LOTTE Confectionery Co., Ltd. (manufacturer), 21-5ka, Yangpyung-dong, Youngdeunpo-gu, Seoul, Korea, is recalling its 1.41 ounce (40g) and 5.64 ounce (160g) packages of Lotte Waffles because they contain undeclared egg ingredients. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

(Product Barcode: 1.41 ounce – 8 801062 518111 / 5.64 ounce – 8 801062 518135)

The recalled Lotte Waffles were distributed to California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Washington, Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois, New Jersey, Maryland, and Canada retail stores.

The product comes in 1.41 ounce and 5.64 ounce paper packaging, with a white ingredient sticker label and an expiration date from July 2014 to Sep. 2015 (the expiration date is printed as Year. Month., and Day).

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the egg-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of eggs by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by an error in the company’s product sticker making process.

The distribution of the product has been suspended until FDA and the company are certain that the problem has been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased 1.41 ounce and 5.64 ounce packages of “Lotte Waffle” are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Lotte International America Corp. (Importer), 1805 Industrial St. Los Angeles, CA 90021, at 1-213-688-8806 Monday thru Friday 8AM-5PM PST.
