Planters Cocktail Peanuts Recall Issued Due To Water Exposure

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.
