Kansas City, Missouri-based Russell Stover Chocolates is recalling certain Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups due to the potential for undeclared pecans, an allergen, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
The recall involves two Best Before Dates of its Peanut Butter Cups packaged in a 2.4 oz plastic bag. They are labeled with Best Before dates of 01MAY23 and 01JUN23 and UPC of 077260096937 with Lot code(s): K0521, K0321, K0421, L2122, L2221, L2321.
The affected products were distributed nationwide to wholesale and retail stores.
The recalled Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups may contain Sugar Free Pecan Delights. Pecans are not declared on the label.
The recall was initiated following consumer contacts regarding the wrong product inside the outer packaging for Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups product.
It was found that the company’s 3rd party co-packing firm mistakenly placed individually-wrapped Sugar Free Pecan Delight products in the outer packaging for Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups. The inner packaging correctly identifies the products as Sugar Free Pecan Delights. The physical Sugar Free Pecan Delight product appears distinct from the Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cup product.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to pecans may get a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
However, Russell Stover has not received any reports of illness or allergic reactions related to this issue to date.
Consumers are asked to contact Russell Stover Chocolates directly for a voucher or replacement product.
