  • Great Value Walnut Chopped Pieces, sold in four (4)-ounce resealable plastic pouches with a batch/lot of 29329, a use-by date of April 29, 2023 and a UPC of 78742201344

==> No item numbers, best-before date codes, 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.

These Great Value Walnut Chopped Pieces were known to be marketed, distributed and sold from Walmart Stores in the US states of Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina, 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.

This recall was initiated after it was discovered that a defect in a packaging run of the company’s Pecan products was mistakenly labeled as Chopped Walnuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to Pecans run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

If you are concerned about distribution outside the United States, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.
