Somersault Snack Co. Cinnamon Crunch voluntarily recalled
due to undeclared allergen
 
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment today announced a voluntary recall by Somersault Snack Co., LLC, of Sausalito, Calif., affecting all packages of Somersault Cinnamon Crunch products with “sell by” dates of Aug. 30, 2013, or earlier. The packaging of these products fails to declare milk, which is contained in a flavoring ingredient but is not listed as a product ingredient/allergen.
Although there have been no reported cases of illness at this time, Somersault Snack Co. is taking this precautionary step. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. 
Approximately 37,000 cases of the product were distributed to retail stores nationwide. Distribution of the product to the following retail stores in Colorado has been confirmed: Safeway, the Vitamin Shoppe, Whole Foods Market, Cost Plus World Market, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Caribou Coffee, Albertsons, Vitamin Cottage/Natural Grocers and 24 Hour Fitness.
Somersault Snack Co. will work with retail customers to ensure the recalled products are removed from store shelves. In the event consumers believe they have purchased products affected by this voluntary recall, they should return the products to the store where they were purchased for a full refund. Consumers with questions may call 415-407-9172 for more information.
