Whole Foods Red Velvet Cheesecake Slices Recalled For Allergen

Whole Foods Red Velvet Cheesecake Slices are being recalled from 36 stores in California; Boise, Idaho; and Reno, Nevada because they contain walnuts, or tree nuts, that are not declared on the label. The recall was started when a store began to individually package the product and found that the manufacturer had mislabeled the product as Red Velvet Layered Cheesecake when it actually contained Carrot Cake Layered Cheesecake.

Anyone who is allergic to walnuts or tree nuts could have a serious allergic reaction if they eat this product. No allergic reactions have been reported to the company to date.

The recalled Whole Foods Red Velvet cheesecake slices were sold in the bakery department. The product was sold by the slice in plastic clamshell containers with Whole Foods Market scale labels. The PLU code on the product is 78620. The sell by dates for this product run through July 1, 2020.

All affected product has been removed from store shelves. If you purchased this product that is labeled as Whole Foods Red Velvet Cheesecake and cannot eat walnuts for whatever reason, don’t consume it. You can throw it away, or take it back to the place of purchase for a refund. You can also bring a valid receipt into stores for a refund.

Symptoms of a food allergy can appear at any time in life without warning. Symptoms of a tree nut food allergy can include abdominal pain, cramps, nausea, and vomiting, diarrhea, difficulty swallowing, itching of the mouth, throat, lips, tongue, eyes, skin, or any other area, nasal congestion or a runny nose, nausea, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing. People experiencing these symptoms should see a doctor.
