Rite Aid announces recall

Hostess Brands, LLC announced that it has initiated a voluntary product recall of select Rold Gold Tiny Twists, Rold Gold Thins, Rold Gold Sticks and Rold Gold Honey Wheat Braided pretzels, due to a potential undeclared peanut allergen. This action is taken as a direct result of a recent recall conducted by a Frito-Lay supplier of certain lots of its flour. 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. More information about the flour recall can be found on the FDA's website at     
The affected Rold Gold packages are sold in retail stores and via foodservice and vending customers throughout the United States, and have "guaranteed fresh" dates ranging from June 28, 2016 - August 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.

It is important to note that products that do not include 32 in the second and third positions of the manufacturing code are not impacted.
