Reily Foods Co., New Orleans, has announced it is recalling certain Carroll Shelby brand and Wick Fowler brand chili seasoning kits after learning that one or more of the spice ingredients from a third-party supplier contain peanut and almond allergens that are not declared on the products' ingredient statements.
Anyone who has an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts and almonds run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
This recall affects the following products (listed with Consumer UPC number, Unit Size, Item Description, and Best By Date Range):

Reily Foods Co. is receiving these ingredients from other sources in anticipation of resuming production shortly.
Consumers who have purchased the recalled products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
