California-based specialty grocery store chain Trader Joe’s Company has issued a nationwide safety recall of its 16 ounce packages of Trade Joe’s Cinnamon Almonds due to unlisted peanuts, posing the risk of an allergic reaction in those sensitive to the ingredient, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported on March 12.
The company said the labeling error was caused by a temporary glitch in the supplier’s production and packaging system. The affected products bear a UPC of # 00761437 located at the back of the package. All of the affected products have been removed from the market and their sale has also been halted.
To date, the company has received one report of an allergic reaction possibly associated with the mislabeled food product.
