Ferrara Candy Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Peanuts and Wheat in Almond Supremes with a Best by Date of 4/22/2017

September 19, 2016 - From the FDA:

Ferrara Candy Company has initiated a voluntary recall of Brach’s® 5 ounce Almond Supremes with a best by date of 4/22/2017 after discovering that some Brach’s® Almond Supremes packages may include Brach’s® Bridge Mix, a product that contains peanuts and wheat. No other Ferrara Candy Company products are affected. he affected product was distributed throughout retail stores in Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin. Recalled items include:

  • Item: 39733
  • Description: Brach’s® Almond Supremes, 5oz
  • Item UPC - 11300 39733
  • Code Date: 6G23CC33102

After discovering the issue, Ferrara Candy immediately investigated and determined that the packaging error was caused by an incorrect roll of packaging film being accidentally loaded in one of its manufacturing facilities. Ferrara Candy has moved quickly to locate the potentially affected product and has currently retrieved over half of it. To date, only six bags of Brach’s® Almond Supremes have been found to include Brach’s® Bridge Mix, and to date no illnesses have been reported in connection with this issue.
