Cherry Butter alert issued due to undeclared milk

A fruit butter known as “Cherry Butter” has been recalled by the manufacturer Rocky Top Farms. These 10 oz. jars of fruit butter were recalled due to the presence of undeclared milk. According to Rocky Top Farms and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the recalled fruit butter was sold in stores and through the company's website.

Sold individually or in multi-packs, the issue stems from the product being packaged incorrectly. It should have been packaged with labels showing the presence of milk, it was unfortunately not. According to the announcement on the FDA’s website, production has been halted by Rocky Top Farms while they and the FDA ensure “the problem has been corrected.”

While the unexpected presence of milk in a product doesn’t seem like a huge deal, an unexpected allergen can be dangerous and even deadly for those with severe dairy allergies. So far, no illnesses have been reported related to this recall. If you’ve purchased the recalled product, you can return it to your retailer for a refund, or contact Rocky Top Farms through their website.
