For Immediate Release
November 28, 2017
Virginia Diner, Inc. is voluntarily issuing a recall of 10 oz. cans of Plow & Hearth Chocolate Covered Cashews at Plow & Hearth's locations and nationwide (Mail Order) as a precaution because they may contain peanuts and peanut allergens. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. A label mix up was discovered by a consumer who received and opened a Cashew Tower Set (3 individual cashew cans) of which one can, the 10 oz. Chocolate Covered Cashews, were found to have Salted Peanuts.
The Virginia Diner, Inc. is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in administering this voluntary recall. The Virginia Diner has not received any reports of illness or injury to date regarding this product.
Only the following PRODUCT and LOT CODE is affected, found on the bottom of each can:
UPC Code: 085582089193
Weight: 10 oz
Package Type: Can
Label: Plow & Hearth Chocolate Covered Cashews
Lot Code: 100917 XLSP
BEST BY: 10 04 18
This recall does not apply to any other Virginia Diner or Plow & Hearth branded products.
The Chocolate Covered Cashews, used in Cashew Towers (item #89291) were sold to and distributed from Plow & Hearth catalogs, www.PlowHearth.com website, and Plow & Hearth Retail Stores between October 25, 2017 and November 17, 2017. Customers purchased Cashew Towers, from the Plow & Hearth Catalog, or purchased the Cashew Tower from a Plow & Hearth Store. Virginia Diner and Plow & Hearth are requesting return of cans with the Lot Code of 100917 XLSP to a Plow & Hearth store, or to Plow & Hearthís corporate office in Madison, VA for a replacement.
Consumers who have questions or concerns should contact the Virginia Diner at 866-296-6887, Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm EDT.
Within the Cashew Tower is a can of Plow & Hearth Chocolate Covered Cashews (UPC Code: 0 85582 0919 3). This one product may contain salted peanuts instead of chocolate cashews (the other two items in the tower are correct).
If the can of chocolate cashews has the following information printed on the bottom of the can, it is subject to this recall (see photo).
If the can does not contain this information but instead has a CCC printed at the end of the second line of the lot information, then it is not subject to this recall and is fine for sale in the store. This is the only item within the tower that may be mislabeled, therefore a (CCC) on the bottom of the chocolate covered cashews verifies that the item is correct.
