free2b Foods Voluntary Recall – Chocolate Sun Cup

As a company that is dedicated to providing safe and delicious free-from snacks, we are letting our fans know that a small amount of our products, produced in early August, may inadvertently contain milk products.   For more information, please continue reading below or refer to our press release: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/free2b-foods-issues-allergy-alert-on-undeclared-milk-ingredient-in-chocolate-sun-cups-300361303.html?tc=eml_cleartime

For those of you who may be new to our treats, we have humble beginnings.  In 2008, a father knocked on our door with a jar of sunflower seed butter in hand. He presented us with a challenge: create a chocolate cup that his peanut allergic son could enjoy. Our chocolatiers got to work and the first Sun Cup was born.  Our passionate team, from the part-timers to the founding partners, manage their own personal food allergies.  So, our commitment runs deep and comes from personal experience. We know how hard it is to feed your family foods you can trust. We come to work each day with enthusiasm and pride in the fact that we are helping families enjoy safe and delicious treats.

As many of you have been asking us to do, we have been working very hard over the past year to remove dairy from our recipes as well as our facility.  We have been a Top 7 Allergen-Free company since opening our doors, and about a year ago, we set a commitment to become a Top 8 Allergen-Free company with a dedicated facility.  Our small team has accomplished quite a bit over the past year to reach this goal.  Our intention has always been and continues to be providing safe foods to those who struggle to find safe options elsewhere. It is why we started the work to remove dairy from our foods and facility.  It is why we are so proud to have now a dedicated facility, and why we feel terribly about this mistake.

We have initiated a recall of three particular batches of chocolate Sun Cups. Please check your packaging for the following information. You will find UPC codes and Sell By dates on the back of the package:

Spooky Spider Cake Recipe

Spooky Spider Cake

Ingredients

2 boxes of allergy friendly cake mix that fits your family’s needs

1 cup of coconut milk

1 banana, smashed

2 containers of allergy friendly chocolate frosting that fits your family’s needs

2 Free2b Chocolate Cups

Black pipe cleaners

Disposable frosting bag with small tip

Googly eyes

Directions

1. Make the cake mix according to the instructions on the box. We made our cake vegan by replacing the egg with 1 smashed banana to replace the eggs

2. Fill three 6X3 round cake tins with batter and bake according to the instructions.

3. When fully baked, remove from the oven and cool completely. Remove from the tins and cut off the very top part of two of the cakes so you have a smooth top.

4. Layer the cakes by frosting one layer and then stacking the next on top until you have all three cakes stacked. Smooth out the frosting using a frosting spreader.

5. Fill your frosting bag with the chocolate frosting and pipe out different sized lines to make it look like hair!

6. Add the googly eyes to the cups with chocolate frosting and stick them to the side of the cake. Add the black pipe cleaners to replicate spider legs. Serve and enjoy!
