President Global Corp., in conjunction with the FDA, is recalling its Uni-President Red Bean Flavor Ice Bars and Red Bean Tapioca Flavor Ice Bars because they may contain skim milk that was not on the label of ingredients. If a consumer who is allergic to milk consumes this product he/she may have serious allergic reactions that could result in death.
Each product comes in a box containing 6 bars. UPC code on boxes of Red Bean Flavor Ice Bars is 4 710608 813600. UPC on boxes of Red Bean Tapioca Ice Bars is 4 710088 070968. There are no expiration dates on the products.
So far there has been one illness from the ice bars reported in Canada. The recalled product was sold in Asian Retail Food Markets in Southern California.
The Uni-President Red Bean Flavored Ice Bars and Red Bean Tapioca Ice Bars were recalled when the company realized that products’ label did not mention that they had skim milk or milk protein in the bars. The FDA has suspended distribution of the ice bars until the agency and the Presidential Global Corp. are sure the problem has been remedied.
