Casey's Bakery Inc. of Sioux Center, Iowa is voluntarily recalling all Snickers 8x8 cakes produced prior November 14, 2015, because the cakes contain undeclared peanuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Snickers 8x8 cake was distributed to stores in Orange City, Hartley and Hawarden by delivery to grocery stores. The cakes were also sold out of the Casey's Bakery retail store in Sioux Center. The cakes were only distributed within the state of Iowa.
All cakes with date codes prior to 696 or purchased before Nov. 14, 2015 are being recalled. The code may be found on the back of the product package. Cakes come in individual foil trays with clear plastic lids and are sold frozen. Net weight is 23 oz.
No Illnesses have been reported to date.
The recall was voluntarily initiated after a label inspection was performed and it was discovered the label did not properly claim peanuts in the toppings as an ingredient. The labeling has been updated and all current Snickers 8x8 cakes properly declare the peanuts in the toppings on the Ingredient List.
This recall does not apply to any other Casey's Bakery Products.
Consumers may return the product to Casey's Bakery Inc. for a full refund. For more information, contact Kathy De Groot at 712-722-2551 9 am to 5 pm CST Monday through Friday.
