Bean snack recalled over undeclared ingredient

Posted on February 16, 2016 5:07 pm under Defective Food Product

On February 5, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a recall notice for TF Foods’ Fried Bean Snack (Na-Pia-Jo) based on the discovery that it may contain peanuts that were not disclosed on the packaging, which is dangerous and could lead to serious reactions for people with allergies or severe sensitivity to peanuts. Although the product poses the risk of adverse allergic reactions, there have been no reported illnesses at this time.

The recalled product is packaged in a 10.60 ounce, clear plastic bag, according to the FDA. It was distributed to different retail stores throughout the country from November 2015 until February 2016.

An investigation revealed that the fault occurred when the company changed the recipe to add the peanuts but failed to change the details on the packaging.
