Feb. 15, 1997
EAST HANOVER, N.J. (AP) _ Planters Co. said Friday it is recalling some bags of Honey Roasted Cashews because they may contain peanuts that could be fatal to people allergic to them.
The 2 oz. bags were distributed to stores in eastern and southern states, northern California and Hawaii. The blue metallic bags are stamped with the numbers 1-7-98. The package ingredients do not list peanuts.
No other Planters products are affected, the company said.
Peanut allergies can cause serious or life-threatening reactions.
Planters said consumers with peanut allergies who have bought the cashews should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
