Hostess Brands has recalled 710,000 cases of its own snack cakes and donuts after one of its suppliers, Grain Craft, recalled flour that may have had undeclared peanut residue.
The recall affects select items of Hostess products, including Chocodile, Ding Dong, Zingers, Chocolate Donuts, Crunch Donuts, Devil Food Donuts, Glaze Mini Donut Bag, Maple Donut bag and Powder Donuts, according to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration statement
"The Hostess Brands products subject to the recall were produced using the Grain Craft flour that has now been recalled and, as a result, these products may contain low levels of undeclared peanut residue," said a Hostess statement
"While those who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume products containing peanut allergens, the amount of peanut exposure from use of the flours and affected products is considered to be low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers," said Hostess.
Hostess said it had received two reports of allergic reactions to the products covered by the recall.
"The Hostess Brands products affected by the recall include single serve (snack cakes and donuts), multipack boxes and bagged donuts," said Hostess. "The products were sold to mass merchandisers, grocery stores, distributors, dollar stores, drug stores, and convenience stores throughout the United States and Mexico."
Hostess said the products should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.
