See also

Over the past five years it seems like the number of children with peanut allergies has tripled. Until recently, peanut allergies didn't appear to be so wide spread. Here's another recall, it's a Crunch'N Nutter- Mixed Nut recall. Although nuts are in the title of the brand--it is being recalled for undeclared peanuts.

The following information was released by the FDA, "FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - January 17, 2014 - Merrell Food Group of Dalton, WI, along with it’s manufacturing partner Rise’n Roll Specialties is recalling “Crunch’N Nutter Mixed Nut” candy packaged in a 4oz. green and yellow plastic bag, because it contains undeclared peanuts. This affects all product with a sell by date of June 1st 2014 or before.

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

The “Mixed Nut” was distributed to distributers in Wisconsin and New Jersey.

The product comes in 4oz bags labeled Crunch’N Nutter Mixed Nut with the UPC#861522000042

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

Recall was initiated during an FDA inspection of the manufacturer which found the undeclared peanut allergen in the product. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s production and packaging process.

Current product will be labeled to declare peanuts. This product is no longer manufactured with peanuts as of January 15th 2014.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-608-429-4838 Mon-Fri 8am to 5pm Central Standard Time.
