Pepperidge Farm has announced a recall of approximately 46,000 packages of bagels, distributed to stores in 23 states, over fears that the products may contain peanuts or almonds that may cause a serious allergic reaction for some consumers, reports The Associated Press.
The recall was issued on Friday, February 6, after a bakery that makes the bagels noticed that the packaging did not identify peanuts or almonds as potential ingredients. The recall applies to packages with sell-by dates between February 7 and February 12, and affects plain, everything, and cinnamon raisin bagels. The recall also affects packages of mini bagels, in whole wheat, cinnamon raisin, and brown sugar with cinnamon raisin flavors.
The bagels were distributed to stores in 23 states: Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Customers who purchased any products identified in the recall will be issued a full refund after they return the bagels to the place of purchase.
