In late October, the United States Food and Drug Administration announced that Everlasting Distributors Inc., of Bayonne, New Jersey was initiating a nationwide recall of all their 3.88oz (110gm) packages of Fresh and Crispy Jacobina Biscuits. FDA testing discovered that product was found to contain Melamine.. Melamine has been used to artificially increase the appearance of protein in milk. The World Health Organization says that melamine and cyanuric crystals can grow and block the tunules and have been found in the kidneys of children. In China, melamine has been linked to the death of infant children and to the illness of thousands of other children.
The product comes in 3.88oz (110 gm) blue and red color clear plastic package, labeled “JACOBINA”. Those chocolates were sold in Asian grocery stores. Consumers who have purchased Fresh and Crispy Jacobina Biscuits are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 201-823-0800, Monday to Friday 9:00 to 5:00, Eastern Standard Time.
