Walgreens Recalls Chocolate-Covered Raisins As Product May Contain Peanuts, Almonds, Soy Due to Packaging Error


Walgreens is voluntarily recalling certain lots of 13-oz. Walgreens Chocolate-Covered Raisins because the packages may contain Walgreens Bridge Mix with peanut, almond and soy ingredients.

 

The error occurred when Walgreens Bridge Mix was mistakenly packaged with the Walgreens Chocolate-Covered Raisin labeling. Walgreens discovered this after receiving a consumer complaint of an allergic reaction. The product manufacturer, GKI Foods, Inc. of Brighton, Mich., is also cooperating in the voluntary recall.

 

Walgreen has already instructed stores to stop selling the affected product, which can be identified as a blue and white plastic bag with chocolate-covered raisins pictured on the front and the following identifying information on the back label: best by date of "Oct 42012A1", UPC number 04902245661, and item number 280217.

 

The affected product was distributed through Walgreen distribution centers in Arizona, Connecticut and California and to Walgreens retail stores in the Northeastern and Western United States.
