Iowa & Illinois, If You Have This Sweet Snack You Need To Get Rid Of It Now
A recent recall for a popular sweet snack might impact the pantries of folks in Iowa and Illinois.
Second Nature Brands is recalling the 4-oz packages of it's Gluten Free Reese's Pieces Brownie Brittle because it might actually contain undeclared wheat, which could obviously pose a problem for folks with a gluten allergy.
If you have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat, you run the risk of a really dangerous allergic reaction if you consume these products, according to the FDA. So far, one illness has been reported in connection to this problem.
The Impacted Product
The recall affects the 4-ounce pouches of the Brownie Brittle with these specifications:
- UPC 711747011562
- Lot codes SG 1054 15/NOV/2023 1S and SG 1054 15/NOV/2023 2S (you'll find those on the backside of the pouch)
Here's what the product looks like:
And the backside looks like this (peep the 'best by' there towards the bottom):
The FDA says that the recall came about after it was found out that the product did actually contain gluten and the packaging didn't reflect that. That happened because of cross-contamination at a co-manufacturer.
Meanwhile, the production of the snack has been suspended until the FDA and Brownie Brittle both are convinced that the problem is fixed.
What You Need To Do
Check your pantry and if you have this product with those specifically recalled lot codes, don't eat it and contact Brownie Brittle for a full refund.
You can reach them at (800) 651-7263 Monday-Friday from 8:30AM - 5:00PM EST or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
