Cascadian Farm Organic Cinnamon Raisin Granola Recalled

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports that food company General Mills has issued a nationwide recall of two production runs of its branded “CASCADIAN FARM ORGANIC CINNAMON RAISIN GRANOLA” from store shelves and customer warehouses. This cereal product may contain almonds, a nut allergen that was not mentioned on the cereal box label.

The cereal boxes affected by the recall are stamped with the plant code “JK” and “BETTER IF USED BY” dates of either “20MAR2018JK” or “21MAR2018JK.” Individuals who are allergic to almonds may become ill if they eat this cinnamon raisin granola cereal. They should either throw the cereal away or return the box to its place of purchase for a replacement or complete refund.General Mills recalls granola for undeclared almonds

There have been no reports of allergic reactions or illnesses, either to public health officials or the company. Nut allergies can cause serious reactions, and even anaphylaxis, which can cause death.

Early symptoms of an allergic reaction include a tingling sensation in the mouth, lips, tongue, and throat; a strange taste in the mouth, skin redness, especially around the lips and eyes, nasal congestion, a flare of eczema, and stomach pain. More serious symptoms include diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. And the most severe symptoms that may be life-threatening include difficulty swallowing, swelling of the mouth that blocks breathing, drop in blood pressure, and chest pain.
