Wilton Industries has recalled its Ready to Build Chocolate Cookie Bunny Hutch Kits just ahead of the Easter season due to a life-threatening allergy risk.

The Chocolate Bunny Kits were recalled by the company because they were missing a milk allergen from the “contains” statement on the product's list of ingredients.

The packaging does list “skim milk powder” as an ingredient, but the “contains” statement does not include “milk” as required. This could pose a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction to consumers who have a milk allergy or sensitivity.

The recalled Chocolate Bunny Kits are a 2022 Easter seasonal item that was distributed nationally at retail stores in the U.S. and online, including at www.wilton.com. They were also sold internationally at retail stores in Colombia.

The affected Chocolate Bunny Kits have a UPC number of 0070896117274. Lot codes include 22005, 22006, and 22007, which are located on the side or bottom of the box.

Wilton discovered the issue from a consumer inquiry after conducting its own internal review, which confirmed that the “contains” statement was in error.

Consumers with questions about the recall can email productrecall@wilton.com, or call Wilton’s Customer Care Team at 1-800-794-5866, Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET, or on Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET.

Wilton said that it has not received any reports of illness due to an allergic reaction to milk related to the recall.
