The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

This'll just frost some of you

One of my few instances of brand loyalty is this: I buy genuine Pop-Tarts® from Kellogg's, in blueberry. The unfrosted blueberry, which seems to be an endangered species of late.

So it does my heart good to see that some of the frosted ones are being recalled:

Kellogg Company of Battle Creek, MI is recalling a limited number of cartons of Kellogg's Pop-Tarts Frosted Blueberry toaster pastries because they may contain undeclared milk. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk, run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The product was distributed to grocery retailers in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.

Turns out it's a case of mislabeling — they packaged some Hot Fudge Sundae tarts in the wrong boxes — but should just one person be persuaded to pass up that damn frosting, well, my work here is done.

If that milk doesn't declare, it will never graduate!
