One batch of Fat Cat Purry-Purry Sauce Hot Sauce has been recalled due to the potential presence of peanuts.

Those with a peanut allergy risk a serious—possibly life-threatening—allergic reaction if they ingest the affected product.

The affected hot sauce is in a five-ounce glass bottle, the necks of which show the lot number FCPPMAY092019 on them. The products were distributed only to 464 Winn-Dixie Supermarkets, BI-LO Supermarkets, and Harvey's Supermarkets in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Louisiana. They were sold between May 10, 2017 and June 8, 2017.

To date, no illnesses or incidents have been reported in relation to this recall. Nevertheless, consumers in possession of the affected product should take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.
