knowledge, affected or suffer from this error. The company will be revising the label of the product before re-introducing it into the market.

Consumers who have purchased packages of Sour Caramel Apple Gum sold at various retailers or online and have an allergy to milk are urged to discard the product or return it to Project 7. They may also return it to the store they purchased it from for a full refund.

For more information, consumers with questions may contact Project 7 Customer Relations at 877-777-3033, Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Pacific Time.

"For the time being, we recommend disposing of any of the affected wet cat varieties.

Email: austin@maxwellpr.com

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — June 3, 2015 — ELMWOOD PARK, NJ. — Dr. Praeger’s Sensible Foods is recalling 950 retail cases of the Gluten Free California Veggie Burger because it may contain undeclared soy. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.   Dr. Praeger’s Gluten Free California Veggie Burger has contained soybeans since its introduction in 2007 and is safe for consumption by those who do not have soy allergies.

The recalled products were distributed to select distributors in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington, with further distribution to retail stores in nearby states.

The product is distinguishable as the California Veggie Burger with a red Gluten Free banner below the word “burger”. Each box is marked with UPC code 080868000602, lot code F15BC and an expiration date of 5/12/17.

Concern for the safety and satisfaction of its customers is a priority for Dr. Praeger’s. This action is being taken out of an abundance of caution to inform consumers with soy allergies to avoid eating this batch of Gluten Free California Veggie Burgers. This is the only item impacted, and there have been no reports of illness or injury.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the soy containing product was packaged in boxes that did not reveal the presence of soy. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s packaging processes, which has been addressed.

Consumers who have purchased this product with sensitivities to soy are urged to discard or return to the place of purchase for a full refund. For more information, consumers can call Allison Meyer, Director of Marketing, at (201) 703-1300 between Monday and Friday from 8:00AM - 5:00PM US EST.
