People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the recalled product.

Recall Details

A label mix-up was discovered by a consumer who received and opened a Cashew Tower Set—which consists of three individual cashew cans. One of the three cans, the 10 oz. can of Chocolate Covered Cashews, was found to actually contain salted peanuts.

The recalled product can be identified by the following information:

The Chocolate Covered Cashews used in Cashew Towers (item #89291) were sold through Plow & Hearth catalogs, the Plow & Hearth website, and Plow & Hearth retail stores between October 25, 2017 and November 17, 2017.

Virginia Diner says that it has not received any reports of illness or injury to date related to this issue. This recall does not apply to any other Virginia Diner or Plow & Hearth branded products.
