Chester, Illinois company, Gilster-Mary Lee has voluntarily recalled one lot of Chocolate Chunk Brownie Mix because it contains cartons containing undeclared walnuts, according to a FDA firm press release Jan. 3.

The affected product is Food Club Chocolate Chunk Brownie Mix packaged in cases of 12/21.5oz. Cartons have a Best By date of NOV 28 13 D02 (UPC# 36800-13486). This Best By date code is located on the corrugated case AND on the top flap of the carton.

The packaging did not declare walnuts and the error was detected during an internal review. An investigation indicated that during this production run walnut brownie cartons were inadvertently exchanged with plain Chocolate Chunk Brownie cartons. No illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall.

According to the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network, an estimated 1.8 million Americans have an allergy to tree nuts. Allergic reactions to tree nuts are among the leading causes of fatal and near-fatal reactions to foods.

Tree nuts include, but are not limited to, walnut, almond, hazelnut, cashew, pistachio, and Brazil nuts. These are not to be confused or grouped together with peanut, which is a legume, or seeds, such as sunflower or sesame.

The product was distributed to Abingdon, VA. Warehouse on December 5, 2012.

For questions, consumers can call Gilster-Mary Lee Corp. at             618-826-2361       ext. 3283 or 3035, 8:00am to 4:30pm CST.
