Undeclared Nuts Prompt Recalls of Aunt Beth’s Cookies and Wegmans’ Bulk Nut Crunch

In two separate recalls, the possible presence of undeclared nuts in food products have prompted their removal from store shelves. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) reports that both Aunt Beth’s Cookies (located in Mishawaka, Indiana) and First Source (headquartered in Tonawanda, New York) have issued these voluntary recalls.

Aunt Beth’s Cookies recalled nine (9) varieties of cookies after it was ascertained the cookies might have been contaminated by peanuts or tree nuts during the manufacturing process; the potential presence of the nut allergens was not listed on the product labeling. These cookies were distributed through wholesalers in the states of Indiana and Illinois. Sold between January 1, 2017 and September 28, 2017, the varieties of cookies affected by the recall are all sizes of “AMISH SUGAR,” “CHOCOLATE CHIP N CHUNK,” “FROSTED BROWNIE,” “FROSTED SUGAR,” “M&M CANDY,” “MUDSLIDE TRIPLE CHOCOLATE,” “OATMEAL RAISIN,” “RED VELVET,” and “SNICKERDOODLE” cookies.

In the second recall, First Source recalled its “HONEY ROAST NUT CRUNCH” product, sold between October 9, 2017 and October 19, 2017 in the bulk foods departments of 30 Wegmans Food Markets in the states of Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. This recall occurred after almonds were erroneously incorporated into the mix rather than peanuts, a substitution not recorded on the product label.

People who are allergic or sensitive to peanuts or almonds / tree nuts should not eat these recalled lots of Aunt Beth’s Cookies or the Honey Roast Nut Crunch sold at Wegmans between the dates listed above. Instead, these products should be thrown away or returned to their place of purchase for a full refund.Warning Recall Sign
