Hostess recalls thousands of snack cakes due to possible dangerous residue
We've got another reason for you to skip the Ding Dongs this week. Hostess is recalling 710,000 cases of its snacks due to possible undeclared peanut residue. For those of you with snack cake-loving kids who happen to have a peanut allergy, that's pretty scary news. Hostess has gotten two reports of allergic reactions from its product so far.
The affected products include Chocodiles, Ding Dongs, Zingers, single-serve snack cakes and doughnuts and multipack boxes and bagged doughnuts, all with a best-buy date of May or June 2016. You can return these items for a full refund.
Hostess is recalling these products because they were manufactured with flour that was recalled for the same reason — undeclared peanut residue.
