Peanut Allergy Alert
Tropical Nut and Fruit Co. of Orlando Florida is voluntarily recalling five lots of snack mix "Chia ReCharged Stix Mix” 5 ounce pouches because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The recalled "Chia ReCharged Stix Mix” 5 ounce pouches were distributed between June 6, 2012 to October 23, 2012 to wholesalers and in retail stores nationwide.
Item Name: “Chia ReCharged Stix Mix” 5 ounce stand up resealable plastic pouches
UPC Code: 0 94184 01014 6
The lot numbers are as follows:
Affected packages can be identified by the best before date stamped on the back of the pouches above the bar code. These best before date are from 01/20/13 to 04/17/13.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the peanut-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary break down in the company's production and packaging processes.
Consumers who are in possession of 5 ounce pouches of “Chia ReCharged Stix Mix” with the lots numbers or best before dates listed above are urged to contact Tropical Nut and Fruit Co. by calling 1-800-749-8869, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm EST.
