CORAL GABLES, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A., Inc., (“Del Monte Fresh”) is initiating a
voluntary recall of “Fresco Fresh” brand parfait yogurt cups because
they may contain undeclared almonds. People who have an allergy or
severe sensitivity to tree nuts run the risk of serious or
life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled products were distributed to a limited number of customers
in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. These items had the
Fresco Fresh label and contained vanilla or strawberry parfait yogurt
over fresh fruit in the bottom with a separate granola insert at the top
of the cup. The granola component contained almonds. The absence of the
required allergen statement on the product label was discovered during a
routine retained-sample inspection.

No allergic reactions or illnesses have been reported to date.

There are three Parfait yogurt fruit cup types: Strawberry yogurt with
fresh bananas, Vanilla yogurt with fresh blueberry/ strawberry blend and
Vanilla yogurt with fresh strawberries. The products had “Best if
Enjoyed By” dates between October 11 – 20, 2015 and were distributed
between October 3 – 12, 2015.
