San Clemente, CA – Project 7 is 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.
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.”
To date, no illnesses have been reported.
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.
