"People with an allergy or sensitivity to macadamia nuts are at risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products," the FDA states. "The recalled product was distributed in packaging that does not reveal the presence of macadamia nuts."
The products were sold in 6 oz. clear plastic tub containers with a Best Before date of 10/13/23.
