Two Moms Issues Recall Over Peanuts Not Listed on Label
Two Moms in the Raw from Colorado is voluntarily recalling packages of Pesto Sea Crackers because an ingredient was not declared on the product's label. The packages were distributed across the nation from July 2, 2012, to August 6, 2012.
The product Gluten-Free Pesto Sea Crackers in four ounce packages may contain peanuts that were not listed as an ingredient. Peanuts are a major food allergy and those who have peanut allergies may endure a serious or life threatening reaction if they were to come in contact with these products.
The Pesto Sea Crackers are enclosed in a brown semi-synthetic packaging that has a transparent section showing the contents. The label is green, white and blue and has blue, green and red print writing. Anyone with the affected product and peanut allergy is encouraged to contact Two Moms in the Raw for a refund. There have been no reports of illness from ingesting the Sea Crackers.
The recall began when the company was notified by its ingredient supplier that pine nuts used in the product may have been contaminated with peanuts.
Hummingbird Wholesale Didn't Have Peanuts on their Label
Two Moms in the Raw was not the only company issuing a recall over peanuts not being on product labels, the Food Poisoning Bulletin reported.
The affected product was Hummingbird Wholesales Pine Nuts, which might have contained undeclared peanuts, the source reported.
