Frito-Lay recalls pretzels for peanut traces

WASHINGTON – Frito-Lay has recalled pretzels that it says could contain peanuts that aren’t listed on its packaging.

On Monday, Frito-Lay recalled Rold Gold Tiny Twists, Rold Gold Thins, Rold Gold Sticks and Rold Gold Honey Wheat Braided after its flour supplier found undeclared peanut residue in its batches.

“The Rold Gold products subject to the recall may have been produced using the recalled flour and, as a result, these Rold Gold products may contain low levels of undeclared peanut residue,” Frito-Lay said in a news release.

The affected Rold Gold packages have “guaranteed fresh” dates ranging from June 28, 2016 – Aug. 23, 2016 on the front of the package. Directly underneath the “guaranteed fresh” date is a 9-digit manufacturing code that includes the numbers “32” in the second and third position.

The following products with the above-described “guaranteed fresh” dates and manufacturing codes are impacted:

  • Rold Gold Tiny Twists – 1 oz. , 2 oz., 16 oz. and 20 ½ oz.
  • Rold Gold Thins – 4 oz. and 16 oz.
  • Rold Gold Sticks – 16 oz.
  • Rold Gold Honey Wheat Braided – 10 oz.
