Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Dry Roasted Almonds are subject to this recall:

  • Dry Roasted Almonds, distributed to six (6) wholesale customers in Arizona, California and Colorado.

The Almonds were shipped in 25 pound bulk cartons, marked with lot number 1050188-1-16007 on the side of the cardboard cartons. The cartons were in turn distributed to other food production companies for further processing and packaging: the Almonds were not distributed directly to consumers for sale in retail outlets. The recalled Dry Roasted Almonds were distributed between January 26, 2016 and February 16, 2016. No UPCs were listed for the recalled Almonds.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging and design presentation.

According to the FDA, this recall was initiated after it was discovered that the Cashew-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of Cashews. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary process breakdown by a third-party, contract manufacturer that processed and packaged the almonds for Specialty Commodities. The Dry Roasted Almonds were inadvertently mixed with Cashews before being forwarded to impacted customers.
