Recall Issued for Cashews in 30 States

Recall Issued for Cashews in 30 States

( – Despite their best efforts to produce safe goods for consumers, sometimes, manufacturers have to issue recalls due to defects, contamination, allergens, or other issues. One food company is now issuing a notice that could affect people nationwide.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently posted a company announcement from John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc., warning customers that its honey-roasted cashews may contain undeclared allergens, particularly milk and coconut. The release, issued on March 12, noted that Walmart stores in 30 states plus on the retail giant’s website distributed the product.

The Agency advised consumers to check the container, an 8.25-oz plastic can with a blue label with UPC code 078742133348. The affected products include a “Best by” date of July 08 2025 GH2, which purchasers can find on the bottom of the can.

John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc. decided to issue the recall after a consumer complained that they found coconut cashews inside a container of honey-roasted cashews. After an internal investigation, the company discovered that a few cans had received incorrect labels during the manufacturing process.

Anyone who has received the wrong product can return it to the manufacturer for a full refund or discard it. The manufacturer advises purchasers not to consume it as it could potentially cause deadly reactions in those with allergies.

Consumers who have questions can also contact the company directly by email at [email protected] or by calling the customer service hotline at 1-800-874-8734 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central Time.

Other companies that have issued recalls lately for undeclared allergens include Wesco Fresh for its Mint No Bake Cookies, which has an undeclared peanut allergen, and KALO, for its single slices of Chocolate or Carrot Cake, for potentially failing to list soy.
