Volusia County, FL-If you’ve got Rold-Gold pretzels in your pantry, you should check the dates and the manufacturing code. Frito-Lay has issued a recall that is the direct result of a recent recall by a supplier of certain lots of flour for undeclared peanut residue.
The guaranteed fresh dates range from June 28 until August 23, 2016. The information you should look for on the packages can be found below or click here to go to the website.
The affected Rold Gold packages are sold in retail stores and via foodservice and vending customers throughout the United States, and directly under the “guaranteed fresh” dates is a 9-digit manufacturing code that includes the numbers “32” in the second and third position (example: x32xxxxxx).
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 20½ 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.
The Rold Gold Tiny Twists are also included in select multipack offerings. The impacted multipacks have “use by” dates on the front of the package. Directly next to or underneath the “use by” date is a 11-digit manufacturing code that will include the letter combination AM, TO, QH, QC or SW in the second and third position (example: xAMxxxxxxxx). The impacted products have different, varying “use by” dates, including:
20 count Baked & Popped Mix — “use by” dates ranging from May 31 – July 26, 2016
