You may need to check your candy drawer, especially if someone in your family has some food allergies.
A company called Bee International, Inc. of Chula Vista, California is recalling 2 ounce packages of "Sweet Spots" because they may contain undeclared egg protein. For people with allergies to eggs, that can spark dangerous allergic reactions.
The Food and Drug Administration received a complaint when a child in North Carolina had a reaction to the candy. Tests confirmed the presence of egg protein in some of the products. The recall was started after an investigation revealed a problem in the production and packaging process lead to the distribution of some candies that contained the allergens, without a warning on the label.
The recalled "Sweet Spots" were distributed nationwide in retail stores and through food distributors. The product comes in a 2 ounce clear plastic package marked with lot code 2158613 on the back and bearing the UPC 0-73563-00471-6. It is a candy item consisting of small drops of candy on a backing paper that are peeled off and consumed.
Consumers should check their "Sweet Spots" for those numbers and can return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.
If you have questions, you can contact the company at 1-800-421-6465, Monday-Friday from 7:30am-4:00pm, PST.
