The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Foods are subject to this recall:

  • Amport Milk Chocolate Raisins, sold in 12-ounce clear tubs; lot code: 078X344; Best-By code: 12-19-13; UPC: 0 71725 71190 8

According to the FDA, this recall is based on the discovery that some Milk Chocolate Peanuts was erroneously labeled as Milk Chocolate Raisins. This product was distributed to Albertsons, Farm Fresh/Supervalu, Hy-Vee and The Kroger Co. stores in the US Mid-Atlantic, Midwest and West.

About Peanut Allergies:
For some people, groundnuts (such as peanuts) and tree nuts (such as almonds and walnuts) can be a source of dangerous, urgent and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to peanuts or other nuts within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, Call 9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
