The recalled product was distributed throughout the Midwest to HyVee Stores.

The recalled products can be identified by the following:

  • HyVee Chocolate Caramel Clusters – UPC 7723212515 9 oz plastic tub with the following lot code: Sell By: 04/07/14 F30202 located on the bottom of each tub.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with either of the products being recalled.

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.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the HyVee Chocolate Caramel Clusters were mispackaged in HyVee Chocolate Covered Caramel labels. The HyVee Chocolate Covered Caramel label does not list peanuts as an ingredient.

Consumers who have purchased HyVee Chocolate Caramel Clusters or HyVee Chocolate Covered Caramels are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Palmer Candy Company (800) 831-0828, Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM.
