WASHINGTON – Hostess is recalling snack cakes and donuts because they may have come in contact with peanut residue, “out of an abundance of caution.”

Hostess is voluntarily recalling 710,000 cases of select snack cakes and donuts as a direct result of a recent recall by a supplier due to certain lots of its flour having the potential of low-level undeclared peanut residue.

While those who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume products containing peanut allergens, the amount of peanut exposure from use of the flours and affected products is considered to be low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers.

To date, Hostess has received notice of two allergic reactions related to the product covered by this recall.

This recall applies only to the products listed here. This recall does not affect any other Hostess Brands products.
