Vermont Common Foods, operating under the Orton Bros. Brand, is recalling one lot of Zesty Lemon Cookie Buttons because they may contain Peanut Butter Cookies. The product label does not declare peanuts.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled Zesty Lemon Cookie Buttons would have been purchased in the all-natural section of Hannaford Supermarket stores. The cookies are in a 6 oz. yellow box, UPC code 20104 19100. The lot code LOT14021M and expiration date of 10-21-14 are stamped on the bottom of the box.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that a portion of one lot of Peanut Butter Cookies was erroneously labeled as Zesty Lemon Cookie Buttons. Subsequent investigation indicates that the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's packaging processes.

Consumers who have purchased any of the recalled Zesty Lemon Cookie Buttons are urged to return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. For further details on this recall, contact Vermont Common Foods at 802-775-4111.
