FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 22, 2010 - Glendale, CA - Nestlé USA's Confections & Snacks Division is initiating a voluntary recall of Nestlé® RAISINETS® Fun Size Bags (10oz) with a production code of 02015748/UPC number 2800010255, which may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have allergies or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. Nestlé is taking this action out of an abundance of caution.
Nestlé® RAISINETS® Fun Size Bags (10oz) with a production code of 02015748 were distributed only in the U.S. to Target, Shop Rite and Don Quixote retail stores. Three complaints have been received to date. While this product is labeled with a precautionary statement "made on equipment that also processes peanuts," the product should not, but may contain some peanuts that are not declared on the label.
Providing safe, high quality products to our consumers is our number one priority. We have advised the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and will cooperate fully in their investigation. The only product involved is Nestlé® RAISINETS® Fun Size Bags (10oz) distributed in the U.S. with a production code of 02015748/UPC number 2800010255. No other Nestlé products are impacted.
Consumers who are allergic to peanuts and who have purchased the recalled products are advised by Nestlé not to consume them. Instead, Nestlé asks these consumers to contact Nestlé Consumer Services directly at 1-800-478-5670 for a full refund and discard any remaining packages. Consumers should not return Nestlé® RAISINETS® Fun Size Bags (10oz) with a production code of 02015748/UPC number 2800010255 to retailers. Operators are available between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. EST and after hours for emergencies.
