A recall of cashews was initiated last week by snack giant Snyder's-Lance after the manufacturer received a consumer complaint about a small piece of glass in a 100-calorie pack of Emerald roasted and salted cashew halves and pieces.

The packages in question were sold around the country in seven-pack boxes of 0.62 ounce roasted and salted cashew halves and pieces marked with best-if-used-by dates of Dec. 12, 13, 18, and 21, 2016, according to CNN. The retail carton UPC is 0 10300 33324 1 and the inner package UPC code is 0 10300 33399 9.

No injuries have been reported.

"The quality and safety of our products are the top priority for our company," read a Snyder's-Lance statement on the FDA website. "We apologize to our retail customers and consumers and sincerely regret any inconvenience created by this recall. We are working and cooperating fully with the U. S. Food and Drug Administration on this voluntary recall."

The company said in the FDA statement that it believes one of its suppliers was the source of the glass, but an investigation into the cause is ongoing.

"No injuries have been reported to date," the Snyder's-Lance FDA statement said. "We are recalling these products because they may contain small pieces of glass that could potentially cause injury . . . We are taking this action out of an abundance of caution after receiving a consumer complaint."

Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, Snyder's-Lance manufactures and markets snack foods, including pretzels, sandwich crackers, pretzel crackers, potato chips, cookies, tortilla chips, restaurant style crackers, popcorn, nuts, and other snacks, according to the company's website.

Some of its product brands include Snyder's of Hanover, Lance, Kettle Brand, Cape Cod, Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps, Pop Secret, Diamond of California, Late July, and Archway, according to its website.

The company said consumers who purchased the recalled products should contact its consumer affairs department for a refund or call (503) 364-0399.

New York-based Roland Foods has also issued a voluntary recall of its fire roasted red pepper strips over concerns about possible glass fragments, CNN reported. The two recalls are unrelated.
