Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following peanut allergy alert is from the FDA on September 22, 2015.

Tastee Apple, Inc. issues allergy alert on undeclared peanuts in 3-ounce packages of Tastee Apples Plain Caramel Apples because they may contain undeclared peanuts.
The recalled “Plain Caramel Apples” were distributed in eight states (OH, PA, MD, MA, NY, TX, NJ, IN) in retail stores.
Note that this was not a product quality-issue and only involves Plain Caramel Apples with the specific UPC 35266-00027 and code date of 9 29 mentioned below.
The product comes in a 3-ounce, clear-plastic package marked with UPC 0-35266-00027-3 and an expiration date of 9 29 stamped on the front label. Some packages were mislabeled, and the Plain Caramel Apple include peanuts which are not listed in the ingredients on the labels. The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the peanut-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes
Production of the single pack Plain Caramel Apple product has been suspended until a label correction can be made to the Plain Caramel Apple label.
Customers who purchased the 3-ounce packages of Plain Caramel Apple listed above are urged to discard them and take their receipt to the store where purchased for a refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at Tastee Apple, Inc., customerservice@tasteeapple.com; Phone: 740-498-8316 (between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday)
