what you should do
There were no reported illnesses or injuries when this new recall was announced. However, Lily’s Sweets advises people with severe soy allergies not to consume the dessert filling.
Even if you don’t have a soy allergy, you should still consider not using the dessert filling in the booster. This is because other people in your household, friends or guests may be allergic to soy. They could develop a severe reaction after consuming desserts made with this Lily’s Sweets filling.
The long shelf life of products like these toppings increases the risk of accidental consumption in the future. You could overlook the current Lily’s Sweets recall if you don’t act immediately.
Like any food allergy, a soy allergy can be fatal for people with a severe allergy to the ingredient. You should consult a doctor if you suspect any adverse reactions from consuming Lily’s Sweets Peppermint flavored baking chips in the recall.
Customers who purchased the toppings should contact Lily’s Sweets for a full refund. All the information you need to get your refund processed is available in the FDA announcement – see this link.
