JFC International Inc. of Los Angeles, CA is voluntarily recalling all lot codes of its 3-pack Hapi Pudding with a net weight of 8.46 ounces (UPC 11152 13417), because they may contain undeclared milk.

People who have allergies to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the products.

The recalled product, "Hapi Pudding" was distributed nationwide to retail stores.

The product comes in a pack of three, weighing a total of 8.46 ounces, in clear plastic containers, with an orange and white seal on the top. The seal has the words "Hapi Pudding" with an image of a pudding. The 3 pack of pudding is plastic wrapped, with the product information found at the bottom of the product.

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

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the milk-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk to the consumer. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by an inadvertent omission on the label by the producer during the revision of the packaging process.

JFC has immediately responded to this issue and have already taken action to stop sales and distribution of the affected product.

Consumers who have purchased the product "Hapi Pudding" are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-633-1004, Monday – Friday, 8:30am-5pm PST.
