FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — Duarte, CA — February 23, 2006 — FEDERICO’S BAKERY of Duarte, California is recalling its “Apricot-filled Butter Cookies” because they contain Sodium-Bisulfite in the Apricot filling. People who have allergies to sulfites run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled “Apricot-filled Butter Cookies” were distributed in California in retail stores. The product comes in a clear plastic package and is contained in the following item numbers:

Item No. / Description / Size

VS 118 / Italian Deluxe Assortment / 13.50 oz

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the Sodium-Bisulfite containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of Sodium- Bisulfite. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by not properly labeling the Sodium-Bisulfite in the packages.

Consumers who have purchased the packages above are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-626-357-3243 extension 13.
