People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to Almonds, Walnuts, or Hazelnuts run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The two count packages of Assorted Pastries were distributed in El Paso,Texas at Fort Bliss Commissary and in Alamogordo, New Mexico at Holloman AFB Commissary.
