B&G Foods Issues Voluntary Allergy Alert For Limited Number Of Boxes Of Crackers Containing Peanut Butter Cookies

(WASHINGTON D.C.) – B&G Foods announced today it is voluntarily recalling a very limited number of boxes of a single date code of 6 oz. Back to Nature Organic Rosemary & Olive Oil Stoneground Wheat Crackers, with a “best by” date of APR 25 2021, after learning that a very limited number of the cracker boxes were inadvertently filled with foil wrapped pouches of peanut butter cookies, which contain peanut, an allergen undeclared on the label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanut run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the cookies contained in the recalled boxes. There is no health risk associated with this product for individuals without an allergy to peanut.

B&G Foods discovered this issue when it received consumer complaints that the foil bags within two boxes of Back to Nature Organic Rosemary & Olive Oil Stoneground Wheat Crackers contained peanut butter cookies. The foil bags do correctly indicate whether the product contains rosemary & olive oil crackers or peanut butter cookies.

A third party co-packer inadvertently used a small number of Back to Nature Organic Rosemary & Olive Oil Stoneground Wheat Crackers product boxes in connection with a production run of peanut butter cookies. Back to Nature Organic Rosemary & Olive Oil Stoneground Wheat Crackers were not produced on that date. As such, B&G Foods believes this recall impacts only a handful of boxes of Back to Nature Organic Rosemary & Olive Oil Stoneground Wheat Crackers.
