The voluntary recall was initiated by Araya after reviewing with the FDA the current product labels and determining that the allergen declaration was not complete since it did not state all the allergens present in the facility. The firm also uses peanuts in some products; however, peanuts are declared as an allergen on all product labels and are not part of this recall.

 

Customers who purchased any of the recalled products listed above and are allergic or have a severe sensitivity to wheat, tree nuts, milk protein or soy, please do not consume the products. Please discard them. For a full refund, consumers may visit us at any of our stores with your proof of purchase receipt. Store locations are: 2013 W. Gray St., Houston TX 77019; 1141 Uptown Park Blvd., Houston TX 77056; and 1575 West Grand Pkwy S., Katy TX 77494.
