Hail Merry recalls Meyer Lemon Mini Miracle Tarts over labeling error

Published 24 May 2017

A labeling error has forced plant-based snack food company Hail Merry to voluntarily recall its Meyer Lemon Mini Miracle Tarts Party Pack of 6 from the retail shelves.

The products contain cashews as listed on the "Ingredients" label, however the "Contains" allergen warning statement does not specifically identify "cashews." People who have an allergy to cashews run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they do not read both the "Ingredients" label and the "Contains" statement and then consume the products.

The recalled Meyer Lemon Mini Miracle Tarts Party Packs of 6 have been distributed nationwide in retail stores. The recall was immediately initiated by Hail Merry after receiving a consumer complaint and identifying the labeling error. No other Hail Merry products are affected by this recall.

Hail Merry Meyer Lemon Mini Miracle Tarts Party Pack of 6 can be identified by a bright yellow sleeve reading “Meyer Lemon Mini Miracle Tarts” and wrapped around a black tray containing 6 miniature lemon tarts. Net weight is listed as 4.65oz on the front of the sleeve, and the UPC code 816247010876 on the back.

Hail Merry has ceased distribution of the affected inventory as of May 19, 2017. New packaging with a modified “Contains” allergen warning statement has already been created, and the product will again be placed in distribution in the next few weeks.

Consumers who have purchased Hail Merry Meyer Lemon Mini Miracle Tarts Party Pack of 6 are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
