See’s Candies is recalling one of its popular Easter treats — Divinity Easter Egg with Walnuts — because some boxes of the products may actually contain Peanut Butter Eggs, which could pose a serious allergy risk.
The San Francisco company said only a small number of boxes may contain peanut butter, but noted people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of suffering a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The product was distributed to See’s shops in Arizona, California, Nevada, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah.
It is sold individually in boxes labeled See’s Candies Divinity With Walnuts, 1.7 ounces, with the L.A.D. 102/13, visible on the inside back of the box, through the cellophane window.
No illnesses have been reported tied to the candies.
Consumers who purchased the product can return it or the receipt to any See’s Candies Shop or the place where it was purchased for a full refund or exchange.
