BelVita Breakfast Sandwich biscuits undergo NATIONWIDE recall following incidents of allergic reactions
Two variants of BelVita Breakfast Sandwich biscuits have been pulled off the shelves in a voluntary recall due to potential allergenic reactions to undisclosed peanuts.
Mondelez Global LLC, based in New Jersey, has taken a proactive step to voluntarily recall two of their breakfast sandwich flavors, Dark Chocolate Creme and Cinnamon Brown Sugar with Vanilla Creme. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made this public on Monday, following three yet-to-be-verified reports of allergic reactions.
The aforementioned flavors could potentially contain peanuts, a detail that failed to be mentioned on the product ingredients list. The FDA warned that ‘Individuals with allergies or severe sensitivities to peanuts risk suffering from serious or even life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume these products.’
The recall exclusively pertains to these two flavors, available for purchase at retail outlets throughout the United States.
This issue was unearthed during an internal manufacturing inspection at Mondelez when potential peanut protein residue was discovered on the production line of these products. The FDA has encouraged consumers with peanut allergies to dispose of these particular items.
The Dark Chocolate Creme and Cinnamon Brown Sugar with Vanilla Creme variants of the BelVita Breakfast Sandwich have been recalled on a voluntary basis. Every product associated with this recall holds a ‘best when used by date’ that is on or before February 25, 2024.
Peanut allergies represent one of the most prevalent types of severe allergic reactions, affecting 1-2% of the population, as reported by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.
Reactions to these allergens can manifest as hives, redness, swelling, itching or tingling around the mouth and throat, diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, throat constriction, shortness of breath, and a runny nose.
The voluntary recall impacts all retail stores across the United States. Detailed below are the specifics of the products withdrawn:
