Candy mislabeled as not containing nuts recalled across the U.S.

A Minnesota candy company is recalling a product sold nationwide because the boxes containing the treats are mislabeled and don’t list nuts as an ingredient, posing a serious health risk to those with allergies.

Abdallah Candies is recalling 8-ounce boxes of “sea salt almond alligators” with the code 0315 on the bottom, the Apple Valley, Minn.-based maker of chocolate, caramels and candy said Tuesday in a notice posted by the Food and Drug Administration. 

“People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to almonds run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products,” the recall states.

The recalled candy was distributed nationwide and sold in specialty retail stores, grocery shops and other retail outlets from March 1, 2024, to March 29, 2024. Consumers who bought the recalled candy were advised to destroy the product or return it to the place of purchase.

Consumers with questions can call Abdallah Candies Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central time at (952) 890-4770 or (800) 348-7328.
