The recall advisory notes that the product in question was manufactured on Jan. 25, 2021.

Jolly Time Pop Corn recalled its Healthy Pop Kettle Corn 100’s over undeclared milk ingredients. Milk is considered one of the eight major food allergens in the U.S., along with eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybeans. According to The Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA), these ingredients must be listed on a product due to the potential reactions they can cause.
No other Jolly Time products or flavors are affected by the recall.
