BAK-EZ Bakery Company is recalling its Mantecada Muffin due to the possibility that it may contain undeclared milk in the allergen statement. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The product being recalled is the 7-Select Brand 4-ounce Mantecada Muffin, with SKU 9841 and UPC 05254859241-7, sold January 23 to March 3, 2017.

The Mantecada muffin was only sold at 7-Eleven stores in Southern California (San Diego, Bakersfield, and Los Angeles). No other stores outside this mentioned area were affected.
