Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Mixed Nut products are subject to this recall:

  • Fresh From Meijer branded Mixed Nuts, sold in clear plastic 16-ounce packages with sell-by dates of 7-16-2020, 9-5-2020 or 10-15-2020 and a UPC of 7-1928380863-9

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

According to the FDA, the recall was initiated after it was discovered the Mixed Nut product contained Brazil Nuts, an ingredient that is not part of the product formulation or declared on package labeling.

Subsequent investigation revealed an incorrect formulation was used to manufacture this product and should not have included the Brazil Nuts. The multi-state recall involves product potentially sold between December 5, 2019 and March 9, 2020 in all Meijer Super Stores located in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
