Announcement

Move Comes as Part of FDA’s Safety Advisory Regarding Grain Craft Flour Recall

Hostess Brands, LLC is voluntarily recalling 710,000 cases of select snack cakes and donuts as a direct result of the recent recall by our supplier, Grain Craft, of certain lots of its flour for undeclared peanut residue.  The Hostess Brands products subject to the recall were produced using the Grain Craft flour that has now been recalled and, as a result, these products may contain low levels of undeclared peanut residue.  More information about the Grain Craft recall can be found on the FDA’s website at: http://www.fda.gov/Food/RecallsOutbreaksEmergencies/SafetyAlertsAdvisories/ucm504002.htm

While those who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume products containing peanut allergens, the amount of peanut exposure from use of the flours and affected products is considered to be low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers.  To date, Hostess has received notice of two allergic reactions related to the product covered by this recall.  Out of an abundance of caution, we are recalling the specific products listed on the attachment.

This recall applies only to the products listed.  This recall does not affect any other Hostess Brands products.
