La Flor Products Co., Inc. of Hauppauge, NY, is recalling its 2-oz, 6-oz, and 5-lb packages of "La Flor–Ground Cumin” because they may contain traces of undeclared peanuts. People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled “La Flor-Ground Cumin” was distributed in the Tri-State area to supermarket chains, independent supermarkets and mass merchandisers.

The recalled product will be found in three (3) distinct packages.

  • Clear 2-oz square glass jar with label UPC-077636014503 and lot RLF 800 and expiration dates 5/13/18 or 7/14/18 stamped on the side.
  • Clear 6-oz clear round plastic jar with label UPC-077636014602 lot RLF 800 and expiration date 5/14/18 stamped on the side.
  • Clear 5-lb large plastic jar with handle with label UPC-077636514409 lot RLF 800 and expiration date 6/16/18 stamped on the side.

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

The recall was initiated after it was revealed by a supplier that the product we received contained traces of peanut and we distributed this product in packaging that did not reveal or state the presence of peanuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem originated at the country of origin where the product was harvested and processed.

Consumers who have purchased any of the “La Flor-Ground Cumin” in the packages listed above are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 631-851-9601, Monday-Friday 9am-4 pm ET.
