Caramel apples removed from Giant shelves after manufacturer’s recall

WASHINGTON — Giant supermarkets have removed a brand of caramel apples from their shelves after the manufacturer recalled them, saying the apples have peanut in them, a potential allergen that’s not listed among the ingredients.

Tastee Apple has recalled three-ounce Tastee Caramel Apples with a UPC of 3526600027 and a best-by date of Sept. 29, 2015, Giant says in a statement.

People with an allergy or a severe sensitivity to peanuts “may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product,” Giant says.

Anyone who has bought these apples should throw out the unused portion and bring his receipt to Giant for a refund.

For more information, you can call Tastee at 800-262-7753 or Giant at 888-469-4426.
