As the week winds down, it's time for the latest edition of the Recall Roundup.

According to Flowers Foods: "The voluntary recall was initiated after Flowers discovered that product containing milk was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk."

Meanwhile, here's a recap of some other recalls involving the food industry that have taken place over the last several days.

Iowa-based Lee Seed Company, Inc, announced Thursday it was recalling Yogurt Super Soynuts due to the presence of undeclared milk, according to a news release published to the Food and Drug Administration website.

According to the news release:

To date, there have been no reports of illnesses in connection with use of this product.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the product label on the dairy-containing product did not reveal the presence of milk.

Michigan-based R.W. Baker Co., announced Thursday it was recalling packages of "Meijer Plain Knot Rolls" and "Assorted Dinner Rolls" due to the possibility the products may contain trace amounts of modified peanuts, according to a news release published to the FDA website.

According to the news release:

No confirmed illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem. The recall was initiated after it was discovered that there could be a potential for cross contamination with peanuts and the packaging statement did not reveal the presence of peanuts.

According to a news release published to the FDA website last Friday, Trader Joe's announced it was voluntarily recalling Trader Joe's Chocolate Orange Sticks and Trader Joe's Chocolate Raspberry Sticks "because the products may contain more than the stated 'traces of milk' on the label."

The news release states:

All affected product has been removed from store shelves. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

Trader Joe's Chocolate Orange Sticks and Trader Joe's Chocolate Raspberry Sticks are packaged in an 18 oz. clear tub. The products were distributed to Trader Joe's stores nationwide. Trader Joe's initiated the voluntary removal of these products after noticing the chocolate coating appeared lighter in color than expected. Two allergic reactions have been reported to date.
