Oxford, Pennsylvania -based Sunny Dell Foods, LLC is recalling its 12-ounce jars of Rao’s Homemade Brand Roasted Red Peppers with Portobello Mushrooms due to undeclared tree nuts allergens, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
The product comes in a 12-ounce, glass jar marked with lot # SD21160-03 RPOA, on top of the lid/cap, with UPC 7 47479 00110 6.
The recalled products were distributed across retail stores in the Northeast U.S. and through mail order e-commerce.
The agency noted that the affected jars of the condiment may contain undeclared pine nuts, a known allergen.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that a tree nut-containing condiment product was distributed in the Rao’s Homemade Brand Roasted Peppers with Portobello Mushrooms packaging that did not reveal the presence of tree nuts.
As per the investigation, the problem was caused by an accidental mislabeling during the production run.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to tree nuts may get serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
However, the company has not received any reports of illnesses in connection with the issue to date.
Consumers who have purchased 12-ounce packages recalled condiment are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
In similar recalls, La Mirada, California-based Daiso California LLC in mid- February called back certain prepackaged snacks due to undeclared allergen ingredient, including tree nuts.
