Publix recalls ‘Asian mix’ due to undeclared peanuts

Out of an abundance of caution, Publix Super Markets is issuing a voluntary recall for Publix Asian Mix because the product contains peanuts that are not declared on the packaging.

The Publix Asian Mix was distributed to all Publix retail locations in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee and North Carolina. Publix Asian Mix is sold in 14 oz. clamshell containers in the Publix produce department with the UPC 41415-20286. The recall includes all sell-bydates between 01/03/15 and 02/03/15.

Publix discovered the undeclared allergen during in-house testing from the ingredient supplier.

According to Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE), Peanut allergy is one of the most common food allergies. Peanuts can cause a severe, potentially fatal, allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). Trace amounts of peanut can cause an allergic reaction.

“As part of our commitment to food safety, potentially impacted product has been removed from all store shelves,” said Maria Brous, Publix media and community relations director. “To date, there have been no reported cases of illness. Consumers who have purchased the products in question may return the product to their local store for a full refund. Publix customers with additional questions may call our Customer Care Department at 1-800-242-1227 or by visiting our website at www.publix.com.”
