If you have cashews sitting in your pantry or cupboard, you should probably take a minute to give the package a quick inspection. This is because SunTree Snack Foods has announced a voluntary recall of their cashew products. The reason being? Well, there could be glass pieces in the mix.
Four Brand Names Affected
SunTree Snack Foods has announced this voluntary recall of cashews—sold under the Happy Belly, Prince & Spring, Harris Teeter, and HEB brand names—out of an abundance of caution. It was sparked by a customer who reported finding glass pieces in their container of cashews.
According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), no injuries have been reported so far. However, SunTree Snack Foods went ahead with the recall in an effort to “protect public health.”
“Although our investigation is ongoing, we believe the source of the glass is cashews that were an ingredient common to the products subject to this recall,” SunTree wrote in its press release.
