    Nabisco Recalls Some Milk-Chocolate Covered Oreos

    Boxes may contain peanut-butter crème filling.

    Nabisco Foods, a Kraft Foods company, is recalling approximately 838,000 of its 7.5-ounce boxes of Pure Milk Chocolate Covered Oreo Sandwich Cookies with the UPC product code number of 44000 01094 and all "Best When Used By" dates through Nov. 5, 2005 because some boxes may contain cookies with peanut butter creme filling, rather than the vanilla creme filling depicted on the front label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

    The recalled product has been distributed to retail stores nationwide in the United States. The product is packaged in a dark brown box and is prominently labeled Pure Milk Chocolate Covered Oreo Sandwich Cookies. The UPC product code number of 44000 01094 is printed on the back of the box and the "Best When Used By" date is printed on the side flap of the box.

    The back of the box does contain allergy information indicating the product was manufactured on equipment that also processes peanut products and may contain peanuts. However, the cookie may contain peanut butter creme filling, rather than the vanilla creme filling depicted on the front label.

    No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date. No other Oreo, Fudge Covered Oreo, or Nabisco Pure Chocolate Covered cookie products are part of the recall, and there is no health risk for consumers who are not allergic to peanuts.

    The company learned of the error when a consumer in South Carolina, who purchased Pure Milk Chocolate Covered Oreo Sandwich Cookies, reported finding cookies with peanut butter creme filling rather than the vanilla creme filling depicted on the front label.

    Consumers who purchased the Pure Milk Chocolate Covered Oreo Sandwich Cookies with the UPC product code number of 44000 01094 may return the product to the store where purchased for a full refund.
