MARSHFIELD, WIS. (WSAW) -- Figi's recalls cookies that may contain undeclared allergens

Figi's Companies, Inc, based in Marshfield, is recalling two cookie products because they may contain undeclared milk allergen.

The company distributes seasonal and holiday-themed food items through online orders, mail orders and an outlet store.

-Bulk dark chocolate gingersnaps are packaged in a plastic bulk bag with approximately 8-12 ounces of product

The recalled dark chocolate gingersnaps were distributed nationwide through mail orders. The mail order gifts are Figi's Gift #0368 packed in a gold tin with an old-time winter scene on the lid. It contains a variety of gingersnaps and were distributed nationwide through a distributor who sold directly to consumers. The bulk dark chocolate gingersnaps in clear plastic bags were only distributed through Figi's Outlet Store located in Marshfield.
