Gourmet Snack Line Recalled for Undeclared Allergies
Snacks On Racks Inc. is recalling dozens of products from its retail locations due to the lack of adequate warnings for a number of potential food allergens. These products are only sold in food service establishments throughout the continental United States, and all bear a blue Snacks on Racks label. They are not sold at convenience or grocery stores, but are retailed at hospital gift stores, universities, and kiosks.
The recall was initiated upon discovery of a discrepancy with the labels on chocolate raisins. Further investigation showed several inadequacies with the company’s production and packaging lines, which have since been corrected.
Some of the allergies that may be triggered by the product are related to:
- Tree nuts
In most cases, people with these types of allergies rely on proper labeling in order to avoid foods that may pose a danger. Inadequate labeling is a serious issue for people suffering from food allergies.
