Individuals with soy allergies or sensitivities should not consume the product.

According to the Food and Drug Administration recall listing, the product was a limited holiday seasonal offering sold exclusively at Walmart stores across the country. The impacted products are 7-ounce pouches of Lily's Peppermint Flavor Baking Chips with the UPC number 8-10003-46159-9.

The error was discovered after customers found white candy pieces mixed in with the baking chips. The white candy pieces contain soy lecithin, sugar, and other ingredients that are not present in the baking chips and therefore not listed in the ingredients. No illnesses or injuries have been reported to date.

Consumers who purchased affected product are urged to contact the company for a full refund by completing a contact form or by calling Lily's consumer contact line at 877-587-0557.
