ELEGANT GOURMET of WOODINVILLE, WA ISSUES NATIONWIDE ALLERGY ALERT ON UNDECLARED EGG WHITES in SWEET WILLIAMS HAND DECORATED GINGERBREAD BOY COOKIE and ELEGANT SWEETS CANDY CANE COLLECTION HAND DECORATED GINGERBREAD BOY COOKIE

Elegant Gourmet Inc. of Woodinville, WA is recalling all packages all codes, of Sweet Williams Hand Decorated Gingerbread Boy Cookie and Elegant Sweets Candy Cane Collection Hand Decorated Gingerbread Boy Cookie net wt 3 oz (84 g) because they contain undeclared egg whites. People who have allergies or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled Gingerbread Boy cookies were distributed nationwide in retail stores and through mail orders.

The Gingerbread Boy cookies are packaged in clear shrink-wrap then packed in a clear cello bag and closed by a twist tie bow. All codes are being recalled.

One complaint involving two children has been reported.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the egg-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg. Subsequent investigation indicates the label failed to declare egg whites as a sub ingredient of meringue.

This is a seasonal product and is currently not being produced. New labels will be made for future production.

Consumers who have purchased Gingerbread Boy cookies are urged to return them to Elegant Gourmet for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-425-814-2500.


This product may have been distributed in your area. Please spot-check stores for effectiveness of the recall. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact this office at 317/233-7360.
