MLO Products, Inc. Issues Food Allergy Alert on Undeclared Peanuts in GeniSoy Chocolate Soy Nuts

(SafetyAlerts) - MLO Products, of Fairfield, California, is recalling certain lots of 8oz and 20gram bags of Chocolate Soy Nuts because they may contain peanuts mixed with the roasted soy nuts. People who are allergic to peanuts are at risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

These products are distributed all across the US. The 8oz bags sold via the internet and from health food, convenience, and some grocery stores are identified by the following expiration dates embossed on the front of the package along the left had seal. EXP 04/14/04, EXP 04/23/04, EXP 04/28/04, and EXP 05/27/04. In addition, there are a small number of 20 gram sample bags with the following expiration dates: EXP 04/15/04 and EXP 05/07/04. No other lots with other expiration dates are involved in the recall.

The chocolate covered roasted soybeans, or soy nuts, were manufactured for MLO by Harmony Foods of Santa Cruz, California. Records show that Harmony sent MLO some coated peanuts along with the coated soy nuts. Since chocolate peanuts and chocolate soy nuts look the same, they were packaged at the MLO facility as Chocolate Soy Nuts. Harmony foods had corrected their operations to avoid this type of contamination in the future.

For replacement or a refund, consumers can return opened or unopened bags to the place of purchase or to MLO Products, Inc., 2351 N Watney Way, Fairfield, California 94533. Consumers with questions may contact MLO Customer Service at 1-888-436-4769.
