Allergy Alert Issued in Five Northern California Whole Foods Market Stores for Undeclared Walnuts in Pumpkin Drop Cookies

For Immediate Release

October 27, 2017





Five Whole Foods Market stores in Northern California are voluntarily recalling frosted Pumpkin Drop cookies because the products contained tree nut allergens (walnuts) that were not listed on the product label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to walnuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume these products.

They were sold in clear plastic packages and can be identified by the PLU number 024767. The products were sold between October 19 and October 26, 2017. One reaction has been reported to date.

The cookies were sold in the following locations in Northern California:

  • 3000 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, CA
  • 390 Coddingtown Mall, Santa Rosa, CA
  • 3502 Mt Diablo Boulevard, Lafayette, CA
  • 450 Rhode Island Street, San Francisco, CA
  • 1333 Newell Avenue, Walnut Creek, CA
