Mexicantown Wholesale of Detroit, Michigan is recalling all lots of cuernos (croissants) manufactured between 6/27/2010 and 12/28/2010, because they may contain undeclared milk.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. The recalled cuernos also contain undeclared wheat and FD&C yellow, which can elicit moderate reactions in sensitive individuals.

Cuernos are sold in clear plastic bags of three or four. Packages are marked as Cuernos Plain (croissant) with plain labeling or Mexicantown labeling, and the UPC code 95640 00035. Cuernos packages are distributed only in Michigan through retail stores.

Consumers should check their packages of cuernos to determine whether the manufacture date is between 6/27/2010 and 12/28/2010. The date is marked on a colored label and is coded as follows: a six digit number with the first two digits representing the year, the second two digits representing the month, and the final two digits representing the date.

No allergic reactions or illnesses have been reported to date.
