Advisory: Massive Recall of Peanut Tainted Products


Last November, Adams Flavors, Foods and Ingredients – a Texas-based company – issued a voluntary recall of a number of their spices due to peanut-contaminated cumin. Since then, the problem has escalated into the largest series of allergen recalls since the U.S. Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) took effect in 2006.

Hundreds of thousands of seasoned beef, poultry and pork products have been pulled from the market, and hundreds of products from many companies have been recalled.

Allergic Living has a terrific summary of the issue along with an FAQ, table of recalled products and links to FDA resources. We urge all consumers shopping for individuals with peanut allergy to check to see if any of the products in their households are affected.

  1. Thanks for info… But what about restaurants that may have purchased these products, particularly the spices? Can anything be done to know if these products may be in restaurants?
