Mislabeled Marzipan prompts Recall

Posted on January 28, 2016 by


Figi’s Companies, Inc. of Marshfield, WI is recalling 8 ounce packages of “Classic Marzipan” because the ingredients are not properly labeled and the product contains undeclared almonds.

The recalled “Classic Marzipan” was distributed nationwide through mail orders and at one retail outlet.

The product comes in a kraft colored corrugated container with red printed decorations including the Figi’s Logo. It is labeled with a white and red product label in the upper right hand corner that identifies the item as 100-0034-200 “Classic Marzipan” and has a code date in a smaller yellow box in the lower left hand corner of that label. The code date will read either “5 190”, “5 194”, “5 253” or “5 328.” The product itself is contained within a gold foil covered paperboard tray with a clear acetate cover. The package includes Figi’s Special Gift Notice/Product Guarantee that is preprinted on the reverse side with the Nutritional Facts Panel for “Assorted Fruit Shaped Marzipan” and identified with the part number 380-0034-515. The shipping container also contains a promotional coupon for a discount on a future order.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

Production of the product has been suspended until the company is certain that the problem has been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased or received as gifts, 8 oz. packages of Classic Marzipan are urged to return them to Figi’s for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company Monday – Saturday, 7AM – 5:30PM CST at 1-800-437-3817.
