Gretchen's Shoebox Express has announced a recall for an item due to an unlisted allergen.

The packing company, located in Seattle, WA, is recalling its Cheese & Fruit Bistro Box, sold exclusively at Starbucks. The product contains cashews, but the tree nut is not listed on the label. Cashews are a known allergen.

The recalled product is packaged in a clear, plastic box bearing item number 11015085 and an enjoy-by date of 03/04/2016.

The Cheese & Fruit Bistro Boxes involved were distributed to Starbucks retail locations in Washington State. No other products or enjoy-by dates are impacted by this recall.

The recall is being conducted because an ingredient supplier issued a recall for a specific lot of almonds used to construct the bistro boxes. The almonds may contain cashews. No illnesses have been reported to date.

Customers that have purchased the recalled product and have an allergy to cashews are being asked to dispose of the product or return it to a Starbucks location for a full refund of the purchase price.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Starbucks's Customer Relations at (800) 782-7282.
