See’s Company of San Francisco is recalling all Milk and Dark Raisins because it may contain tree nuts and eggs that are not included on the ingredient list. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to tree nuts (e.g.: almonds, walnuts, pecans, cashews) and/or eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The raisin product was distributed nationwide through See’s Candies Retail Stores, Licensees and Mail Order. The product is sold bulk and packaged at the stores in 8oz clear cellophane bags. The product UPC are as follows: Milk Raisins UPC: 737666083060 and Dark Raisins UPC: 737666083053.
The recall was initiated after a retail store discovered a chocolate covered pecan in the raisin bulk pack. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused because of shared lines that produce nut containing candies. There is a potential that nut and egg residue may be present in some of the chocolate enrobed raisins.
