Nationwide Recall of Twix Bites Due to Unlabeled Allergens

Mars Chocolate North America recalled Twix Brand Unwrapped Bites 7 oz. Stand Up Pouch with the code date: 421BA4GA60. About 25 cases of the stand-up pouches in this single lot code may contain product containing peanuts and eggs without listing them on the ingredient label. People who have allergies to peanuts and egg run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.


The issue was identified after a consumer notified the manufacturer that there were peanuts in a Twix Unwrapped Bites product.


This specific code date was shipped and distributed to warehouses in Indiana, Texas, Oregon, Tennessee, and Connecticut. These warehouses then redistribute the products for retail sale nationwide.


The affected Twix Brand Unwrapped Bites product comes in a 7 ounce, metallized-golden package marked with lot # 421BA4GA60 and with an expiration date of 03/2015 stamped on the back.
