  • Hostess SnoBall Cupcake products, marketed, sold and delivered in 90 gram (3.17 ounce) plastic single-serve packages with a batch/lot designation of I031221000, a best-before date of May 27, 2021 and a UPC of 888109010096

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

==> No item numbers, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

The recalled Hostess SnoBall Cupcake products were known to be marketed, distributed and sold in the convenience stores, dollar stores and distributors throughout the United States although it is always possible these food products had wider distribution within the country. When in doubt, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.

According to the FDA, Hostess Brands has recalled certain batch/lots of Hostess SnoBalls Cupcakes from the American marketplace due to suspected mislabeling/mispackaging and consequential undeclared Coconut. This reported defect was caused during production when some Hostess Chocolate CupCakes, baked goods that contain Coconut, were inadvertently placed and sold in packages of Hostess SnoBall Cupcakes, a baked good that does not identify Coconut as an ingredient.

==> For information about Coconut Allergy, please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of these recalled Hostess SnoBalls Cupcakes and could be allergic to their Coconut ingredients, have a close family member who is allergic or has previously experienced Anaphylaxis or are unsure of your allergy status, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat Anaphylaxis.
