EAST HANOVER, NJ – Mondelēz Global LLC announced today a voluntary recall of two varieties of belVita Breakfast Sandwich products, manufactured in the U.S. and sold nationwide, due to the possibility that the products may contain undeclared peanut resulting from cross-contact on a single manufacturing line. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanut may risk serious or life-threatening allergic reactions by consuming these products.
This recall is limited exclusively to the belVita Breakfast Sandwich products listed here, available at retail stores nationwide. No other belVita products, Mondelēz Global LLC products, or markets outside the United States are included in or affected by this recall.
Mondelēz Global LLC became aware of this issue during an internal manufacturing inspection, when the potential presence of peanut protein residue on the line used to make these products was discovered. There have been three unconfirmed reports of possible allergic reaction to date related to these products.
Consumers who have a peanut allergy should not eat these products and should discard any product identified in the grid above they may have. Consumers can contact the company at 1-855-535-5948, 24 hours a day, for more information about the recall, and Consumer Relations specialists are available Monday-Friday from 9AM-6PM EST.
This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Read more about this recall on the FDA website.
