Golden Stream Quality Foods Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Cashews in Island Crunch Mix

(SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that Golden Stream Quality Foods has recalled 8 oz. packages of Island Crunch Mix because they may contain undeclared cashews. People who have allergies to cashews run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The Island Crunch Mix was distributed to retail stores in the following states: AL, AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, HI, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NE, NY, OH, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, WA and WI. The products affected would have a ?best by date? between 100303 and 050504. The product comes in an 8 oz. preprinted plastic stand up bag.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem. The recall was initiated after routine quality inspections discovered the cashew-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of cashews.

This recall is voluntarily initiated by Golden Stream in cooperation with the U.S. FDA.

In order to maintain the highest quality control, the company has already conducted a process audit and has implemented the appropriate corrective actions during the processing and packaging process.

Consumers who have purchased 8 oz. packages of Island Crunch Mix are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 317.567.2726.
