Dollar General Corporation has announced a voluntary recall of its 12-ounce packages of Clover Valley® Iced Oatmeal Cookies with lot # L46217 30 with a best-by date of Aug. 18, 2018 over concerns of undeclared milk and tree nuts, according to a news release from the Michigan Agriculture and Rural Development Department.
Consumers with a milk and/or nut allergy or sensitivity to these items should not consume these products due to a possible health risk or serious allergic reaction. No illnesses or reactions have been reported at this time
