The family owned brand, Tastee Apple, has issued an allergy alert on undeclared peanuts in 3-ounce packages of Plain Caramel Apples. While it doesn’t mention peanuts in the ingredient list on the packaging, there may be peanuts present in the treat. People with peanut allergies run the risk of serious and life-threatening allergic reactions if they eat these apples.
The recalled apples were distributed in eight states: Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Texas, New Jersey, and Indiana.
Tastee Apple’s recalled Plain Caramel Apples come in a 3-ounce, clear-plastic package marked with UPC 0-35266-00027-3 and an Expiration Date of 9-29 is stamped on the front label.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
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.
