Hostess Recalls Cookies ‘n Creme Brownies

Packaging did not list eggs in the 'contains' statement

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Hostess Brands Inc. has recalled its Cookies ‘n Creme Brownies due to a labeling issue, according to a notice from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Eggs were not listed in the “contains” statement of the packaging, despite the dairy product being cited as one of the ingredients. The purpose of the “contains” statement is to alert consumers of potential allergens, the FDA said.

Although no reports of injury or illness have been reported, out of an abundance of caution, Hostess Brands has voluntarily recalled the affected product. The FDA advises consumers who have purchased the Cookies n’ Creme Brownies—especially those with a sensitivity or allergy to eggs—to discard the product or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

No other Hostess brownie treats are affected by the recall, the FDA said.

Kansas City, Mo.-based Hostess is a packaged-food company that focuses on developing, manufacturing, marketing, selling and distributing fresh sweet baked goods in the United States. Its products include Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Ho Hos, Donettes, and Hostess Bake Shop and Fruit Pies.
