The error was discovered after consumers contacted the company and reported finding pieces of white candy mixed with Lily’s Peppermint Flavor baking chips. The disc-shaped white candy pieces are said to contain soy lecithin, sugar and other ingredients not found in Lily’s Peppermint Flavor crisps.

The product is being recalled to protect those who have a severe allergy or sensitivity to soy and should not consume the product. However, no illness or injury has been reported.
