Allergy alert issued for Starbucks Black & White Mini Cookies
The Starbucks menu in 13 states just lost a popular item.
The company says that treats sold on or before April 23rd pose a health risk to some because it contains milk - an ingredient that isn't listed on the packaging.
WNBC reports two customers with milk allergies reported reactions after eating the cookies.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, an investigation found that an oversight error in the packaging design omitted the ingredient.
The administration says Sweet Sam's will correct the label before reintroducing the cookies to the market. For now, anyone who may have purchased the Black & White cookies from Starbucks are urged to throw them away or return to the store to get a full refund.
