Trader Joe's product recall and allergy alert on undeclared peanuts in Cinnamon Almonds
Trader Joe's Company is recalling all of its 16-ounce packages of Trader Joe's Cinnamon Almonds because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The recalled Trader Joe's Cinnamon Almonds were distributed nationwide in Trader Joe's retail stores. The product comes in a 16 ounce, clear plastic package marked with UPC # 00761437 on the back of the package.
The recall was initiated after peanuts were discovered in packages of Trader Joe's Cinnamon Almonds. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the supplier's production and packaging processes. All products have been removed from store shelves. Sale of this product has been suspended.
To date, Trader Joe's has received one report of an allergic reaction potentially linked to this product.
Customers who have purchased 16-ounce packages of Trader Joe's Cinnamon Almonds and have a sensitivity to peanuts are urged to discard the product or return it to any Trader Joe's for a full refund.
