Announcement

HMSHost of Bethesda, Maryland is recalling multiple brands of trail mix, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The Cape Cod Cranberry Trail Mix, 7 oz., was sold under the brand names Fresh Attractions, 1897, Ciao, Farmers Market, Grounded In, La Tapenade, Marche, MKT, Pronto, PZA, The Local, and Urban Market in stores in the following markets: Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, and West Virginia.

The trail mix has a UPC code of 2050000142000 and a use by date from 4/5/16 to 9/17/16.

HMSHost was recently notified by one of its snack manufacturers, Woodstock Farms Manufacturing, that during their routine testing, the presence of Listeria monocytogenes was revealed in two lots of walnuts used in one of its trail mixes. To take every precaution, HMSHost has removed this product from stores and is initiating a recall of its 7 oz. Cape Cod Cranberry Trail Mix.

The manufacturer has reported that there are no known illnesses to date from the ingredient in question; however, we ask that you do not consume this product. Consumers who wish to receive a refund for unused portions may return it to the store for a full refund or contact customerservice@hmshost.com or call 1-877-672-7467. Our phone lines are manned 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
