About 3,000 cases of Planters Cocktail Peanuts are being recalled because they might have been contaminated by unsafe water.
The Planters Cocktail Peanuts recall was announced by the manufacturer Kraft Foods Group, Inc. and the FDA on April 6, indicating that the peanuts may have been exposed to water that was not intended for use on food.
There have been no illnesses or complaints reported in connection with the recalled Planters peanuts, but the exposure may have occurred during the production process at a Kraft facility in Suffolk, Virginia.
The recall affects one lot of Planters Cocktail Peanuts sold in 12 oz canisters and with a UPC of 2900007212. They also have a code date of 09-Jan-14. The code date is located on the bottom of the can. The affected peanuts were shipped to the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
Kraft warns that consumers should not eat peanuts affected by the recall. Instead, they can return them to the store where they were purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers with questions can call Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at (800) 396-2133.
