Harry & David recall nut-containing candy

Apr 16, 2007

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of approximately 2,000 boxes of candies distributed by the Harry & David Operations Corp.

The recalled candy might contain undeclared nuts, including peanuts, almonds, pecans, walnuts and cashews, thereby posing a health risk for people who are allergic to nuts.

Harry & David is recalling all lot codes of the products that were packaged in 6 oz. paperboard boxes with a folded over top. The candy, packaged with various striped color variations, includes: Dark Chocolate Clusters The Ultimate Walnut Cherry Caramel Indulgence candies in green and cream striped boxes; Dark Chocolate Clusters The Ultimate Peanut & Peanut Butter Indulgence in red and cream striped boxes; Dark Chocolate Clusters The Ultimate Pecan Cranberry Caramel Indulgence in dark red and cream striped boxes; Whole Almond Confection in brown and white striped boxes, and Whole Cashew Confection in dark red and cream striped boxes.

The candies were produced and packaged by a third party vendor and distributed nationwide through Harry and David Stores beginning in March.

Consumers can return the recalled candy for a full refund and can contact the Medford, Ore., company at 800-233-1101.
