The disc-shaped candies contained soy lecithin, which is a known allergen, as well as other ingredients not listed on the label.
In an FDA notification, Lily’s Sweets admitted the error and informed the public it had found the source of the error, which was a co-manufacturer. Even though up until today there have been no reports of illness or injury related to the Walmart recall, Lily’s is staying on the cautious side and wants everyone to be aware of the product recall.
