Hope Foods Issues Allergy Alert and Voluntary Recall on Undeclared Walnuts in Kale Pesto Hummus
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — April 1, 2015 — Louisville, CO — Hope Foods is voluntarily recalling one specific lot of Kale Pesto Hummus because it contains undeclared walnuts. People who have an allergy or sensitivity to walnuts run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product. The hummus is safe for consumption by those who do not have walnut allergies.
The affected product was distributed in 8 oz plastic tubs and is marked with a Best By date of 05/04/15 and Lot Code of 030215-KP which can be found on the side of the lid. The unit UPC is 8-56500-00426-6. No other product is included in this recall.
We believe fewer than 3100 units have been distributed nationwide to limited retailers and wholesalers in the US only.
The recall was initiated after Hope Foods discovered that product containing walnuts was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of walnuts. No illnesses have been reported to date.
Consumers with a walnut allergy who have purchased the affected product are urged to dispose of it or return them to the store where they were purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers with questions can call Hope Foods at 720-663-7123, Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm MST.
This limited voluntary recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
