The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product contained peanut allergen through cross contamination of raw materials. The firm is investigating if the affected products contained peanut allergen through cross contamination of raw materials by one of our vendors since at the time we were a peanut free facility. We have since changed our suspected vendor of cashew butter and our new vendor has dedicated cashew line and claims no chance of cross contamination.
