A Charleston-based popsicle company has issued a recall of some of its frozen treats because they are mislabeled.
King of Pops Inc. is recalling mislabeled banana pudding pops and key lime pie pops because they might contain milk, wheat, egg and/or soy, some of which aren't declared on the list of ingredients.
People who have allergies or severe sensitivity to those foods run the risk of severe or life-threatening reactions if they eat the pops.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The ice pops were sold at retail outlets in the Charleston area. The UPC codes are 59959 00305 and 59959 00304. All known mislabeled products have already been removed from stores, the company said in a written statement.
King of Pops said it's working to correct the issue with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the S.C. Dept. of Agriculture and the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control.
The labeling problem was discovered during a routine inspection by the Agriculture Department.
