Allergy Alert: Undeclared Walnuts in Banana Nut Muffins

Defective Food Product

Marion, Indiana-based Café Valley recalled nearly 550 cases of Banana nut mini muffins on September 26 because they may contain walnuts that were not written in the ingredients.

Product details:  The product, mislabeled as Lemon Poppy Seed mini muffins, were actually Café Valley Brand 12ct Banana Nut mini muffins. A date code (160803) is written on top of the packaging.

Recall Issue: Walnuts are a declared ingredient of the Banana Nut mini muffins but, since the product was mislabeled, the nut’s presence is hidden to consumers. Walnuts are not present in the Lemon Poppy Seed mini muffins. The error lies with assembly, which accidentally kept a remaining roll of Lemon Poppy Seed labels in the production line of the Banana Nut muffins.

Consumers who bought the affected product are able to return them to the original place of purchase for reimbursement.
