Nassau Candy Conducts Nationwide Recall on Select Boxes of Nancy Adams Classic

Peanut Allergen

516-433-7100 extension 7297 or 7287


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 19, 2011 - Nassau Candy Distributors is recalling their NANCY ADAMS Classics MINI S’MORES as they may contain peanuts not listed on the label.  People who have an allergy to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.  For consumers who are not allergic to peanuts, there is no safety issue with the product.

The product was sold nationwide through retail stores.

The following is the item description of the product being recalled:

  • NANCY ADAMS Classic MINI S‘MORES, Net Wt. 5.5 oz. (155g), in a red & silver box with a manufacturing code of either I1119 or I1120 under the following UPC 6 18645 21923 9.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

This voluntary recall was initiated after the company received a report that a unit purchased in a retail location contained the undeclared peanuts.  Subsequent investigation revealed that some bags of peanut clusters may have been inadvertently packed into boxes of the Nancy Adams Classic S‘Mores.  The Nancy Adams Classic S‘Mores are not supposed to contain peanuts.  All of the retail stores have been notified and the affected product is being removed from the shelves and being discarded.

Consumers who have questions about this recall or for a full refund or replacement may contact Maria Adames at Nassau Candy at 1-516-433-7100 extension 7297 or 7287, Monday – Friday 9 am – 5 pm ET.
