Sesame sticks mix and roasted and salted sunflower meat tub products
WARREN, Mich. – Lipari Foods has issued a voluntary recall of specific lots of sesame sticks mix and roasted and salted sunflower meat tub products packaged by sister company JLM due to an undeclared cashew (tree nut) allergen. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to cashews run the risk of a serious or life- threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The products were distributed to retail stores throughout Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.
Products were distributed as generic product without branding.
The affected products can be identified by:
|Brand||Product||Lipari Product #||Size||Lot Code||Best By Date||UPC|
|JLM TUB||SESAME STICKS MIX||368268||11 oz.||08202209B
|JLM TUB||SUNFLOWER MEAT
There are no reported illnesses in connection with these products to date.
This was brought to our attention by our sister company, JLM after they discovered cashews (tree nuts) in the bulk Oil Roasted and Salted Sunflower Seeds product from their bulk supplier, Shah Trading Co. The bulk product was used to package the Sesame Sticks Mix and Roasted/Salted Sunflower Meat Tub products. Lipari Foods non-branded products are being recalled as they may contain an undeclared allergen. We are working closely with the FDA to ensure that all potentially impacted product has been pulled from commerce.
