16 December - USA: Bee International is recalling its 2oz. packages of candy "Sweet Spots" because they may contain undeclared egg protein.
The recalled "Sweet Spots" were distributed nationwide in retail stores and through food distributors by the Californian firm.
FDA received a complaint from Raleigh, North Carolina on the candy product after a child had a reaction to resembling an allergic reaction.
A sample was collected and lab results indicate it tested positive for egg allergen. The only allergen warning is that it contains soy.
The problem was caused by a breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes.
The product is labeled as being made in China but distributed by Bee International in Chula Vista, CA
