Allergy Alert Issued for Unstated Milk and Red 40 in .5 oz. Shake'Ems Seasoning Cups Sold in Movie Theaters

Cutting Edge Concessions issued an allergy alert on unstated milk and red 40 in .5 oz. Shake'Ems seasoning cups distributed in movie theaters in California, Colorado, Arkansas and Tennessee. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.


The products were distributed in a .5 oz. plastic cup labeled with Shake'Ems on the top. Flavors include: White Cheddar, Nacho Cheddar, Ranch, Cinnamon Sugar and Parmesan Garlic.


The recall was initiated after the FDA discovered that the products contain milk and red 40, but product packaging did not reveal the presence of these ingredients. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s labeling process.


Production of the product has been suspended until the FDA and the company are certain that the problem has been corrected.
