See's Candies recalls milk- and dark chocolate- raisin candies for undeclared tree nuts, eggs
Last Updated: 178 days ago
See’s Candies is recalling all of its milk- and dark chocolate raisins candies because it may contain tree nuts and eggs not listed on the label.
People who have an allergy to tree nuts or eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the chocolate-covered raisins.
The recall was initiated after a retail store discovered a chocolate covered pecan in the raisin bulk pack. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused because of shared lines that produce nut-containing candies. There is a potential that nut and egg residue may be present in some of the chocolate raisins.
The candies was distributed nationwide through See’s Candies retail stores, other licensees and online and mail order.
The product is sold bulk and packaged at the stores in 8oz. clear cellophane bags.
No illnesses have been reported to date. The product UPC are as follows: Milk Raisins UPC: 737666083060 and Dark Raisins UPC: 737666083053.
Consumers who have purchased See's chocolate raisins and are sensitive to nuts and eggs are told to return the raisins to the place of purchase for a full refund or exchange. If you have questions, call the company at 1-800-789-7337 (Monday thru Friday, 8:30a.m. to 4:30p.m. PDT).
