FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - June 14, 2013 - See’s Company of San Francisco is recalling all Milk and Dark Raisins because it may contain undeclared tree nuts and eggs. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to tree nuts (e.g.: almonds, walnuts, pecans, cashews) and/or eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Product was distributed nationwide through See’s Candies Retail Stores, Licensees and Mail Order. The product is sold bulk and packaged at the stores in 8oz clear cellophane bags. No illnesses have been reported to date. The product UPC are as follows: Milk Raisins UPC: 737666083060 and Dark Raisins UPC: 737666083053.
The recall was initiated after a retail store discovered a chocolate covered pecan in the raisin bulk pack. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused because of shared lines that produce nut containing candies. There is a potential that nut and egg residue may be present in some of the chocolate enrobed raisins.
Consumers who have purchased Sees’ Candies Milk or Dark Raisins and are sensitive to nuts and eggs are urged to return the raisins to the place of purchase for a full refund or exchange. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-789-7337 (Monday thru Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm PDT).
