Walgreens Chocolate Covered Raisins may be Contaminated with Nuts, Soy

Walgreens has voluntarily recalled 13-oz. Walgreens Chocolate-Covered Raisins as the packages may contain ingredients from Walgreens Bridge Mix which has peanut, almond and soy ingredients. Apparently an error occurred when Walgreens Bridge Mix was mistakenly packaged with the Walgreens Chocolate-Covered Raisin labeling.

The affected product was distributed through Walgreen Co. distribution centers in Arizona, Connecticut and California and to Walgreens retail stores in the Northeastern and Western United States. The packages have a best by date of "Oct 42012A1", UPC number 04902245661, and item number 280217.  Customers who have purchased the product may return it to Walgreens for a full refund.

Walgreens discovered the incident after receiving a consumer complaint of an allergic reaction. The product manufacturer, GKI Foods, Inc. of Brighton, Mich., is also cooperating in the voluntary recall. Walgreen Stores have been asked to remove the product from their shelves. Walgreens and GKI Foods Inc.  are also working with the FDA on this recall.

Contact: Walgreens Product Quality Department at 847-315-2755, Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. central time.
