Honey Roast Nut Crunch Sold at Wegmans Recalled Due to Undeclared Almonds
People who have an allergy or sensitivity to tree nuts should not consume this product
Honey Roast Nut Crunch sold at Wegmans stores is being recalled by First Source because it contains undeclared almonds.
People who have an allergy or sensitivity to tree nuts (almonds) run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The recalled Honey Roast Nut Crunch was distributed to 30 Wegmans Food Markets in the states of Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, and sold by the pound in the bulk foods department.
The affected product was sold from October 9, 2017 to October 19, 2017. No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date. Wegmans says that it will place automated phone calls to customers who purchased the product using their Shoppers Club card to alert them to the recall.
This recall was initiated after First Source discovered that almonds were mistakenly added to the mix in place of peanuts. Subsequent investigation indicated the problem was caused by an error during the mixing of the product and a temporary breakdown in First Source's allergen control process.
