An Ohio-based company has announced a partial recall of its caramel apple products after it was discovered some packages were mislabeled and did not note in the ingredients list that the product contains peanuts.

Saying it is exercising “an abundance of caution,” Tastee Apple, Inc. has recalled its 3-ounce packages of Tastee Apple Peanut Caramel Apples with the UPC code: 0-35266-00027-3 and an expiry date of 9/29/15.

The company notes there have been no reports of illness from the apples thus far, and that consumers who purchased the products with this UPC code should discard them and take their receipt to retailers for a refund. Grocery chains affected by the recall include Giant as well as Stop and Shop, among others. The company also noted that this was not a “product quality” issue, and that the partial recall is entirely related to the incomplete labels.

Further questions related to the recall can be directed to Tastee themselves at [email protected] or 740-498-8316 (between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday).
