Pepperidge Farm bagels sent to stores in 23 states – including Minnesota – have been recalled as they could set off reactions in people with nut allergies.
The Associated Press reports that the company is recalling 46,000 packages of bagels as they may contain peanuts or almonds, after it was alerted to the problem by a bakery that makes the bagels.
On its website, Pepperidge Farm says that no illnesses have been reported so far, but said the contaminants could cause serious or life-threatening allergic reactions.
The recall includes 21 oz plain, everything and cinnamon raisin bagels, and 17 oz packs of mini bagels in plain, brown sugar/cinammon, whole wheat and cinnamon raisin flavors.
The affected packs have sell-by dates ranging from February 7 to February 12.
The company said customers can return the bagels to the store for a full refund, and added that no other products have been affected.
