WASHINGTON, April 11 (UPI) -- Easy-Bake of Pawtucket, R.I., Friday recalled 155,000 of its Easy-Bake Bake 'N Design cookie sets because the white cookie mix included in the sets contains milk proteins and possibly peanuts, both of which were not declared on the label, posing the threat of allergic reaction in some people.

The recall involves product Nos. 60813/60821 and 60814/60821.

The company, a division of Hasbro Inc., said it had received no reports of illnesses related to the product in the United States but there was one report in Canada.

The sets were sold in a purple and pink box with the Easy-Bake logo on the outside and included a white cookie mix, icing mix, two food decorating pens and four cookie cutters.

Major toy stores and mass merchandise outlets nationwide sold the product beginning in November 2001 and for about $6.99.

Consumers may call 800-327-8264 or go to easybake.com for information on how to return these products for a replacement item of comparable value.

Also:
